    $50

    I would bite for $50-60 after shipping, but paying more than $100-125 for moccasins from Bruno Magli seems a bit steep. Reasonable quality loafers can often be found at discounters like Century 21 or even during the periodic fire sales on STP (who will periodically stock Magli).

    When you will be wearing these, for work or casual? While its hard to tell, im not impressed for the price. If you are looking for something casual, id say go with a brown boot, its a lot more stylish and has an edge to them..
    heres some options:

    Yikes! Those shoes are all hideous. Not advice to be taken. Not to mention, four posts and three links to what, I'm assuming, is a company with which you are intimately connected.

    Nice looking! But overpriced, I think.

    WSW, I love your Avatar! Maybe if you're a 50yr old with pleated Khakis and bellowing button up dress shirt to boot otherwise pass.

    Kenneth Cole shoes are crap. I saw the Magli's at century 21 this weekend at $199, but there were a pair of burnished Adam Derricks for the same price that looked better with a blue suit. Plus, the Magli's had a rubberized "leaf" style bottom, and I typically prefer pressed leather. But in general, Magli's are great... every pair I've had have lasted a long time and have goten better looking with age/re-soling.
