    is 1/2 inch too big, too big for boots?

    Yes and no, its at least 1 full size but you can adjust with thick socks and/or sport/comfort insoles.

    Are there any boots similar to the Common Project's officer boots? I'm looking for a casual black boot to be worn with tapered jeans so it has to be slim enough for the hem to fit over the laces and preferably not a workboot that will make my feet look gigantic in comparison to the tapered pants.

    Try ndc, buttero and fiorentini and baker

    Kinda my thinking but if they're in regular use white may not be white for long.. Hmmm.

    Have you considered the gray ones?

    I'm looking for a reputable website that sells coats/jackets for spring. I need one that ships to Canada and carries good fashion brands. I know of gilt and ebay, but none others.

    I got flamed for asking this in another thread and was told to ask this here, so here goes nothing. (flame suit on)

    What is the best way to wear boat shoes in DC during the winter? Socks, no socks, jeans, corduroys, chinos? Anything would be greatly appreciated.

    ^ You're probably getting flamed because it sounds like a silly question.

    First off, dude, the temperatures here in DC/NoVA have rarely been over 45 since November, and it's usually in the 20s or lower. You're actually considering not wearing socks? Facepalm moment. The sockless look is great when its pleasant weather. Think that through.

    How do you normally wear boat shoes? Do the same in winter, but with layers and/or heavier pants.

    ^ short answer yes

    long answer no since nothing is a must not even wearing cool clothes

    must to live?
    must for the shoe to smell nice?
    must for the shoe to live long?

    What do you guys think of these? http://www.aldoshoes.com/ca-eng/men/...0894330-doe/97 with a slim navy suit that I have? I don't want to buy anything overly expensive because I literally have no money and I need a pair of leather shoes
    I would first advice against getting anything from aldo but if you must due to budget or whatever then just make sure you get something made in portugal which is the only halfway decent leather shoes that aldo sells, most others are made in india or pakistan and the leather is of much inferior quality, some feel like plastic others like paper mache, most are very thin and crease immediately too.

    Roden Grey Inventory Gravity Pope Jonathan + Olivia Nomad U&I ssense ^ All in Canada for starters and good brands, high retail but you can look for discounts and sales.

    My guess for the ones on the right would be f+b elios in dark brown with some good wear and/or distressing, sorry I cant help more than that.
