    Light Brown lace ups

    I'm looking for a light brown (cognac walnut etc) lace up that I will be able to wear to the office and with dark jeans. I'd like to keep it under $100. My current pick would be the JCP Stafford cap toe http://m.jcpenney.com/mobile/jsp/bro...tResultIndex=+

    Thoughts?

    These from Giorgio Brutini are decent

    I have a pair and they get regular rotation with my Allen Edmonds. I wear them on bad weather days. They look decent, going well with jeans or slacks.

    How about these two? Unsure of the quality of these shoes but decent prices from a Last Call Sale:

    I think those wingtips are awesome.

    Ben Sherman is good quality for that price. The reason those are so cheap is the rather intense burnishing on the sides, toe, and heel (notice the dark, almost black color). In my opinion, it's overdone/done poorly and will just make the shoes look permanently dirty.

    Great point, I have noticed a lot of that lately and from my own experience, the burnishing always looks more severe in person.

    I remember seeing the Brutini's in person and didn't love the length. The color is a bit dark for what I'm looking for as well. I would snap buy the Ben Sherman wingtip without the burnishing.

    These from BR have good reviews and can be had for $80 with a 40% off coupon

    Also, I agree about the Brutini's. They look good in pictures, but way too long in person. I returned mine.

    Don't buy any of those. Check out Allen Edmonds and order some seconds from the AE Shoebank when they have their sale on Friday. Here's a thread with the sale details:
