Sorry for the repost I posted the original thread in the wrong section I shouldve posted here I apologize and request for my other thread in streetwear and denim to be deleted.

But Anyways

I found these Robert Wayne shoes on sale at Marshalls for 30 bucks

I thought they look pretty good.

Would they go better with jeans or are they too formal?

Brown suede saddle shoes are fine with jeans.

Aren't they generally leather? Anyway, edge dressing on the sides, and some people get a bit of leather lotion on the bottoms from time to time. They're cheap to replace, too.

I don't wear nice shoes when the pavement is wet and the sidewalks are salty. For the uppers, I brush them off when I come in, using a damp paper towel to remove salt, and I polish them when they need it.

I want to wear these brogues with dark jeans but I've seen a couple of similar pairs on sale and read on a fashion website that brogues are for autumn to spring. Can I wear these year-round? Are they still in style?

I feel like those are too formals tho I think suede goes better with jeans compared to leather

post #25766 of 33399

So the brown brogues are still style and ok to wear year-round, they're just too formal for dark jeans?

post #25767 of 33399

yea I think they're too formal for dark jeans

You can wear them with jeans if you've put together a smart outfit, but if you've got to ask, chances are you aren't confident in that stylistic decision and it may look unnatural. With that being said, something casual like a polo shirt may look like you have no idea what you're doing but a unstructured button-down and blazer combo can definitely be pulled off. Brown brogues are a very versatile shoe.

My question is regarding acceptable clothing to wear the shoes like this. Now i'm not very sure what everyone's opinion in on Cole Haan, I haven't t noticed much mention at all on here.  Anyway, I like them and they are very comfortable and I get a good deal on them. I work in a pretty casual environment (typical outfits I see around are sperrys, jeans/chinos, polo/t-shirt/untucked button-ups). I move around a lot from inside to outside so comfort is key as is staying cool (its very warm where I live). 

 

I quite like these three pairs (minus the pink laces in the first), but was wondering if it would be acceptable to wear these with jeans and a t-shirt. I like to wear slim raw jeans (usually wearing 3sixteen st100x) and plain v-neck or crew T-shirts (white/black/grey). Now i suppose these are about as casual as wing-tips get so what are your thoughts? I'd appreciate any feedback. 

 

 

I'd say the grey ones  at the bottom are good with jeans & a t-shirt.  The other two, with the chunky soles, I can definitely see with jeans & a dress shirt, but a t-shirt is a bit far - though maybe with a sport coat & t-shirt look.  I don't think that look gets much love here, in general, but if it's a look you wear, I could see the brown brogues working.  Best advice is to wear a pretty typical outfit, and go try on the shoes and see hw you like it. Take some photos, and don't buy anything on the first trip, so you don't end up with regret.  Think about it and, if you're still really excited about one pair, and how it looks after a few days, go buy them.

There is nothing with the shoe, but don't wear these with jeans. They are really meant for suits.
