Also, for around $400 you can get a beautiful pair of brown and white Gravatis from Wilkes Bashford in SF. If I hadn't had my pair on order with Ron, I'd have bought them on the spot. They have a brown wingtip toe and white leather tops (no brown at all above the toe, all white and very summery). And finally, to be of some help while staying within
your price range, here's a link
to the Sargent Melly, their brown and white spectator (or should I say ebony and ivory), which will cost about $160+$30 S&H. Having seen them in the store, I am fairly certain that the BB shoes are Sargents, but the BB buyer may have chosen slightly different styling details from the Melly. Good luck finding a pair that suits you.
