And remember, both the belt and shoes should be patent leather. Best worn with Sansbelt polyester double-knit pastel-colored slacks, a Banlon shirt, and a white cap.

Linen of course but consider seersucker pants or shorts. No socks!

Just a thought, and it will probably go down better in the SW&D forum, but perhaps it might go with a slim cut pair of dark denims.

No sun ,no deep south ,no sunny beaches ,no white shoes..Simple as that...

You will look a pimp ,a reject from Miami Vice or very camp if you do wear them in the wrong context......

I remeber a guy in Mayfair trying the D&G white laofers with massive sunglasses...Not working at all for me..

No-one's saying that you can't get white shoes wrong (D&G was the hint to me). I think that the suggestions above - especially Vannevar Bush - show the way to do it right.

This is a 'street' shoe, but you could wear the light grey pants, even with a glen plaid pattern, and set them off against white shoes.
My personal preference is to wear white shoes with grey, over black, but that is mainly because I don't wear black, as much as possible.

I will struggle with white shoes even on holidays...

It is a look working very well on other people but not on me...

Thanks.
Nothing. Don't do it.

Those look very shiny and white , like Hollywood teeth. Too bright for me. I just bought a pair of nubucks from Paul Stuart in a beige, sand color , ( posted about them last week).

These are pretty matt in real life. I've switched the laces on mine, and it reduces the Hollywood, FL feeling even further.

Do your bucks get dirty?

I really think dark jeans is the best option. just my opinion though

So someone decides to splurge on a pair of shoes because he has the balls to try a li'l funky footwear, and at least 2/3rds of the dudes on here say. . ."NO. DON'T. EVER."

F ya'll.

Blue trousers, grey trousers, khakis, seersucker suits, slim fit jeans and a myriad other options. Wear them like you know something the others don't (think: Jeff Spiccoli) and have fun.

In addition to most of the foregoing, white cotton trousers. A blue blazer, white pants and white bucks make a great combo, I think.
