    Ive been slowly acquiring pieces of my wardrobe for the business environment and have decdided to add another pair of shoes to the rotation. The environment isnt overly formal so i could possibly get away with suede but probably not chukkas if that makes any sense.

    I have a pair of black shoes (brogues) and have picked up some dark brown carmina's (punched captoes). I was wondering what people thought would be the most versatile colour/type after that? I was thinking a pair of dark burgundy? Maybe even a boot?

    I really like the look of the G and G wigmore but im not sure if my budget can stretch that far,. Anyone with opinons? Was hoping for around the $500 mark.

    And I tend to wear a lot of medium brown.

    Edit: After the post below I realize walnut/cognac is probably a more apt description than medium brown.

    Burgundy. Goes great with almost any shade of grey pants.

    I prefer a deep oxblood to that most often described as burgundy or bordeaux, which can often be entirely too 'red' for my liking. I have a pair of Vass oxblood double monks inbound at present.

    A medium brown, such as walnut and the like, would also make a nice addition to the rotation.

    1) Dark Brown (since it's probably the most versatile)
    2) Black
    3) Burgundy
