    Shoes that go with jeans, oxford shirt, light colored linen or cotton jacket.
    What shoes do you wear with this type of Spring and Summer outfit?

    Wingtips feel a bit too dressy.
    The wingtips and jeans combo also has a hint of "cowboy" to it.
    Jeans and any dress shoes just don't right, in fact.

    I need a slightly more casual shoe for this slightly casual outfit.
    For now, I have been wearing my beater rubber soled J&M NST's with the jeans/jacket look.
    Anyone have any options? Oxford buck shoes?

    Something like Trompe suggested or a nice pair of chukka boots. The loafers work as well, but if you don't like that idea then so be it.

    Gucci bit loafers. They have a new "retro" collection out right now. The heel is way too low for a proper copy of the old model, but still it is not bad. Preferably not in black though.

    .......should I have added that the non-lacquer ones are better?

    ^^^I think Gucci took a silly pill when they designed these. I do like them in classic tan calf. But even then, suede bucks are my go-to shoe for linen, denim and OCBD

    I can see the appeal of the bucks but I guess that they are very American - I have seen them very seldomly in continental Europe.

    Those Gucci shoes are hideous.
    Looks like SF has gone far downhill the last few years.

    SF??? Why do you say SF? Why note Gucci, they are the ones who made them. I haven't seen anyone on Styleforum wear them.

    Because Gucci was never a SF approved brand. Tacky logos are anathema to the timeless gentleman!

    Suede bluchers or suede chukkas. I think calf leather is too formal, even in an informal style like a chukka.

    J Crew has some decent suede bucks (Goodyear welted, brick red soles) for $200. They can usually be had for less with a coupon or promotion.
