I have a pair of patent oxfords I wear with my tux.

Strangely, I've given two pair of Ferragamos as gifts - one a patent oxford, the other a patent loafer (definitely a loafer, not a pump. Not the most attractive shoe, but it was his size and on clearance).

Worse. :) What are those, Tod's? Based on the bit of the logo I can see.

I haven't seen them in a while, but they have some sort of part on top in a navy paisley grosgrain, not tall enough to be a imitation spat. I'll have to post pictures next time he wears them.
I know Ferragamo has these which I use as they were easier to find, try, and purchase in store than the pinched bow type:

I wear a pair of black calfskin slip-ons.
Not as low cut as pumps and no bow. But the closest i could come on a budget.

I currently do not have a pair for BT but I would go for PL lace-ups or substitute a polished Oxford until I have enough funds. I still do not have enough BT events to attend that would warrant me to spend on shoes which I will wear on some occasions.

90% of the time I'm attending a Black Tie event it's out of town, and I refuse to pack a pair of shoes just for single use - especially if I'm travelling for the week. Typically I'll wear a highly polished calfskin cap toe, something that I can wear with suits the rest of the week.

No idea what brand they are,but they're hideous!
