Blue suede chukkas - Page 2

Washed jeans...

The Sand trickers would be nice. I think the blue version is abit too dark and I feel not as versatile. They are also unlined, which I have experience is not so good as far as shape and durability of the suede goes. At that price without VAT refunds, it would be abit difficult to justify.

The Lodgers is still available in a Tan colour but the price is a little more than the Trickers and if you own any Chukkas in brown, it would seem a little repetitive.

Blue Suede is difficult to match. I've been successful pairing it with Chinos and Corduroy trousers. Dark jeans only works if they are cuffed so there is a distinctly visible break.

I am getting one of those, probably a rrl from ebay. Unlined chukkas in sand would look great them.

Raw stiff jeans and heavy boots are hardly suitable for the Indian summer e

Two days ago I was also considering buying one of these. I ended up ordering 2 Drakes scarves from the same source. I have a pair of cheap (about 70 USD) blue suede crepe sole from Massimo Dutti. They are versatile if you have purchased cotton Incotex/Mabitex pants in all colours. I have a pair of Tricker's derbys in a similar last and find them too clunky. And I would like the Lodger boot with leather soles, like these

Blue chukkas are great. I have gray ones that I wear all the time.

I have blue suede bluchers from Alden and really like them. They're more subtle than one would think, and They're a nice casual shoe. I dint know if I'd wear them with blue jeans though - too much blue. Though sometimes I wear them with navy chinos so what the hell do I know!

Sudden urge to wear these with shorts for some unknown reason.

blue suede is easy in summer ... wear outdoors, near the ocean, with white / stone / any light chino look great broken in not so good for fall or winter

My Loake suede desert boots look quite good with jeans and cost less than either of your suggestions.

Alden via Epaulet.
Great with white (except for the fact they bleed blue).

Thanks everyone for your comments. I have dropped the idea since I feel they would be too matchy matchy with jeans and I was primarily buying them to wear with jeans. Both of them are available at asos.com for around 160-170 GBP with free worldwide shipping.

^^ Loake Camden ?
post #29 of 35
Yes, those are Loake 1880 Camden. Great shoes for the money ~ GBP80. However, they are a G fitting.

I prefer the second pair. Nothing like blue suede shoes and jeans
