What do you gents think about these boots for office wear? We are required to occasionally wear formal business attire but all other times is business casual. Would these boots be versatile enough to pull off formal and casual?
They are a bit... shiny? Do you know what the material is? It's hard to tell from the picture.
I think that generally, a derby boot CAN be versatile enough to work both casually and for some slightly dressier occasions, but not this particular boot. As said, it's very shiny, which leads me to believe isn't full grain leather. Also, rubber soles, especially red rubber soles, wouldn't work for a dress boot to be worn with a suit. If you can find something similar made from a full grain leather and with a leather sole, you'll be on a better track.
Hey I've been looking around for some nice grey trousers (~$150 range) and I wanted to know if you can can recommend any?
I like the style of these: (http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=56575&vid=1&pid=421166&scid=421166002).
Is there something similar or better quality-wise you guys can recommend for around the same price, with this same kind of style?
I prefer them to be slim fit have have some kind of pattern but I am open to suggestions.
I'm a size 36x30 and I'm open to ebay/B&S
