Nothing says autumn quite like brown suede.

To that end, we thought we’d bring your attention to this Cole Haan saddle shoe. It manages to deliver a classic shape, a handsome red brick sole and a surprisingly low sticker price—which makes for quite a trifecta. We might want to swap out the laces for something a little less sneaker-y, but after that you should have a near-perfect casual shoe.

For the pricier, more genuine article, you can look up Mr. McNairy…but nobody’s perfect.
