    What Milosh said. Punchcap oxford first. Those Vass are beauties.

    I can't imagine only having one pair of dark brown shoes though, so one should also have a derby.

    Great suggestions so far, guys. Thanks. Pls keep them coming. I'm leaning toward the punched cap oxford or a plain cap oxford. But Teddie's suggestion of a derby, combined w/ woolymammoth's pics, have me looking that way.

    I have not met mine yet, probably will have to go bespoke to get the blackest of brown [or the right patina] possible. One formal and one casual as far as styling, probably. Will remember to post once I have some.
    What are your ideas for the two pairs?

    Hmmm, on second glance, I just noticed the punching along the toe cap on those Vass Adelaides could've been more centered between the 2 rows of stitching...
    Ya, that's not good.

    I believe it was Doc that said that the RLPL McKay (EG Asquith) in Dk. Oak on the 888 is perhaps the perfect (brown) shoe: http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/8062/12020801pr.jpg

    My first EG...and still the best IMO.

    Regards.

    +1 on the Asquith. A very close second is the EG Dover in dark oak on the 606 last.
