    Hi,
    I tried a few times posting this in the ask a question thread to get replies commenting on how ugly the jacket is, which is of no help,

    So ill try here

    So i am thinking of getting a black leather bomber jacket, im 27 and will wear with jeans/chinos, casual shirts = vertical stripe, flanel, OCBD plains, checked, or a plain sweater/jumper
    worn casually on the evenings and weekends out with friends , girlfriend, pubs/bars, restuarants, shopping,

    i already have a brown leather bomber jacket, which i wear with either dark brown boat shoes or chukka boots, but having seen a black leather bomber, i want one of them too!
    is getting 2 of the same jackets in different colors a bit unnecessary?


    So as i have no casual black footwear, only office shoes, i assume i need some black footwear to wear with the jacket

    and as black and brown doesnt go together, i guess i should wear the brown boat shoes when i have the bkack bomber on?
    i dont want black boat shoes or chukka boots but a different type of shoe, ideally

    Quite frankly I don't see a leather bomber going well with some of the articles of clothing you listed.

    Okay, which articles of clothing dont go well with the jacket?

    what would you wear instead with a black leather bomber jacket?

    any other thoughts on footwear to=hat goes with the jacket?

    Beanies are the best in my opinion. Usually beanies are suitable for almost everyone.

    thanks guys,

    As i'm 6'3" i dont want boots as they nearly always have a chunky heel, making me taller

    So i want footwear with thin soles,

    are there any black boots with thin soles?

    what do you think of black tassle loafer to wear with the leather bomber jacket?

    thanks for the suggestion,
    what's this style of boot called (with a thin sole) ?
    i actually have a pair of brown boots just like these, so ideally dont want to get the same ones but in black.

    What are others views on the black tassle loafers? to be worn with jeans/chinos, casual shirt and black leather bomber

    5354, which items of the outfit should be removed/changed?

    I can't see flannel and checked sweaters going well with leather. Light-colored chinos are also risky IMO.

    Won't boots with thin soles look extremely disproportionate?

    And if you are that tall, thin soles will be totally destroyed in no time.

    So you will look weird, but only for a short time before you have to replace the boots.
