Amalfi is great. Particularly recommend Ravello
I base it more on what I'm wearing. For example, I don't like the look of shoes being much lighter than my pants and I tend to wear lighter pants in the summer, so I'm much more likely to wear tan shoes in the summer.
Try Herring or Meermin
thank you!
I'm looking for a suit with flap pockets and relatively thin lapels. Right around 3 inches. Is the Sienna my best option?
This is a bit above budget, but very nice: http://us.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carlos-santos/products/carlos-santos-field-boot
I like those better too but no storm welt and scotch grain, so definitely not as good in the rain. But it seems like you won't be wearing them in really bad weather so should be fine
Something like this would be good for that budget. https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4798 Scotch grain, rubber sole, storm welt. Not local obviously, however, it's a bit under budget if you need to return.
I also really like the Simpson but it doesn't fit me well. The Vass U last and JL 8000 are great for me because they have a nice chisel shape but don't make my feet too elongated. The Vass F, EG 82, Carmina Robert and JL 7000 are nice, more conservative lasts.
My beaters are a pair of Loake Pimlico chukkas that I got on sale from Periwear. They're dark brown suede with dainite. If I need to be dressed conservatively I have a pair of Vass black F last oxfords with topys on them. I try not to abuse those too much so I carry galoshes too.
