I would second the suggestions about Allen-Edmonds outlets. They seem to be an unbeatable way to buy quality shoes at reasonable prices. HOWEVER, I have for many years had a hard and fast rule about not buying shoes by mail-order...too much risk of a poor fit with the attendant nuisance of returning the things. I'll give a recent example to show how much difference minor lot-to-lot variations can make. This summer I bought a pair of A-E Lexingtons in black that were a good fit. However, when I tried the same shoe in merlot (three different pairs), they were always a poor fit. (This may be because the AE #1 last seems to be sort of borderline on my foot. Another example: usually the AE #4 last gives a bespoke-like fit on my foot. However, the last time I was in Cabazon, I tried on the Hancock in black. It was...well, sorta "okay," but certainly not as good a fit as the brown Hancocks in my wardrobe. Unfortunately, a great many Americans do not live anywhere near an A-E outlet. Until the store in Cabazon opened late last year, the A-E outlet nearest my Long Beach, California, home was in Omaha, Nebraska. As I recall, the original inquirer was based in Rochester, NY, meaning that the nearest A-E outlets are in Manchester, VT (I think) and Riverhead on Long Island. Neither is an easy jaunt for our inquirer just to buy shoes unless he is really into wardrobe building.
