Optical White for me. I actually PREFER my optical white chucks to be a bit grimed up. IMHO they look way better when scuffed up a bit than brand spaking new.

I recently bought a pair in natural white. They're not nearly as yellowish as a few pictures I just looked at online.

They look great now that I've got them beat up a bit.

I just won a bid on a pair of John Varvatos natural white slip ons... can't wait till they get here.

Mine were optical white but not anymore due to the dirt. I like them much better when they get dirty.

I bought dark brown for winter but can't make myself wear them. Seems wrong for them not to be white or black.

personally I think that the off white is the better way to go. IMO it will go with more things and not look so "new" like the bright white ones. I think the bright white would be better as a spring/summer shoe.

As many have said the white ones get really dirty and look better that way, but I still think I am one of the only people on here who opts for both.

I would wear both, but at least when they're new I think that the Optical White ones are the footwear equivalent of a startlingly over-whitened smile.

Go with the "white" ones if hes a fan of dr who, because then he can say he has the exact same shoes as the 10th doctor has. optical white if he like a more brighter colored shoe.

True white Chucks remind of some Payless Shoe Source steez.
