Seems like very good advice
Youre off to a great start Id say. dont shy away from jeans, but get a nice, dark denim pair--trim or classic fit. Not relaxed, baggy. For your shoes, get a pair of brown shoes for the other pair.

I don't think you'll have a problem with them breaking down, but if you do just wear them on weekends and to parties. There are a lot worse things to own than a pair of nice...
No one on this board is going to advise you to buy black chinos. Ever. In any situation. Truly one of the worst things to build a wardrobe off of.
