    Does anyone know of such a shoe without going bespoke?

    Thanks

    What's your budget? Off the top of my head, G&G Connaught, Bespoke England has them in Dark Brown on the TG73 last.

    Austerity Brogues? Quite a few of them about - C&J Tavistock I think though may be discontinued and Vass (I have a pair, very nice).

    I am guessing that you are searching for an "austerity brogue," which is made by a number of makers. Most notable, perhaps, is the Edward Green Beaulieu.

    I guess I'm looking for something around the Alden/AE price range, but anything more expensive just means I have to save up a bit more...

    Yes, an austerity brogue fits the bill exactly, I just wasn't familiar with the proper term so searching the forum wasn't turning up results.

    Thanks again,

    PS for anyone else looking, here's another thread looking for something similar: http://www.styleforum.net/t/286726/mid-priced-austerity-brogues

    Gravati -- my easiest wearing shoe and quite affordable (relative to some of the other mentioned above)

    If you want something relatively affordable, take a look at Allen Edmonds Ithaca. Not as good as their regular shoes, but it might be worth it for the price.

    There are many nice austere wingtips, but the nicest I have seen are the 104's by St. Crispins or the connaught by G and G. I have attempted to attach a picture below. If I failed, you can go to the leather soul website. See below:

    I'm not sure. I'll see if I can find out. They seem to be a staple item because I see them all the time in the Gravati section of the boutique department store that I bought them originally.

    Please keep me posted. The fact that it is a blucher style makes it even more interesting imo. The only problem I have with Gravati is that they don;t carry enough small sizes...Thanks
