I have to wear tan chinos/khakis and polos or sport shirts a lot for work. The company I work for prefers that we don't wear suits or odd jackets. It's my understanding that a blucher would be most appropriate for this type of attire (simple plain toe blucher or something like that).
Problem is, I can't find many bluchers that appeal to me. I like balmorals and prefer their sleeker look. Can I wear bals with khakis and a shirt (no jacket)? I'm not talking plain toe or (plain/no brogue) cap toe. I'm talking bals that are semi-brogue/full-brogue (cap toe or wingtip, not full wing -- does not appeal to me), maybe unstructured or distressed/waxed type leathers -- maybe double outsole or rubber sole (but not thick lug sole).
Are any of these okay (no okay) with tan chinos and a sport shirt? (I own these)
AE McClain Wingtip (bal full brogue) in Merlot
AE VanNess cap toe (bal quarter brogue) in Chili
AE Strand cap toe (bal semi brogue) in Walnut
AE Clifton cap toe (blucher quarter brogue) in Burgundy
Cheap Italian full-brogue wing tips in tan burnished/distressed (unlined)
Cheap Italian full-brogue cap toe in light/medium brown (unlined)
Thanks in advance. All these were purchased within the last month or so as I've just recently developed an appreciation/understanding of good quality shoes. I've been lurking around the forums for the past two months. Just recently registered, so I'm a noob -- please be gentle...
