Any  thoughts on a new pair of shoes I just bought?  (...intending to wear mainly with jeans).

 

Church Chetwynd, walnut calf

  • 10% discount and free shipping, these were a total bargain IMO

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

Also had a few pairs of Cheaneys together, so thought someone might be interested in a group shot/ Cheaney range of brown (ish) comparison

Loafers in Espresso

Brogues in Mahogany

Derbies in Dark Leaf

Burnso - all nice shoes but I'm not a fan of shoes with jeans - never have been - its a personal thing. Perhaps the odd big brown or burgundy country brogue gunboat. Same with tailored jackets or sport coats (some rare exceptions) with jeans. { I know theres no need to mention it because no one here would ever do it - wearing a tie with jeans}

I think it looks like the straight arrow accountant from one of the big firms, whose wife usually buys his suits, who just chucked on jeans and an old business shirt, no tie and business shoes to "relax" for the weekend or casual BBQ. With jeans I like boots, sneakers*, desert boots, chukkas etc.

That said - I think the loafers work best - either with argyles or white socks.
I know YOU wouldn't go sockless with those loafers.
Would you?

* as per the usual sneaker warning.
Depends what kind of sneaker and please please - no sneakers if you are over 30 or so.

What were you looking up on the dictionary?

I agree with FXH. They will look odd with jeans. And may stray into Hipster territory, depending on how skinny your jeans are. Would look good with a navy suit though, or a smart pair of cotton trousers.

Hi Burnso,

 

Nice score!

 

What is the last of the brogued oxfords in the middle of the group shot-very impressed!

Can't agree with that. I have a nice pair of grey suede Common Projects that look great with jeans. I agree about sneakers if you mean running shoes, as I'd never want to give anyone the impression that exercise is an interest of mine smile.gif.

The Sundance Kid, wears a few  classic ensembles in the film Spygame(good show). Outfit one herringbone sports coat, blue shirt with black knit - and to throw it all together a mac for protection from the elements. However his best accessory is his Porsche 912 in British racing green.....

Firstly, I'd never guessed you were over 30, secondly you look good in anything, thirdly you are so advanced you can break the rules.

I meant sneakers. I'd never imagined anyone here would wear athletic shoes for anything other than exercise.

I have seen some of the sneakers from skateboard mobs like vans look acceptable. Suede sneakerrs always look better. I can get with old white or black Dunlop volleys though.

Thought has crossed my mind

Yeah Im still finding my style/ just breaking into both of the above, and don't think it looks too bad.

 

Im in Melbourne and its so common to see nice jeans with (crap) shoes around town and at the pubs. Without wanting to obviously stand out, taking the look subtly up a few notches by wearing nice shoes with nice jeans was a logical first step for me. Then with a nice shirt, framing it with a lapelled jacket also seemed like the next step. 

 

Perhaps its just  time to mix in different crowds ;)

A good example of this look which originated back in the early 70's





Went into CR and Trenery which is their hip off shoot t(?) o look for a lambswool jumper or cardi's not much at CR four to choose from in Canberra in this weather? Trenery had a couple of shawl collar cardi's which while over priced did have some heft in the weave will be back for the sale I think http://www.trenery.com.au/shop/menswear/clothing/knitwear/60153451/Textured-Shawl-Cardigan.html

Cheaney Last 205. 

They are a size 10.5k (my dads), and I felt at that size the toe was perhaps a bit too pointy. Colour very nice with jeans peepwall[1].gif

Suit came in today, will try on when I get home.

Speaking of black knit ties, I just brought back the two I had left behind in Singapore. One is a straight end, and the other (which I inherited from my dad) is a pointed end one. Can't wait to start rotating them.
