    [​IMG] Pretty much bought these by inpulse today for $40. Not sure if they're keepers or not considering the price point. Not a fan of black, but I could see these with a black pair of longwings. Any thoughts on what else this could be paired with? I have dark brown, walnut brown, burgundy, brown suede shoes as well...

    I can think of almost no time when I would wear black corduroys. Perhaps others can.

    Still trying to figure out how to pull these off. Any other thoughts?

    I can't tell whether they're really black or more of a faded black/grey color. If the latter then I'd consider:

    Black Chelseas, black chino blazer, white shirt

    For a more casual look, perhaps:

    Black chuck-type sneaker, dark black t-shirt, charcoal v-neck sweater

    Return them. Why keep them if you can't figure out what to pair them with?
