Thanks! For that price they're worth a try.

I really need some Khakis as well but I just don't know what brand to go with or how to incorporate those into my style.(Feel free to suggest some!) I am really excited about the Wolverine 1ks and my 501 Denim that I won't ever have to wash with some Solid Color T's and some nice Cardigans and sweaters.

 

However, I don't want to have to wear my W1Ks every single day(I wouldn't mind but I don't want to wear them out to fast) and the only other shoe I have right now are some Converse Chuck Taylors( I know I am overhauling my Wardrobe and it is LONG overdue!) and I don't really understand the shoe game yet..and what to wear with what!

 

So I guess what I need from you guys are some suggestions on what kind of shoes I can rock with my denim and khakis in a conservative rugged gentleman type of way! :)

 

 

 

 

Your questions rely heavily on your budget. If you are on a low to moderate budget, I suggest Docker Alphas. You can get these in khaki or in colors similar to khaki. An alternative would be to check out your local H&M.  They always have an assortment of chinos usually priced around $30.

 

For shoes, you need something completely opposite of your Chucks but you can't go overboard and wear something too dressy with jeans. I think something like Walk Over Derby Shoes would work nicely with jeans and denim. If Walk Overs are too expensive find something like these.

Looking for suggestions on slim fitting pants/trousers that are not chinos/khakis - for a casual leaning business casual workplace. I have several shades of khakis but don't feel right wearing them in the colder months. I want them to be versatile enough to wear them outside of work.

Price < $250

I'm 5' 6", 155 lbs, short-asian legged with a big butt.

Can't speak towards the Ciro Lendinis, but I just picked up a pair of the Thompson shoes. It's another one of those "no-name" Italian brands on Yoox. For the $120 I paid, I could have done much, much worse for shoes. They may not be Aldens, but they're completely leather (no rubber) with a fairly slim profile. For the few times I've worn them over the past week, I've liked them.

What is the best brand for high quality skinny jeans?  Nudies look amazing but they don't have a physical store in NYC....fit is ideal as it appears online though and I'm looking for something similar...thanks.

there are a dozen different "best brands." It depends on the fit you want and your budget. basically any brand from here will be high-quality, and you also might want to check out APC and of course Dior Homme. And while there's no Nudies store in NYC, there are 10 stores that stock Nudies, according to their website.

no such thing as best, go for what best fits you...

i personally like nudie slim jim and average joe fits. lots of people like naked and famous but dont forget good old levis they are always dependable.

if you want nudie just go of measurements, i am a 32 and wear a 33 in nudie slim jim, avg joe = 32 for me

I finally got my very own ToJ Double Rider '10. Now I need some good spring and summer footwear to go with the jacket.

 

What boots go well with a black ToJ Rider jacket?

 

Edit:

 

Okay sinnedk. I'll wear light blue and black jeans. I like dressy/wild.

 

Here are some boots I'm considering:

 

1.

 

 

 

2.

 

 

 

3.

 

 

 

 

I'm open to other suggestions.
