Folks I am back after a few months. My shoe wardrobe for the office is full on black (1 brogue and 1 cap toe) and I am looking for a brown pair to add into the rotation. Ideally I want something versatile that I can wear to work (trousers and shirts, rarely suits) and then wear along with jeans on the weekends. The two options that I am currently considering are a pair of Chestnut Chukkas and a pair of Chestnut Monks, both from N&L. Which of the two would you...
Second the Acquascutum recommendation I got myself a Bladen jacket for £275 at their outlet shop (not sure if that is an option for the OP)

Aquascutum has started their sale 40% off most items it seemed, other than woolen outerwear and scarves
I find that for the evenings a deep maroon/purple works very well. For daytime office wear, not so much.
Thanks for the replies everyone I am leaning towards getting the Barbour Intl. Any ideas on where I can pick it up at a bargain price? Has anyone got any exerpience with their wool overcoats? http://www.barbourbymail.co.uk/newpr...ategoryID=1971
Looking for some insight from this board on the relative merits of each for a waxed cotton jacket. I am looking for one to deal with the rain in London and the waxed jacket looks like it would go great with my raw denim jeans. Seems like a huge price difference b/w the 2 (see links below for example). Can you guys explain that to me? Other than the price difference what is the connotation associated with each...
thanks for the thoughts. @ amplified heat: I don't recall saying I dont want another layer. I need something to wear over a shirt and sweater combo since that is my usual work outfit. It is unusual for me to wear a suit to work. Perhaps that is what you are referring to?

@ mgomes: thanks, i am 6'2'' and pretty slim so hopefully the latter would work on me. Care to make some suggestions for other options?
Edited links They should work now
