    They're both nice. Do you want to go simple or more fashionable?

    I'm not a big fan of shoes that are one piece across the front. Without a cap or brogue detail, the plain leather makes creases more evident. That bugs me. If it won'y bother you then the Weymouth, by a mile.

    Both unacceptablle to my taste.
    They are pointy and antiqued.

    Are these to be worn exclusively with suits? These are fairly formal looking shoes.

    Personally, not a fan of medallion toe wholecuts. I had a pair of AE Weybridges, but sold them.

    If I had to choose, I'd pick the dark brown ones. A little be more versatile.

    Yes. Mainly navy, grey, and charcoal suit.

    I wouldn't buy either.
    Why not just get cap-toes or punch-caps?
    And also, you should buy a darker shoe for suits.

    I did vote for Weymouth yesterday: however, as you plan to wear the shoes with suits, I say look at other shoes, as mentioned by Loathing

    Well, these shoes will be for an informal occasion with a suit. Shopping, theatre, party, and so on. These shoes will not reach my work place or business meeting. I want something different yet elegant.

    Nothing wrong with above shoes in the work places - Ensure you have quality matching belt and the colour of the suit clothes blends well.
    They go easily with a light blue, blue, biege and checkered brown suit. Rosemoor for me.

    And when you're bored with the colour, read the Shoe Care thread on tips how to change the colour...

    I'd go with Weymouth. The visual appeal of a wholecut is that the shoe is only made of one piece of leather, so it's as simple and minimalist as you can get. The Rosemoor strikes me as an odd compromise -- not a wholecut, yet will suffer from the shortcomings of one (e.g., more easily showing creases on the toe box).
