Is it ok to wear 10 Wale casually and more dressy as well?
I think it'd help if you define your definition of casual/dressy. Reason being, as a matter of conservative sartorial rules (if there are any), corduroys are for casual trousers. If your dressy means going on a movie date with the woman of your life, sure, by all means. If dressy means going to a restaurant (in America) which asks for smart casual, the 10/14 should cut it. But if your dressy means going to a cocktail reception, I wouldn't do it.
But, in this day and age, nobody really cares, unless you're horrifically out of place.
