    Hi all,

    Looking for suggestions for a simple dark brown shoe.

    The big catch: Do NOT want wingtips of any kind. (though a super minimal quarter-brogue might be ok).

    Any suggestions for a nice apron-toe style shoe (not split-toe)? (maybe called moc toe?)

    Something like the EG Dover, but without the split toe:

    i think the Charleston or Jackson from Allen Edmonds are somewhat similar to what you are looking for, albeit a lot cheaper than EGs.

    yep- Vass does the F with an apron- but their Norweger on the P2 is a thing of beauty with lots of hand work

    C & J also does an apron/ stitched upper- I have it but don't remember what it's called- comes in cordo and plain brown
