    Hi

    I'm in the market for a new pair of black oxfords for a series of weddings I've got coming up.

    I found these on Blue Fly and they look like a good shoe, with relatively simple styling. However, I must admit I don't know much about the quality of A. Testoni shoes.

    http://www.bluefly.com/A-Testoni-black-leather-cap-toe-casual-oxfords/p/319546401/detail.fly

    Does anyone have any thoughts/experiences to share?

    Alternatively, does anyone have an recommendations for a good website to buy oxfords from?

    I'm not looking to spend more than $300.

    Thanks for taking the time to read!

    I recently bought a Pair of A. Testoni shoes and the are great. When I recieved the shoes they were a little tight.I then started to wear them
    around the house for a few days and now they a comfortable.

    Thanks for the feedback Mr Engineer. I was about to get the Testonis but looks like I might head down the English shoe path

    At that price point... are you talking about Loake?

    I am ... or something from the Barker Professional range, but I'm starting to think I need to increase my budget

    The conscious here seems to be that anything from Loake that isn't from the 1880 range is not worth it...

    Do you have any recommendations?

    Nothing from personal experience (waiting for Christmas, alas), but if you're willing to go American, I'd recommend AE based on the consensus around here.
