Thank you Albiciades, jhcam8, and Engprof for your insights !
after some more browsing I'm absolutely stoked with colour and look of these alden ravello captoe (http://www.arichinnerlife.com/2010/1...-captoe-boot/)
, absolutely gorgeous. I think that captoe is number one in my list
maybe it is me because my assortment now is only dress oxfords and suede chukkas which do not work for me with wool pants - but maybe it is just because of suede or colours - not the plain toe. Should look for some more dressy plain toe boots.
sorry but what is rough leather vs "dressier"? For instance shell cordovan is on rough side or ?
I'm wondering why I can't pair my dress pants with suede chukka - they look very rough but at the same time I've seen a lot of shots of suit pairing with such boots. Maybe some more thick wool / flannels should work...
