Check out the British company Shipton & Heneage-they have a USA site. I bought a pair of suede boots and a pair of suede tassel loafers and they are very nice at $255-$275 or so. They also have some longer toe box styles that are more fashion forward than AE captoes or wingtips. Customer service was decent, but you have to deal with the time change and the fact that there is one person assigned to US orders (even on the web) and since she was "on holiday", my order sat...
I got one from Land's End for my son and it is a good value as well as all-season. It may have been $295 or cheaper. And it does have gold-tone buttons.
I just bought some from an SF seller: E-mail is lizhiqiang.a2@gmail.com. Having said that, I just posted a thread asking what to do with them: have not seen these anywhere as a current or emerging trend. But they were about $2 a pair, so, so what?!
I just bought a bunch of colored shoelaces--they seem to be mostly red, pink and orange--from a seller on SF. I did notice that someone had asked the seller if he/she had ever seen these in action. I myself have not, my sources (due to my location in Upstate NY) being solely publications: GQ, British GQ, Esquire (both) and Scott Shulman's book, "The Sartorialist."

Jergens makes a facial tanner with SPF-about 15 I think. Kills two birds, works great, although it has a bit of fragrance that dissipates quickly. Get the "medium to tan" darker version. $8 or so for a small tube. I use it in the morning and sometimes at lunch after the gym.
I agree with Terre by Hermes. It's one of my 6-8 staples.
Tam Dao by Diptyque. Great sandalwood.
Among my 6 or 7 is Creed Erolfa. Great scent of the sea and you can pretty much wear year round.
