    Am having trouble accessing the sites you reference. Might want to edit them so we can click on.

    For an interview, I prefer the cap-toe, although the Polo would probably be a more versatile shoe, better suited for casual. Depending on the interview, though, you might consider black.

    i have linked them in my first post - don't know how to go back and link them in the original poll.

    as for black for an interview, i have a couple of b-school interviews. some recommend business casual. those are the ones i had these shoes in mind for.

    for the more formal ones, i have a pair of ae's that i recently bought.

    Then I would go with the Polos.

    B-school interviews? As a recent MBA grad let me strongly suggest a suit unless specifically told otherwise.

    I would keep the Polos. I like Moreschi but this particular model looks too stubby and squared off in the toe, and the brogueing does not really go with the character. I'm also not a fan of the Polo's styling, but I have several pair of these Italian-made RL Polo shoes and they are well constructed, use good leathers, and are very comfortable. Just be sure to order them 1/2 size larger than your usual size.

    i have both shoes sitting here - tried on both and liked the polo. the moreschi seemed to be better constructed though so was unsure.

    I have those Moreschis and like them a lot. They are better constructed than any of my non-English Polo shoes and are extremely comfortable. They will be very easy to resole due to the half-rubber sole, which also gives them really good traction. They are kind of stubby though. You will either like/get used to that, or not.

    I'd say keep whichever one fits and feels better.
