I've been talking to them about custom making a custom cross between a loafer & a deck shoe, and they have promised to send pix when they have a sample. I am curious to see how they turn out.

[quote=JohnnyLaw;2507597]No. Beauchamp is pronounced more like Bo-SHAH (with a nasal shah). Actually, it's not. He asked how the English pronounce it, not the French.

That loafer looks like Alden. You can find them new online, on eBay, and here in the B&S. Usually without the horsebit. And excellent shoes they are. (I'm wearing a pair that I bought here as I type.)
My major criticism with your first choices are simply that they look as though they are made of cheap leather - which they are. As are 90% of mass market shoes. I think those Allen-Edmonds - Manhattan's look pretty good. They may be a little lighter than usual, but they're interesting and certainly not gaudy. They also don't look so conservative as to make you look like a fogey. Go for 'em.
What does "an aggressive sillhouette" mean?
Sell it and find something that fits.
