Would you wear the Inverness with denim? @parkman24
Would anyone wear any shoes on the 82 last with denim or is that last too elegant for denim?
To me it's not a question as to if I would/could wear an Inverness style shoe(full brogue oxford)with denim versus...given the multitude of better options, why would I? What advantage is there stylistically in pairing a formal shoe with casual jeans versus say a tassel loafer, chelsea boots, chukkas, derbies, etc?
^^^^ exactly. A derby boot such as the galway with denim over an oxford. The boots draw the eye without the observer asking himself where your suit went. Amazingly enough, I still don't have a pair for myself yet....oh wel,, there's next season.... Edited by justonemore - 2/26/16 at 8:49am
I think you can make the doak galway with mink suede on 82 last work very well with business casual - definitely not suits. Oxfords might be tricky to wear with jeans, but I think some work... However, those shoes are best with the business casual/formal wear :)
