    Hello Everybody,

    This is my first post on this awesome forum!

    I'm looking for a Fred Astaire style dark brown suede oxford, either brogue, semi-brogue or with a plain toe cap. My budget is maximum $500 AU, hopefully $400 AU. These Church's seem like the best option:

    However, I'm a bit concerned that the English soles may be a bit hard and that the sole and heel will be a bit too raised for me. I'm more used to Italian style loafers like Fratelli Rossetti. Looking at this picture of Fred, it seems his soles are much thinner than a typical Goodyear welted construction,

    Does anybody have some recommendations for a more sleekly soled dark brown suede oxford within my price range? I am about a 7 UK fitting, at little wide but not particularly.

    Also, does anybody know where I can find yellowy/gold laces?

    Thanks for your help!!!
