Every manufacturer has brown in their line-up, but very few in my opinion have a rich brown - the kind that gets better with age. Do you have any suggestions on some brands that have a nice brown in their line-up, both for dress and casual (loafer)?

I would say any of the respected shoemakers. Edward Green, Crockett & Jones, Gaziano & Girling, Alden, John Lobb...

You probably want a shoe with a crust finish, they tend to age faster and have a certain kind of "time-spanning" quality to the leathers.
