I've found that my brogue wingtips are the most versatile shoes I own. My fav is the AS Hunt in mahogany.
You are correct, I was going on the basis that the Park Ave Bal's would be too formal. Those AS Hunt's are really nice but the brouging might make them limited time wears. Most folks are in the thick rubber soled loafer boat so they would not go unnotticed.
Thanks for the good luck nohit.

'Course, opinions on dress loafers are varied. Me, I like them, and even wear them with suits, depending on the suit, the situation, and my mood. But even many of those people who disapprove of loafers with suits would see nothing wrong with wearing them with odd trousers and a button down.
I have considered tassel's Miachael but they seem a little old manish. I am only 30 and not sure if I can pull something like that off in a casual Information Technology environment.

I wear an Allen Edmonds Clifton blutcher very often. Not too ornate.
I was considering penny-loafers and will check out your suggestions Makoto Chan. Also checking out the Clifton as well.
Thank you all for the suggestions/comments.
