Hello everybody! I've been reading a lot of stuff on dress shoes and I'm going to buy my first pair in the next month.
You read many and very different opinion among the internet and you can still end up confused.

Beside the brands i can find here in Milan that are probably not popular across the Pond, I would like to know your opinions on the following:
- Carlos Santos
- Barker
- Doucal's
- Shoepassion.com

I don't care for Santos patina service (will ask for little or no patina at all applied).
I've read many different opinions on Barker and Doucal's, people talking about different quality levels.

I can find these 3 at a similar price point, while Shoepassion can be higher unless we get big sales.
