I'm not the most up to date person with style, but I was really surprised when I read on the askandy board that most people think its appropriate to wear cowboy boots with their suits. I've never seen this before. Is this a regional thing, so if you live in places like Texas then this would be okay. I guess I'm still dubious of people wearing suits with sneakers, and am not ready to accept this either.

Then Paul Bremer must drive you nuts with his tan combat boots/navy blue suits.

It is ridiculuous.

Why not a string cow boy tie or shaps?

Only if you are from Texas. Not pretending to be from Texas like someone we know.

Definitely - If you live in Texas, Arizona (like me), any of the other Red States or if you work in Washington D.C., it's perfectly acceptable.

I like to wear my ropers myself just to pay tribute to our (hopefully) soon to be reelected President.

Same goes for some parts of California (primarily agricultural areas.)

I don't know about that.. I've lived in Texas all my life, and there are alot of cowboys/rednecks where I live, but even here I think cowboy boots with a suit is a little extreme. Although if this forum were filled with people where I live, there would be non-stop talk about the styles of cowboy boots that are worn with suits. I live in a rural area, but I'm not "country" in the least, so when I or other people like me see someone in a suit with boots, there's no reason to make a fuss. It's common, but we shake our heads a little.

Perhaps I should make myself clear - I'm not saying that you should wear boots with your suits, just that the look does not stand out at all in many areas.
