    Two choices:

    Alden black calfskin $345
    Brooks Brothers Peal & Co. $321 courtesy of the current sale at BB.

    all things equal, i'll probably go with the peal. I like the last better, and the strap of the alden monks is a little narrow for my taste.

    but either is acceptable.

    The non-wingtip version.

    NoVaguy echoes my tastes here. I'd go with the BB, non-wing tip model.

    Of the two, definitely the BB (though neither quite does it for me).
