Let me know how it goes. I'd like to try them as well.

I found a coupon online for $25 off as well.

we all have our respective budgets and ways to justify spending...........this makes sense, and if you are bound to this philosophy then you are doing the right thing. I think most people who have started with AE as their benchmark soon change it to Carmina and others.

Personally, AE has never made anything that appeals to me and I'm baffled by the people who like their aesthetic.

Great points. AE doesn't make the best looking shoe by any means but they are inexpensive. I own about 5-6 pairs and they have served their purpose.

I"m looking to branch out and buy more sleeker shoes, but I won't spend $500 on a pair of shoe (Carmina) in my current state. I have other priorities and it's simply financially irresponsible for now.

I'm looking at Meermin or https://philipmercertoronto.com/ this guy.

I think I have said what I can on the subject.  I'm not trying to twist your arm.  If you feel shoes should not cost more than $250 - or that suits should not cost more than $500, then make your purchases accordingly.

Out of curiosity, what qualities do you look for in a shoe in terms of construction and materials? You've mentioned your preferences for your suits but not for dress shoes.

Out of curiosity, why can't you also continue to wear your derbies and loafers? Why do you need oxfords every day?

Honestly, I do not know that much about high grade dress shoes. I just want the shoes at the price/quality curve where diminishing returns will not justify higher price.

My advice from a couple of pages back to give SuitSupply footwear a try was met with silence. It's ok, as a married man, I am used to it. But I'd like to repeat it. To me they are a good entry point at under 300 Canadian.

As a married man myself, you got my "thumb up" :-)

Last week I had a friend who wanted help getting ready for a wedding on a reasonable budget, but like most normal people, anything over $300 for dress shoes was inconceivable, so I really had to rack my brain for where to look. We ended up going to Suit Supply first and it was an absolute win. Shoes were like $250 or less I think and looked great and seemed pretty well made, especially for the price. Their suits too, I was VERY impressed to be honest, especially at the price points. Plenty of their stuff is far off in the fashion zone but there were good solid basic navy suits for like $400-500 and considering you're looking at like $300-400 for suits from mall brands such as Jcrew, Club Monaco, Zara, H&M, etc, these are fantastic bang for buck in my opinion. I was really pleasantly surprised!

I'm a huge fan of SuitSuply for their suits in terms of style, although i don't love the quality of manufacturing. Having said that, i continue to buy suits from them because the style is unmatched elsewhere at that price point. I've never tried the shoes, but I'm comfortable spending $400-700 on shoes, so I don't think I'll go down the quality spectrum and buy their footwear.

I also really like the SuitSupply shirts- reasonable quality at that price point, loads of selection and great fits.

Agreed on the QC. I went in there and was impressed with the styles/variety/prices as most everyone concurs. H/e a closer look and little threads belied why you're getting such a good deal. I'll spend $100 more on a Vaughan Mills or Heartland Hugo Boss suit given this qual issue.
