Casual shoes that go with jeans and linen jacket.

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Shoes that go with jeans, oxford shirt, light colored linen or cotton jacket.
What shoes do you wear with this type of Spring and Summer outfit?

Wingtips feel a bit too dressy.
The wingtips and jeans combo also has a hint of "cowboy" to it.
Jeans and any dress shoes just don't right, in fact.

I need a slightly more casual shoe for this slightly casual outfit.
For now, I have been wearing my beater rubber soled J&M NST's with the jeans/jacket look.
Anyone have any options? Oxford buck shoes?

Leatherfoot, for my tastes, those are way too dressy for jeans. It's a clash in texture.

Trompe, I like the suggestion. That's exactly what I was thinking.
The informality of bucks correctly matches that of jeans.

Where are some good places to to pick up a pair of value suede bucks?

Something like Trompe suggested or a nice pair of chukka boots.  The loafers work as well, but if you don't like that idea then so be it.

How about saddle shoes? Like this perhaps:

Walkover's aren't too pricey ($250) and are goodyear welted:

If you get lucky on size, 6pm has a bunch on sale for sub-$200.

Gucci bit loafers. They have a new "retro" collection out right now. The heel is way too low for a proper copy of the old model, but still it is not bad. Preferably not in black though.

^^^I think Gucci took a silly pill when they designed these. I do like them in classic tan calf. But even then, suede bucks are my go-to shoe for linen, denim and OCBD

I can see the appeal of the bucks but I guess that they are very American - I have seen them very seldomly in continental Europe.

Those Gucci shoes are hideous.
Looks like SF has gone far downhill the last few years.
