I am looking for a sleek-looking pair of black cap-toe oxfords, and I found
these Bruno Magli "Manes" at Century 21 for $200.

Does somebody know how do they compare to e.g. AE quality-wise? Are they
Goodyear-welted? (They have leather sole covered with rubber.) Would you consider this a fair price? (They have minor scratches which I think can be polished-out.)

quality wise, AE is better than the main-line BM (the ones between 300-400, like the one you linked to). I have both, a lot more AE than BM, and the only reason I had BM was because they had a chelsea that I was able to get for a very low price. but AE is a lot better.
