http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.%C2%AE-Chukka-Field-Boots/614H,default,pd.html?dwvar_614H_Color=BRWN&contentpos=52 These are goodyear welted, yeah? From researching on SF, the most likely case is they are made by Loake, but I can't find any chukka boots on loakes website.

I mean honestly, I think it would look fine when worn (Sean Connery did it in some of the bond films after all). Much in the same way I think a sleeker plain toe derby would. Neither is going to look absurd when done well, I would just kind of like one true black, plain-toe oxford when I want to up the formality a bit
Upon closer inspection, those are actually the Fifth Avenue, not Park Avenue. However they are both made on the 5 last anyhow (i.e. they fit the same). All that said, They are not TTS in my opinion, but it depends on your feet. Everyone's are different. They run, as a general rule, somewhat narrow and a bit on the long side.
