    And much nicer... [​IMG]

    +1, if it wasn't suede. Captoe + oxford = too much contradiction of suede's informality imo.

    I'm dying for a good suede monk/dbl monk... bring the Mora back please.

    (Sure, I'd kill for a pair of Oundle's in suede but $$$ and as all the Brit shoes are too-wide for my b-width feet short of custom).

    I would go for the Player's shoe from Allen edmonds. Very nice looking shoe, 2 shades of brown to choose from.

    Am I the only one who thinks that the formality of a balmoral contrasts with the casualness of suede? On one level I know that suede balmorals (whether captoe, semi-brogue, or full brogue) are classics and that lots of people wear them, it seems inconsistent to me in some way.

    Funny, that's exactly why I like suede balmorals - that combination of formality and informality. I prefer them to suede wingtips and longwings. Though I'm sure it's against "Da Rules." [​IMG]

    I like the Player's Shoe a lot.

    I really want a pair in Dark Brown and in Blue but I can't find a pair at a reasonable price.

    I don't pay retail for AEs (or anything for that matter).

    Does anyone know where I could hunt for these at a discount?
