Nice fit. I like the narrow lapels on that suit. Those shoes are way out of place though. I think it would look great with black cap toe balmorals, walnut wingtips or even maybe to a lesser extent chili split toes.

I totally agree. Actually, I think this thread has opened my mind some already as I can think of some more ways these could go with a couple different types of jacket. I think these would kill with a Sunspel navy summer polo, but I think that's as casual as they can go.
I'm guessing I can wear them like chinos, pretty much, which is why I was thinking the navy polo. I guess I could also try to pair it with a tropical wool navy blazer or linen navy blazer or some kind of loose weave button down shirt. I can't seem to think of any more versatile way to wear them.
I picked up a pair of Hickey Freeman linen pants in natural with a stiff crease. They don't seem to want to wrinkle much, fortunately. Trying to think of what I can pair these with: desert boots and a navy summer weight polo?
This pair has not seen any washings yet; just one wearing. I wonder if part of the issue could be that a 2-eye chukka is not the best shoe to pair the sock with. Maybe I would have a different outcome with a pair of oxfords that heel more to the... heel... not that these shoes were flopping around on my feet all day.
That said, I work in a laboratory so I spend a good part of my day walking around the lab space and I probably put a few miles on them today.
Wore a pair today w/ my dessert boots and noticed after one wearing a lot of the fabric is coming apart at the heels and toes. They had a lot of elastic and stayed up great, but I feel like they are not durable enough to last more than 10 wearings. It seems like the fiber length is pretty short. Anyone else care to comment or recommend a similar sock that will actually last me?
I want to grab some Meltonian shoe cream to match a pair of AE Strand in walnut and also my Brooks saddle in "honey".
Any recommendations? Lots of browns available.
