If you check my posting history, you can see I'm looking for cheap, plain shoes for everyday work wear (usually with wool trousers, shirt and tie, but only sometimes with a suit). Maybe this winter I'll invest in something nicer, but for the fall I need an immediate replacement for my suede oxfords, which are hurtin'. I'm kicking myself for not taking advantage of some of the RL shoes that passed through bluefly over the summer. These brown plaintoe oxfords just popped up; they're of the "made in italy" variety. Not sure if I like the styling as much as I had on some of the other shoes, but they look alright, and with a code, the price is certainly right. My primary concern is that they're too casual for w/tie/jacket wear. Opinions?
