    Simple Brown Shoe Recommendations

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a simple brown shoes for work. I like to dress in a suit, shirt and tie for work but it's not compulsory, so the usual rules don't necessarily apply. I'd like a mid-brown shoe that stands out. I'd also like it to be versatile enough to wear smart casual outside work too. Budget is 200 but I'd be delighted to spend under 100.

    Any ideas?

    These are my two leading contenders:



    Grenson Kirk - 175



    Grenson Jasper - 175

    They are beautiful, thanks for bringing them to my attention. If I can get the brown Monks in my size delivered, I will. They'll be perfect for a wedding I'm going to in July.

    Russell & Bromley have some pretty tasty looking oxfords, I think they're Barker. Probably a bit too formal perhaps.

    I have placed an order for the brown leather Monks. They are currently being made so will take 20/25 days. They will be ideal for the wedding I'm attending in July.

    Still need a simple pair of laces for work and general wear though.

    Did you get the double monks? What's the sizing like? Seriously tempted by the pebble-grain ones they've got now.

    They are beautiful and I am delighted with the sizing, they fit me just perfectly which means the 8 must be slightly small made. I am so happy with these shoes. I'll post some pics when I get a chance.

    Suit Supply also do a very nice pair, I saw them in NYC but I think you have a store in Englandshire now.

    Awesome, thanks. Will definitely order a pair when I've got a bit more cash.

    The SuitSupply ones look nice as well, but I wanted something a bit more casual, they'll be worn at most with a blazer and chinos, and often with jeans, so Meermin's grained leather ones look perfect.
