I'm new to this site & i need some help/ideas on what to wear. I'm gettin rid of all of my "swag" cloths, & shoes to dress more classy but somewhat casual. I just purchased two brown wingtips shoes, & a pair of black dress shoes. I prefer to wear them with denim jeans but i have no idea on what color dress shirts would look good on them. So can someone help me out, & give me some ideas on what i could wear with them or what i should i avoid?

Post pictures of the shoes or pull some images online of the shoes you got. Telling you specific colors is hard because there will be many, you really just need to learn hue brightness contrast and texture. If you post them though, I'm sure someone will chime in. Brown wings go great with everything, or most things, especially with jeans. So you're in luck.

Perhaps patterned light blue or pink dress shirt. As those shoes are rather conservative, the shoes + white shirt might look too 'business' for jeans. Although white shirt plus sweater changes things.

Welcome to SF. You might also try the Streetwear & Denim forum to get some advice on this since you seem to like wearing jeans. I agree that an oxford cloth button down (OCBD) is probably the best thing to pair with jeans. Either white or pink.

Also, FWIW, those shoes are not "wingtips." They're a half brogue balmoral which is a bit more formal. I'd say they're a bit formal to wear with jeans but if you like the look, you'll be fine. I'd prefer monkstraps, derbys or loafers within the nice leather shoe category for the look you're going for.
