    Those Ralph Laurens are nice shoes and colour.

    Make your budget $300 and you may have a chance at something nice. For tan you'll have to try the B&S here or Ebay but no guarantee on manufacturer. For under $200 you are unlikely to find much.

    I just got some gorgeous Adam Derrick To Boot New York balmoral wingtips at Sak's Off 5th for $199. Worth checking out.

    also I'm thinking of maybe just cap toe oxfords as well, I feel that they can be worn in a more casual attire, what do you guys think?

    I have those RL wingtips in dark brown . Beautiful shoes. Made by AE the quality is top notch. Buy them on sale. I've got mine on sale 2 months ago.

    Yep. Wait for the next RL private sale and snatch those RL wingtips for 40% off.

    should I go for the wingtips then? I want to be able to wear them with dark jeans or some pants for a casual look as well, wing tips or cap toe

    Yes, you can definitely wear them with jeans. Just sit tight a bit longer. If I remember correctly, I picked up the Darlton wingtips from RL during the private sale in Sept/Oct -- 40% off.

    Those shoes are sweet (both colors.) I would suggest looking on the Fine Pair of Shoes website. The Loakes seem to be nice and have a good variety. The downside is that you dont get to try them on. And if you really want to stick to under $200 - try Florsheim.

    If I am reading your signature correctly, you served our Country as a Marine in Iraq. If that is the case, Thank You.

    I picked up mine during the 40% off the retail plus they had weekend offer further 20% off the sale price. :slayer:

    E MacNeils retail for $335 in the tan calf. They should be under $300 on sale.

    That looks a hell of a lot like the AE players shoe I'm wearing right now.

    Was offered on sale for $199 by nordstrom
