CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Design-wise, I almost think it's an apple to oranges comparison, though both shoes are brogues. I see the Gravati as being more of a city-ish shoe, with it's sleeker last. The AS with it's slightly "chunky" last is more of a more casual country shoe. Depends on what you want, really. I do like some brogues that have that heaviness to them, while by the same token, I also have brogues that have sleeker lasts. I wear them on different occasions.
Agree. But the sole determines both shoes to be a "country shoe". The Gravati combining the sole to the sleek last is kind of an oxymoron to me.
I am very biased, but defintiely Gravati. I am wearing a similar pair today. Very light, very Italian, with supple leather. Can't go wrong.
Those are sharp shoes, and I like the laces.
A little off topic but, for some reason this forum seriously underrates Gravati.
Given the OP's scenario (Gravatis cost $200 more), I would get the Sargents. But the styles are pretty different. The pictured Sargents are almost casual shoes.
This surprises me. The Gravatis I have run slightly smaller than some of the other brands I own. If I had gone down a size I'd have needed baby oil and a trash compactor to get my foot into them in the mornings.
