    Thanks for the feedback, guys. Truly.

    Do you have any suggestions for some brands that would have a good brown leather oxford around $200? I know AE is the preferred brand of just about everyone, but some guidance for something that a notch below would be really helpful.

    You can try AE factory seconds by calling their outlet store. Factory seconds are shoes with minor imperfections. Otherwise: http://dappered.com/2012/05/the-best...s-under-200-2/

    DSW would also be a good place to look. It might be a good time to try some sub $200 double monks.

    I personally think you'd be fine with those shoes you posted (the walnut-ish bluchers). Look, we're talking about a partially-beached wedding here. Unless you are looking to fill a hole in your shoe arsenal going forward, and have the extra cash to spare, then I bet you will be just fine if you wear those. They look VERY similar, IMO (not *identical - don't call me out on that), to the AE Kenilworth (just the lighter hued version than most folks around here have and love). And although yes, a more formal oxford (closed-lace) AE option would most likely be a better choice and a better shoe altogether, I don't think you have to go buy some new ones just for this wedding. My two cents. If you're looking for new shoes anyway, then of course, go big and spend away! That's the fun part. Either way, enjoy yourself at the event.

    So after looking at a bazillion shoes, I settled on order a pair of these from 6 pm: http://www.6pm.com/to-boot-new-york-...fcTest=mat%3A1

    I'm not sure if I'm going to attempt them with this suit, but I kinda got lured by the discount and figure I can't go wrong with the general versatility as an extra bullet in my chamber.

    Thanks for everyone's help.

    Did you pay $210 for them? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that's not much of a discount. That MSRP of $350 is a bit inflated. You can regularly find TBNY shoes at Saks Off 5th for well under $200. I got a pair of suede brogues for $140.

    I love double monks. Great color, too.
