I am in the market for two shoes. I want black shoes that I can wear to go out with jeans + sportcoat - I have some black ones but they are way too dressy. Looking for some loafers preferably that are sort of a mix between casual + formal yet can be worn any day with jeans + sweater. I also need some black or dark colored sneakers that are not overly athletic looking with random symbols all over them. What do you guys recommend?

Two ideas that I want to own in the future.

Vanishing Elephant Derbies in Black (If you can find them)

Alden 405 Indy Boots in Black

Must be something about the contrast of the dark uppers and light sole

@mkarim: I have black AE monks already. Also, I have a some ferragamos in more or less the burgundy/dark brown color with a strap. I have to admit that the BB you posted do look good.

@cioni2k: thanks for the suggestions. Any stores in NYC maybe will have those VE derbies?

Also, what do you guys think about RM william boots? Good for daily wear? Okay to go out in?
