Ideally a leather blucher-tongue or "derby" dress shoe. I'm talking the best possible combination of understated style, foot support and quality of construction. Obviously it won't be bench-made for $500 or less. In American shoes, I suppose the consensus will be Alden or Allen Edmonds. But I'm also very interested in the Italian and English shoes. There are MANY brands. What do you nominate for the finest, in a cost-effective sense?
