AE Park Avenue or AE Fifth Avenue i need a new shoe for the office (with charcoal, grey, navy trousers, maybe even some raw denim), but that i can also dress up with a grey suit or something along those lines Either of those shoes would work with the grey suit, but they are too formal to wear with raw denim. They'll be 'okay' with the odd trousers you mention, although technically you want an open-laced shoe for the odd trousers. If you're most often going to be dressing below the level of a suit, I'd recommend buying a brown open laced shoe that's classic and nice enough to pair with the suit. That way you can wear it with raw denim and the trousers--and still pull it off with a suit. AE has some models that fit the bill, but I'd check the B&S boards and Ebay before buying AE at retail. AE is ubiquitous and can typically be found for at least half MSRP if you look around a bit.
