Thanks to some of my lovely readers, I've been actually able to track down my dream white oxfords.
I can get these very shoes but they are 496GPB (approx $740) with the commando soles. I could get them with flat soles for 305GPB (approx $450). Pricey. Which I knew they would be.
So should I be more frugal? I did order the Steve Madden Milites but they ran very very small. So I sent them back. I could order up and have a frugal option.
Today I got an email about these Robert Clergerie trompe l'oeil Jili wingtips which are interesting but still not cheap at $495 at Barneys.
Markey oxfords from ASOS. They're only $63 have a good look but a dark sole.
Here's another witty option. Not really a serious contender but unusual... What-A-Cut-Up Brogues from Anthropologie - $238
