I wear shell PTB's all time with jeans...
I don't know if it was the color or what? I did have a more blue denim on when I put them next to it. Maybe I should try something darker. Maybe I should have gone lighter with the edge trim as well... These won't get anymore formal than a pair of khakis for work, but if I don't end up liking them with jeans I will sell them. I haven't put them on yet and I'd rather not till I make my mind up.

With all the discussion around park avenue hating, Here is a pair of park avenues I have for sale that I hand polished.

It would never have occurred to me to question whether those go with jeans.

I certainly don't consider "exotic" leather shoes for my wardrobe, but I can appreciate those AE's for their rarity.  Those were quite expensive as well.  They made some in genuine Alligator a little over a year ago as a Webgem, and if memory serves they were in the price range of a pair of John Lobbs, though I don't remember the exact price.

 

EDIT: Just found them... They were $2,400. :uhoh:

Yes, I think so.

With dark denim and my shirt tucked, I'd definitely wear them. As you get more casual on top, I might switch to a different pair of shoes but I'd say go for it!

Maybe I'll try a differnt wash jean and also my raw denim. If not...someone who wears an 8D in the 1 last will have a second chance at some cappuccino!!

I see what you're saying and that makes sense. I was looking at them referencing only the jeans. Maybe the whole look will pull it together.

I hear ya.  I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between those and the plastic ones I probably see all the time though.  Although the ones I usually see are purple, so nevermind.  :lol:

 

I'm patiently waiting for two of my newest AE to add to my collection and it's killing me!!!!!  

 

- webgem Merlot Macneil

-Mto brown shell player

Not sure what the sentiment is around here for wearing walnut Strands with jeans...but I decided today was the day I'd take the puppies on their maiden voyage.
