    Shoes that go with jeans, oxford shirt, light colored linen or cotton jacket.
    What shoes do you wear with this type of Spring and Summer outfit?

    Wingtips feel a bit too dressy.
    The wingtips and jeans combo also has a hint of "cowboy" to it.
    Jeans and any dress shoes just don't right, in fact.

    I need a slightly more casual shoe for this slightly casual outfit.
    For now, I have been wearing my beater rubber soled J&M NST's with the jeans/jacket look.
    Anyone have any options? Oxford buck shoes?

    Something like Trompe suggested or a nice pair of chukka boots. The loafers work as well, but if you don't like that idea then so be it.

    Gucci bit loafers. They have a new "retro" collection out right now. The heel is way too low for a proper copy of the old model, but still it is not bad. Preferably not in black though.

    .......should I have added that the non-lacquer ones are better?

    ^^^I think Gucci took a silly pill when they designed these. I do like them in classic tan calf. But even then, suede bucks are my go-to shoe for linen, denim and OCBD

    I can see the appeal of the bucks but I guess that they are very American - I have seen them very seldomly in continental Europe.

    Those Gucci shoes are hideous.
    Looks like SF has gone far downhill the last few years.
