    Couple questions regarding these shoes:

    Would you wear them with jeans?

    When wearing with shorts would you wear ankle socks or no socks?

    I would wear them with jeans or shorts. Pretty versatile casual shoe in my opinion. I just got some Mocc Socks. I havn't actually used them yet, but i've tried them on, and they are waaaaay low. I personally hate being sockless, but you wouldn't want much sock showing with shorts. You should check them out.

    how is the sizing on AA t's? I normally wear a size s hanes shirt and they fit well after they have been washed/dried on high (they shrink a lot). Do AAs shrink like Hanes?

    I'm 5'8-5'9 with a 36' chest. I take a small in both hanes and AA t's. From what I've experienced the AA shirts do shrink a bit in length, but they don't end up being boxy like some of the hanes shirts. I like the length post wash, I just wish they were thicker.

    Can black balmoral full broque long wings be worn with jeans? Or are they too dressy? Thanks in advance.

    Depends on your aesthetic, but in general brogues aren't that dressy. I guess if you're used to wearing sneakers all the time, they might be.

    So you think even though they're balmorals they wouldn't be too dressy? I've been back and forth on this issue countless times. Lol.

    I never think brogues are too dressy unless you're wearing them with a sweatsuit or something. But if you're worried they are, probably shouldn't get them. Not like you can wear them with a proper suit anyway. I mean, you can, but [​IMG]

    Debatable. What item in particular? Button down?

    Well, it was their Spring Knit Bomber. Called them up though; they said it's made in China. Although the measurements are spot on and it's what I was looking for, I can't justify spending ~$400 on a jacket made in China.

    [​IMG] What's the consensus on these Clae shoes? I think they would work well with jeans (particularly dark), but not really short about pairing them with shorts. I can't afford them if they aren't versatile [​IMG]

    such as? Really just need casual shoes for jeans or shorts paired with button down or polo, just a conservative look.
