I just bought a nice pair of brown wing tipped oxfords and I want to wear them with jeans. Is it ok to wear them with faded jeans or is it only ok to wear them with solid color jeans?

Can you wear faded jeans with dress shoes?post #1 of 1711/28/12 at 10:11pmThread Starter

+1 and Welcome!post #5 of 1711/29/12 at 6:54ampost #6 of 1711/29/12 at 7:03ampost #7 of 1711/29/12 at 7:11amI think the inherent casual nature of faded and distressed jeans calls for an inherently casual shoe. Doesn't mean they have to be crappy shoes, but I'd stick to loafers of the penny and driving variety. You want to look relaxed, not like you spilled something on your work pants and had to grab something off the top of your hamper.post #8 of 1711/29/12 at 7:27ampost #9 of 1711/29/12 at 7:42ampost #10 of 1711/29/12 at 9:06ampost #11 of 1711/29/12 at 11:38amThread Starter
The shoe I own is almost identical to this one (minus the dark spot on the tip): https://s3.amazonaws.com/assets.svpply.com/large/1797325.jpg?1352810012
Also I'm not talking about heavily faded jeans, but more like these with a light fade: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41l0r+p8FjL._SX342_.jpg
And yes I would wear the whole thing with a dress shirt.
What do you think?post #12 of 1711/29/12 at 4:52pmpost #13 of 1711/29/12 at 5:05pmThread Starterpost #14 of 1711/29/12 at 6:48pmQuote:
That 'dark spot on the tip' is what we call a patina on the toebox. You can easily combine these pants with these shoes with or without a dress shirt. Just don't walk near Gnatty8.
