I think it looks fine but not worn as a daily norm...I see quite a few rockabilly guys wearing spectators with cuffed jeans and I used to wear the combo quite a bit, but I think spectators look better with a proper trouser, as the combo can make one look like a dorky late 90s revival swing dancer. Plus I wouldnt want indigo stains from dry denim on the white suede portion of your Barker Blacks

I think your upcoming brown BB's will look better with jeans.

you'd fit right in with all the boppers and rockabilly guys in tokyo.

I remember going out to Yoyogi Park in Harajuku on sundays to check out the rockabilly crews and their bop circles! I have a few friends here in LA that are Japanese rockabilly ex-pats....and one of my Tokyo friends, Jack of Jack's Vintage in Shibuya, comes out to LA a few times a year. I heard they don't do the sunday free-for-all concerts at Yoyogi anymore...?

you can't play amplified music in the park. but they still dance (don't mind the picture on the left):

awesome pics! thanks for sharing that...i remember one time a salaryman walked into one of the dance circles and started doing his own lil jig, to the amusement of the rockers, then went off on his merry way after a couple bars of Elvis played. Nice to see they are still keepin on...

Being that those are BB's as far as I'm concerned you can wear them with anything

I've been thinking about spectators in brown/off-white to pair with jeans.

Anyone making something like these?

Those Barker Blacks are lovely! I've walked my the shop a number of times, but never gone in. Now I have something to do this weekend.

There's a store in W. LA called Remix that specializes in vintage repro shoes, mostly for women (god knows my gf has enough pairs) but also some men's, including a brown/white spectator. They're pretty enough, and a good purchase at around $150

Nice Barker Black shoes. I would wear them myself.
