With a good pair of boots you wont even notice that they are anything other than Oxfords until you raise your pant-leg. I had a friend who wore boots for three weeks before I realised they weren't just plain toe Oxfords.
It could be if you wear it with RTW trousers. But you can easy spot it on MTM.

I commonly wear black C& Tetburys with a suit. This may be along the lines of what the OP is talking about.

You can't tell in RTW, but can in MTM? Really? Guess it depends on how you measure and like your trouser to break...

Something that can be worn with a suit, they might be a tad bit higher than your ankle. I remember Bradley Cooper wearing something like this in the Hangover when he was wearing his suit. Anyone's help would be appreciated.

OP,

go with C&J Northcote, best bang for the buck, all the EGs are super expensive, Bodileys takes orders and it will be a 3 month wait, but totally worth it.


Now if you do want to go the expensive route there is a G&G Canterbury which is really nice but super pricey about $900. Also check Leffot, I'm sure Steven has something dressy for you, and Rider Boot co usually has some sleek things.

LMK what you end up getting, maybe you'll find something cool i havent seen...

The Allen Edmonds outlet near me has some Fifth Avenues and Daltons in my size.  They are beautiful, but I'm not quite sure where I would wear them, or what I would wear them with.  My office is business formal, so I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing them to work.  To an expensive restaurant or classy party?  With slacks and a tweed jacket?  I've never owned boots other than L.L. Bean-type winter boots, or hiking boots, so I don't know how to carve out a role for dress boots in my wardrobe!
