^^^^ when you say they look ridiculous do you mean that they don't close properly?  do they hurt your feet?  how formal a setting? I don't personally put much stock, in this day and age, in bluchers being so much less formal, but context does matter, as does the rest of the style of the shoe.

I need to find this Herno-jacket:

 

http://bilder3.egmont.se/cache/7f/7f6f/7f6ff305a4e3d60c823f64f347debc0fe5eefe50

 

Prefferably online in Europe. But any will do.

 

Any ideas??

Picked up this jacket the other day for pretty cheap, fit feels okay to me, any quick opinions?  I can't quite decide if I want to keep it or not.

Does it look a bit big on the shoulders as well or is that just the padding?

Could be. They look like roped shoulders, so it could just be that. Either too short or too big in the shoulders make it a bad fit.

It's very dark, and casual enough that many people (myself included) would prefer brown shoes during the day.

 

Are you wearing a dress shirt under the sweater? With black shoes, go for a white shirt. With brown shoes, go for a light blue shirt. I don't like sweaters (especially v-neck) without a collared shirt under them, but if you're utterly married to the idea of a sweater without a shirt, it requires shoes more casual than wingtips.

I am wearing a lavender button down underneath. Was also thinking oxblood shoes.

Lavender is tough. Normally, I wouldn't suggest co-ordinating a shirt to a pair of shoes, but given that everything else is so neutral, it becomes a concern -- and I'm not sure about burgundy/oxblood with lavender. If the shoes and the shirt work together, then the burg shoes are a good idea if the style works with everything else. For whatever reason, any potential for conflict between lavender and burgundy wouldn't be a concern for me if you wore tan trousers. Not sure why, just wouldn't bug me.

Are Chelsea boots considered 'timeless' like oxfords?They seem like fashion trends recently, but they're too simple and nice to be trends. I can't get bespoke unless I know they stand the test of time.

They've been around for years. Big in the '60s and '70s, out during the '80s, back around the late '90s, bubbling under until recently AFAIK. More popular now. Those who really like them have stuck with them through out.

 

Talk to your shoemaker about it. They'll steer you in a good direction.

The quarter is wide open and stretched to the side, making my feet look like a hill. It doesn't hurt though. I'm in college so I think the most formal setting I will be in is job interview/internship at law/consulting office. My contact at the law office has actually told me that their dress code is 'business-casual' and I "don't need a full suit" but I can't be sure it's the same everywhere else.

^^^^ If a blucher is a better fit for you then wear them instead.
