    What would be your favourite shoe (or boot) style to get in brown suede? And what would you normally wear it with?

    I am fond of my medallion captoes and wear them mostly with odd trousers, cords, and flannel suits.

    I'm partial to monk-straps, especially after seeing these:

    And for those who can't do with just one buckle:

    I get the most use out of dark, but I like lighter (mid) browns as well.

    And am seriously considering these (in brown, rather than Aubergine)

    Made for BB by AS I believe, but they've only been in stock in sizes 8 and 13 forever now, so I assume they're never coming back. A shame because they're the perfect suede captoe in my mind.

    You can't beat the double monk design on dark suede, perfect for dress down and up
