    They are $325 at retail though... [​IMG]

    Magnanni is an excellent shoe. I'm still waiting for those Birminghams to appear at off-season discounts.

    $1200 awesome?

    Yup [​IMG] Just look at that sole edge treatment.

    I've been looking around for a reasonable pair of brown suede wingtips but no luck. Cole Haan had a pair with nasty contrast stitching, and I don't trust J. Crew.

    Any reccomendations on an entry-mid range price level option?

    Thanks!

    The Allen Edmonds McClain or Bel Air (pretty sure both have suede models that were recently discontinued) might be available on ebay for sub-$200.

    You might also want to look at the previously suggested Herring shoes and also Pediwear.

    if you're an 11.5D, you're in luck

    AE Bel Air's in suede are discontinued so grab them while you can

    the color is really interesting - it's more mink than chocolate

    they look amazing with grey wool and flannel pants

    I've been on the hunt for a nice set of suede casual wingtips after seeing this in the non-sartorialist thread..I really like the rubber thin lug sole. [​IMG] Can't seem to find anything similar to the Cucinelli's but I'm not looking to spend over $200 Can anyone recommend anything I should consider besides these two models..I really like the taupe suede for jeans, chords, and khaki's. Open to long tips as well. http://www.amazon.com/Bass-Mens-Barr...sim_dbs_shoe_4 http://www.6pm.com/bruno-magli-pilon...e-velour-suede
