I decided that I eventually want invest in a pair of split-toe bluchers for those less formal occasions. I really like the Carmina split-toe taylor as sold by epaulet.com but i'm curious what other options there are in the world of men's dress shoes? My budget is in the $500-600 range and while I may end up buying the Carmina split-toes i'd like to know if there are any other brands that offer a similar looking shoe at similar price points? I know Alden makes the NST blucher but I think it looks a little clunky and i'd like something more chiseled. Any ideas?
