    I tried on a pair of APC overdyed grey new standard jeans today. I liked them, but couldn't think of anything i could wear with them. So I did not buy them. Any suggestions on what i could wear with them?

    Wear them with:

    Slim black ankle boots
    White dress shirt
    Monochromatic black/white/silver striped tie
    Black or charcoal suit jacket

    - or -

    Black ankle boots/black chucks
    Black or dark gray cardigan sweater; either zip-up or button-style
    Solid black, white, or gray tee under. Or, use a brightly colored tee as the focal piece of the outfit.

    What's a good pair of ankle boots for around $100-200?

    Great suggestions. I espically like the second one. I may have to look into getting a dark cardigan sweater.

    Gray jeans take more effort to coordiante, unlike blue jeans which goest with almost everything.

    Yeah, gray jeans take a bit more work to pull off. I have four pairs in various shades of gray - from about the shade you posted, all the way to a pair that is nearly black.

    As previously stated, monochromatic color schemes work well with gray. Also, light pink looks really good, as do other pastel colors (baby blue, lilac, light yellow).

    You should definitely get a cardigan sweater. I have about 6-7 in the zip-up variety, and one really thick button up cardigan with a nice collar on it. I wore some variation of the cardigan sweater 4 days out of the week this fall and winter.
