    Re: Navy suede loafers - I'm not sure who makes them, but Charles Tyrwhitt has some navy suede tassel loafers on sale at present that could be worth checking out. I think that the sale price was under AUD$200.

    Re: Driving shoes - DJ's house brand, Milana, had some very decent suede driving mocs in store last summer. I don't know if they still have them, but they came in a few colours, including a light brown and navy, and we're well-priced.

    Re: Boat shoes. I've got a navy pair and a green pair and I virtually live in them on weekends in summer. Even the good brands are affordable and they are a great casual shoe, particularly in something other than basic brown.

    Shipping is not cheap, unfortunately, but Valmour in France sell flat, waxed shoelaces by Saphir, as well as pretty much every other Saphir product under the sun. Definitely worth getting some shoelaces if you are also ordering some polish, creme or Renovateur from Valmour.

    Looks like A Fine Pair of Shoes have brown/black flat waxed laces as well... not sure what they will do for shipping, but they have some of the nicest customer service of all the online shoe vendors, so you could give them a try.

    They have Saphir stuff as well... that's what reminded me.

    Yup. Noticed they had 2 different models. One with more narrow toe than the other. Wider ones were around $100 on sale and the other about $130 or so. Zara sells driving mocs too for about $120-$130 a pop which is fine since the sole will wear out on these kind of shoes before the uppers anyway.


    Or you can just get a pair of Herring Monzas wich is always a safe bet.
