Duveen: Finer suedes are made from buckskin ("Real Cape Buck") instead of reverse calf. Buckskin has a finer nap than reverse calf, which tends to be fuzzier. It goes very well with business suits. It is more expensive and a little harder (though by no means impossible) to find RTW. If you want a shoe for business casual, then a reverse calf slip-on would be perfect. I wouldn't wear that with a suit however. Maybe the thing to do would be to get one pair of slip-ons, see how much you like them, how often you wear them, etc. and once you're hooked (as you will be) go back for the lace-ups to wear with suits.
