    For what purpose/situation? What else do you have?

    I can't see #2, the page isn't working. #3, I'm not really a fan as shown (those pictures are bad and the color is off), but with some antiquing I think those would be very impressive. #1 are pretty normal looking, nice but very sedate. #4 too hybrid or something. It's like the Andy/Mantellassi loafer toe on a derby. Could be nice, but I'm not amazed.

    Overall, of the three, #3.

    If you must have a black shoe, the second one is EG and will probably sell for a bargain price. My favorite is the last one, though, the dark brown Santoni. The two are very different shoes, however. #2 (the EG for RLPL) is more formal and appropriate for wear with a suit, whereas #4 (the Santoni) is a great casual shoe for wear with almost anything except a suit.

    I think I agree with thinman. I take it you're aware that there's a full size spread (10.5 - 11.5) among those shoes? Or did you just link to the easiest pic?

    Linked to easiest pic. Lazy. [​IMG]

    Anyways, these would be for a business casual work environment, but be paired with a suit every now and again.
