An "all-week" shoe as in, you're going to wear them every day of the week?

Bad idea.

They fit pretty tight around the front of the foot,they're not to small but still going to get them "widened" (whats the english word for it?) if I decide to keep them.

Nah, expressed me a bit clumsy. Just meant I would be using them as a "normal" shoes instead of sneakers.

There are not real rules, but a few guidelines should be:
1) the darker the jeans the better.
2) the less formal the dress shoe the better - blucher style, more rounded toe
3) brown generally better than black (I could go either way on this as long as the first two are followed)

I think he looks fine.

Thoughts on some black shell chukkas with jeans (raw indigo)? Looking at these: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index...re_Toe_170.htm

I want something simple that can go with jeans but also dress up. I've already got a pair of color #8 high boots that I like; but for my next pair, I'm wondering if a sleek black low boot would be a good addition.

Grenson dessert boots. These are okay for jeans, right? The toe is really pointed for a db, but they are otherwise pretty casual.

look like clown shoes imo, need heavier boots for that size of a foot

Timely thread for me. I have a pair of whiskey longwings for sale in B&S but haven't posted pics because it would kill me to sell them. What is your opinion of these with jeans? I bought them basically to wear exclusively with jeans and cords but when I wear them with jeans(all raw) I think maybe they are too light colored. Thoughts?

Really? I'm a US size 10 so pretty average.

It's just that it looks like your foot must be flat as a pancake! I admit that looks pretty weird.

Hmm..should I return them? The leather is awesome. Here's an overhead view.

Those Grensons with those jeans, not a good look. Would probably work better with a smaller leg opening, here's a couple of pics from Grenson Kirks (same elongated shape than the DBs) and suede DBs for reference. But you're probably better off returning them.

Those look bizarre. Are they trying to out-Paul Smith Paul Smith or something?

I just picked these up, should go nicely with either dark or light jeans...
