Very country - nice casual color to them.

Of course, you'd wear them around and hear "nice dress shoes" a lot.

Like when I wear a SC and dress pants at work and hear "I really like your suit"

:/

JR:  I like those, but have always thought C&J does this pebble grain/danite niche better than anyone else:

 

Pembroke – Tan

Well for working with a lot of rural Illinois clients as I do I think I'll always need to have a bit of country to my attire.  Most of my shoes are more classic dress except for one pair of burgundy longwings and it would be nice to have a couple in that rotation.

Definitely something to consider as I don't have any C&J's.  Thanks!

Are cuffs on suit trousers frowned upon?  Specifically for a heavier weight wool and a 2" cuff.  I thought 2" would work well with my stature (6'2")

Around here, 2" seems to be almost a standard, even among the more vertically challenged. At 5' 7"+, I'm happy with 1.75". At your height 2" is a no-brainer. And yes, especially w/suit trous.

I'm 6'2" and I have a 2" cuff on all my trousers. It's not more or less appropriate for any situation, except for (semi)formalwear.

Would this be considered a "versatile" sport coat?

Obviously not in a navy blazer, or even solid gray sort of way, but would this go with a variety of different pants & tie combos? Seems like a fairly sedate colorway and small scale pattern. Does the green make it less versatile than say a brown or other color gun club check?

What patterns and colorways are considered to be among the most versatile?

I would like to be associated with the words of this speaker.

So, speaking of country casual, these came today. They look great, but are not what I ordered. Am I right in assuming that these will not be as versatile as the shoes I ordered and send them back? I've already contacted howard yount and they are going to make it right should I decide to send them back.

Perhaps more versatile since they'd look even better with denim. Really, though, imagine what you'd wear with the shoes and then decide whether you'd wear the boots in the same context.

The biggest limit to its versatility is that you could really only wear it a few times a month, so it really depends on the state of your wardrobe (if you have the staples down, then yeah, I can see a lot of blue shirt brown trou working well there). Now that other navy jacket on sale at NMWA....that's tasty.

 

Rudals, this is what a 3 button should look like in terms of fit:

Not sure if it is more versatile (nor is it any less), but it's more complete. Pebble grain blucher with heavy broguing is very country. That it's a boot completes that picture. On just about every outfit where the shoe version is going to look good, the boot is going to look better. Keep it.

Luv, they're keepers, you will not regret it as you will get so much more from that in a boot. No downside.

If they're size ~11 and u decide against them lmk. I think they're quite nice looking.
