Thinking about getting some suede bucks to wear with Engineered Garments and Needles type stuffs.
Saw some Woolrich Woolen Mills white bucks in London that I liked. Can't find them online, only pictures of them I can find are from the lookbook (sorry about douchey bandana man): Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
They have leather soles (rather than red brick) which I like. Otherwise I'm guessing they're pretty much the same shape as McNairy/Sanders bucks.
Or how about dirty bucks like: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Any other brands/ suggestions? I know Walk-over and J-Crew do cheaper bucks but they look kind of meh to me. I like the idea of some suede Trickers but they're probably a bit chunky not to mention more expensive.
What sort of pants do you usually wear? With denim I prefer dirty bucks. White bucks are nice but have very warm-weather connotations. They're not like white sneakers. If you wear a lot of khaki toned pants though you may want to go white b/c dirty bucks don't offer much contrast with tan pants.
If it were me I'd also choose a crepe or leather sole over red. I like my red brick soles but they're getting dated in the context of men's contemporary, and make the shoes an ounce less versatile, colorwise, and more definitively preppy.
