I have a nice pair of Allen Edmonds Dalton Wing tip Dress Boots (walnut color). Can I wear them w/ nice jeans, a dress shirt & blazer? I read somewhere that you shouldn’t wear a suit w/ lace-up dress boots. Thx. See pic of boots.

Ever see that old Seinfeld where George wanted to be draped in velvet? I'm that way about AE walnut

The suit with lace up dress boots is a "no brown in town" like rule (in my opinion; though where I live oxfords area rare choice even among suit wearers), also there are closed laced dress boots (balmoral boots) that are just as formal a oxfords (there are some nice threads with pictures, "Balmoral Boot Porn" most recent post shows some worn with nice trousers).
