Maybe it's also a bit of a cultural thing. I think americans have a less liberal way of thinking about denim than europeans. This is probably due to the fact that jeans were born - in a large scale anyway - in the US (?) and therefore has a lot of historical and cultural connotations that it doesn't have in Europe.

Possibly. On casual Friday everyone wears jeans and then most people wear their dressy shoes with them. 999/1000 it looks bad. As a general rule, it's easier to say no to jeans as a rule. If you understand the rule, then you can be the exception that breaks it. But I think it's a good rule to have in general.

I always think where jeans may look okay with oxfords, dress pants always look better. I didn't think that was so controversial. Agree to disagree I guess.

^^ No rules without exceptions. In general I agree that Oxfords looks a bit off with Denim, but something like a Rothschild (wingtip) in like Vintage Chestnut or some sort of grain or suede will look perfectly fine with jeans. Depends on the jeans too of course, I mean there are more or less casual ones. G&G has a few styles that looks great with jeans, like Isham, Thorpe, Glencoe etc.

I echo the statements above. To me it's just 2 different worlds of formality. I wouldn't see a shoe I wore with jeans on a Friday night as the same shoe I would wear to an interview. But with the right tailored dark denim it could work but wouldn't be my first choice.

Glad to hear all sides of the argument though

^^ This is what I'm talking about, looks perfectly fine with slimmer jeans. Would not look cool with worn out baggy dad jeans.

A slim, dark Jean that is the correct length (just touching the shoe, no bunching at the bottom) looks great. Ok if your wearing a t-shirt or polo it looks a bit out of place again, stick on a loafer. But a smart look, :- dark jeans, a collar and jacket, or close fitting sweater you will always look great.

A deco with loose fitting stonewashed jeans is never going to look right so I agree with all of these comments in some respect. If you are going to wear the smartest dress shoes on the market. Make sure the rest is also smart.

It's also good enough for the guys who actually make and sell these things too. So it's good enough for me.

Hell yeah. cheers.gif

I would add that a nice looking sport shirt always works as well.
