Custom White's Boots ... Thoughts? - Page 140

I agree with Crosswound on Whites.  I have a relatively new pair of SDs and love them.  They look great with denim.  And sure, they would look better than some of the crappy beat up shoes some people wear to the office.  But, they just simply do not look as good as my AE Leeds, Greyson or Strands shoes.  They just don't - not with chinos.  They're stylish work boots but the form factor is still a work boot form factor.  Great with jeans but not business casual, much less full business.  For casual Friday when jeans are allowed where I work, I'll wear them and they look great.  I just think there are much better choices that look better with chinos/slacks.

 

Edit:  by the same point, my Leeds would look very odd with denim so I wouldn't wear them that way.  My McTavish shoes would look odd with a 3-piece suit so I wouldn't wear them that way.

White’s dose make a “Dress” boot though, it’s called the Dress Packer.

tigerpack— you could totally go for the western businessman look and rock a dress packer with almost anything. Just saying…

I think White's can look great with denim or chinos and the like...I don't think I'd ever pair them with a suit though. Just can't imagine that looking appropriate really. If anybody tries it and pulls it off, be sure to post some pics...would love to see myself proven wrong.

You can certainly wear White's SDs with chinos.
I regularly wear my natural CXL SDs with slim olive and dark brown chinos and they amazing.
Admittedly, my wardrobe of chinos is less dressy - left field, epaulet, wolf vs. goat, taylor stitch, west is dead...

"Dress packer" just sounds so wrong.

So far this conversation is mostly speculation, let’s get some pictures and see how they look in real life. I’m still partially on the fence about to what extent SDs or other white’s could be dress shoes, but I am certainly finding this to be a fascinating topic. This is sort of an uncharted territory. Though this will be an unconventional look, can it still be pulled off in style?

 

Who can rock the industrial chic?

 

Can we be both rugged and refined?

 

Do whites as dress shoes look wrong or just like more beefy and unique dress shoes?

 

Bring on the pics!

A pair of White's is more than enough for entry

Cheers guys. I need a hobby other than leather jackets and boots! ( or at least that's what my wife tells me!)

Totally and completely off subject but tomorrow I meet with John Chapman for a personal fitting (if you recognize the name you can understand why I'm so stoked!)

Ok back to Whites!!
