    I was thinking Oxford like my Cleverleys but changed my mind and edited to Suede anything... maybe a 3-eyelet derby.

    I think he means a "blind brogue".
    Manton's version.

    Damn, exactly what I was going to write... I'll specify that the brown blucher be a wingtip and not a longwing, but yeah.

    The black captoes can be worn with any suit. The brown bluchers can be worn with any sports coat and trousers combination. And the chukka boots can be worn on the weekends.

    black cap-toe (give or take a medallion)
    mid brown suede semibrogue.
    number 8/oxblood-ish longwing

    should cover most things/seasons. if 4 shoes, make the suede semibrogues tan, and get a midbrown smooth leather double or single monk.
