    What next?

    I already own...

    A pair of dark brown brogues
    A pair of dark brown loafers
    A pair of grey desert boots
    A pair of chocolate brown desert boots

    I'm looking for something that can be dressed up or down, much like a pair of brogues.
    I usually wear tees and casual/oxford shirts with chinos/jeans.

    I'm leaning towards another pair of brogues, this time in tan, but I'm kinda worried about the versatility of it and how I can incorporate in my day-to-day outfits.
    Much help will be appreciated!

    To me brogues are a little smarter and less versitile. I'd try a pair of chocolate brown suede chelsea boots, they're easy to dress up and down.

    I'd say you need a pair of derby's or oxford's. You have a lot of darker brown shoes already, so maybe a pair of tan/light brown or oxblood derby's. Or even a pair of matte black ones - not too shiny ones, as they're very hard to dress down.

    I would say your style is too casual for oxfords or derbies. I think you're missing a pair of leather boots (as opposed to suede, which you have some of already). Maybe some chukkas. I ordered these yesterday. Will get loads of wear out of them http://www.hudsonshoes.com/viking-2-tan.html

    a new approach to the classic brogues (from TOMS):
