I wear a Ferragamo cap toe- not sure if they offer the same model now but they sell the "Fantino" oxford for $495.

Very comfortable and great looking.

I am looking for a good wingtip oxford or boot(Boot doesn't have to be wingtip but can.) Does anyone have any brands they would suggest or particular models they would suggest? I don't think I am willing to fork out Alden or Allen Edmund prices yet. Still developing the style.

I think the lowest price you can really go and still expect to have something that could possibly last you a while is Meermin.  They're not big on boots, but have some very attractive wingtips.

Grenson makes a number of very sharp brogue/wingtip boots.  I like their Ella boot. 

 

I have always been partial to Red Wing boots- very well made and while they cost $300 and up, you will never need to buy another boot again- so choose wisely!   They have a nice brogue "ranger" style# 8127 that I like. 

 

Spend your money well and you will only have to spend it once!

Those wingtips are attractive! Thanks for the info Chase! I am going to read up on them and may order!

Someone convince me to get a pair of Allen Edmunds. I have been lurking on Styleforum and understand they will last a long time and are made of quality materials. The only thing I am worried about is there is not a single retailer in my area that sells them so I have to order online. I went to the mall and had my foot measured and all that so I know exactly what I am in that regard, but all shoes run a little different. So how do you order a pair online without ever trying them on?

You sound like you're already convinced. They're reasonably comfortable and well-made so if you like the style just buy it from somewhere with a return policy.
For what it's worth, mine (MacNeils) ran true to size. I think AE has a size chart on their website, you might want to check that out.

So I just bought a suit jacket from J Crew and several different size dress shirts from BB. What's the best way to go about posting pics to get opinions on the fit and/or tailoring recommendations? Should I post here or in a different thread? Should I start a new thread? Thanks.

There is a tailor's thread dedicated to just fit pics. This is also a pretty decent place to post.

Thanks. I'll try the tailor's thread.

Timberland makes a Chukka boot- around $100.  Go to Zappos and type in chukka and there are about 10-15 good boots there by Clarks, Sperry, Timberland and other less expensive brands.  Unfortunately $100 shoes will only last you about 1 year.

Absolutely. I appreciate that perfing can decrease formality, but as a practical matter they're conservative enough to wear with a business suit for pretty much any occasion.

Florsheim quality or not?
