Something like:   http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/frontpage/products/carmina-chocolate-u-wing     http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carmina/products/carmina-chocolate-suede-chukka       http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carmina/products/carmina-navy-suede-longwing     ...just to give some possibilities.
Well then... how about a double-breasted navy suit (and a white shirt)?
Aren't you supposed to wear black tie for this kind of event?
 Yeah, pretty much this (the bolded part). The important clues were: "job [...] in the city" (I assumed this meant the City of London in the narrow sense.)"a pair of shoes around the £200 mark""I prefer more round toe styles and they must be black." The Herring shoes seemed to fit what the OP was looking for.

There is a Mercer fit suit in the webshop now:   http://eu.suitsupply.com/nl_NL/suits/mercer-bordeaux-streep/P3941.html?vpid=P394124     It was available earlier today for 299 Euro, but somebody clearly jumped the gun or made a mistake when putting it on the website! The price is now said to be 349 Euro (or 349 GBP in the UK, which is considerably more!) but it is no longer available for purchase.
