Men's Shoes

Two Questions:

1)  I am about to buy some blucher mocassins.  Where should I be looking?

2) I have two questions.   I am in need of both loafers and some dress shoes to wear with a suit.  Are Bass Weejuns still the default penny loafer or are there better ones out there that are worth the extra money?  Who makes the best lace-ups for dress?  And does it matter what color I should buy to wear with a Navy or Charcoal suit?

For consideration:

Men's Dress Shoes
  • Lace-ups and Loafers (Penny, Horsebit, Belgians, Tassels, etc.).

Men's Casual Shoes

  • Bluchers and Camp Mocs
