    I would have thought the same.

    I believe bucks were originally made using deer hide, hence the term "buck"

    i do like the navy suede shoes ... BOTH of them actually
    and i guess i'd keep the bucks more since i have several wingtips
    but i'm going to return them both
    and probably order the land's end navy suede longwing instead (eventually)
    but for now...

    i really like these shoes
    C&J Pembroke
    really fills a void in my shoe rotation
    and i really can't buy so many pairs of shoes at once ... so i will be responsible and return the red wing boots and the jcrew suede shoes

    It's very likely I'm not using the correct terminology. What I would like to have is a navy suede version of this (borrowed pic from trig).

    If that is the case, that wasn't the distinction I intended.

    id recommend a khaki colored SC, in a cotton or cotton/linen blend. RL makes a great one for under 300.

    i have a brooks bro cotton sc in khaki/light tan color ... but it feels too stuffy to wear for a truly casual outfit
    wish the shoulders were completely unstructured to be more casual

    [​IMG]
    pre-tailoring trying on in the dressing room
    i wonder if i can just have the shoulder pads taken out and see if the shoulders can be taken in a little to compensate ... (to the tailor's thread i go)

    Its a nice looking jacket, but i agree, for the chinos and gingham look you had, a more unstructured and wrinkly fabric would be better. Keep an eye out.

    I've never seen trousers quite like this! Purple plaid? Paired with that bright green sweater, the effect must be rather dazzling. Neat shoes, too.

    ^ Beige trousers + brown gloves.

    Edit for sugarbutch: Beige/tan trousers and brown gloves would work better a. because more casual, and b. because non-driving driving gloves look as weird as it is!
