If it were me and I could one and only one pair of shoes that needed to work in a casual setting but could do double duty if I needed something slightly dressy, I'd buy the "tobacco" Alden longwing that J Crew sells. The color works very well with jeans and chinos, and it doesn't hold a glass-like shine which in my eyes, is about one of the worst looks I have ever seen when paired with jeans.
