That's sort of iffy, its definately "more" casual. But that also paints it into "too" casual, where as the captoe blucher boot under a nice pair of slacks is more than wearable in a formal setting, particularly if you take a few minutes to polish it up. And then if you wear it a few weeks with out polishing it they would take on a nice amount of distressed appearance.
Follow it up with a nice brushing and polish and bam.. Back to a dressy appearance.
I have some brown chukka plain toes I use in that manner, great with jeans, but I wore them yesterday to work with a quick shine up.
I think he made the correct choice.
