    DSW is a good recommendation. They have a pretty good variety if you wait for a sale.

    Don't forget to pick up shoe trees and rotate your shoes. This will extend the lives of any pairs you buy.

    EBAY for sure is a good route

    Seriously you can probably get about 6 pairs of various brands so you can figure out what last and brands fit your feet best

    eg. I paid $80 CAD for these, custom grade leather done by I believe C&J that were factory rejects(not sure why still, I believe the stitching on sole isn't perfectly aligned), worlds better than any of my AEs

    Gotcha. I follow now, thanks!

    Note to the original poster: you wrote "Oxford", which for most regular posters here means a particular kind of lace up dress shoe. For business casual you might be better off with a derby shoe. (Google these two terms and you'll see why.) The reason I point this out is that most American retailers call both types of shoe Oxfords. There's some inconsistency in the thread as a result.

    Indeed, Parisian Gentleman breaks it down even further, and notes distinctions between an oxford, a derby, and a blucher:
