Came across this company recently, might be worth a look MEERMIN - Inicio. The Grensons both look great too
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.
These are my two leading contenders:
Grenson Kirk - £175
Grenson Jasper - £175
Russell & Bromley have some pretty tasty looking oxfords, I think they're Barker. Probably a bit too formal perhaps.
Get those brown monks!!! They're lush!

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.
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.
