    Not to sidetrack, but the boot version of those Florsheims look nice! http://www.florsheim.com/shop/style/14098-200.html

    If you're okay with buying used, how about some made in the US old Florsheim Imperial, Hanover or Nettleton? For $150 you can get yourself a pair that would be in excellent used condition or even NOS. Heck, I've seen shell go for less.


    Vintage Florsheim Imperial, Hanover, Nettleton >>>>>>>AE IMO.

    Ive got a pair of Cole Haans, and while definitely not AE quality they aren't crap either. $125 or less is a pretty fair price for the higher end CHs.

    speaking of ptb, just got my AE kenilworth and they got that bowing issue as mentioned on AE. Too bad because I like the burnished brown, but the issue is unflattering.

    @Kenneth - Yeah, yeah, yeah. I have five pairs of AEs so I'm very familiar with their quality. However, I don't have infinite stockpiles of cash. I would, at this point, rather spend less than $150 on a pair of shoes and use the money I saved by not buying AEs on something else.

    Certainly, the shoes suggested aren't of the same quality as an AE, no one is suggesting that and the prices reflect that. But to be fair, I think it sort of depends on what the OP is looking for, an every day wear type of shoe or an augment to similar shoes.

    I would strongly wave people away from Bostonian, Cole Haan, Stafford, and the lesser Florsheims. Pay the extra few bucks for the AE quality, man. You'll be happy you did.

    Apparently you can get the AE Kenilworth from Amazon for under $200 if you sign up for their shoes newsletter.

    I know they're not plain toe, but these could be a steal if they're anything like the Stafford Brown Wingtips....

    Okay, $160 instead of $150, but they look nice.

    I bet you can find a pair of the Kenilworth's in your size for that amount on Ebay.

    Bass is far below $150 and mine have held up well. They have a pretty broad range of colors in suede.


    I'd definitely check out Cole Haan and Johnston Murphy sales right now...

    If you're looking on the casual side check out Sebago Salems. Won't go with a suit. I think Sebago makes an amazing quality shoe for the money.


    Should be able to find Cole Haan's (colton maybe?) at that price point on sale.
