Isn't the distinction between the trousers and shoes utterly Italian?

I particularly like the "accessory" to his right.

Yes, but those look like work shoes, much like Redwing shoes.

To my eye they appear to be blond desert boots with an eraser sole.

That's unforgivable.

I don't mine the color contrast, I just think the shoes look like crap. There might be a reason why they are called desert boots.

This looks like a picture taken in the sixties when Clarks' Desert Boots (velvet suits and donkey jackets) were 'groovy' among actors, photographers and the like. Julie Christie (?) is also wearing suede.

Desert boots with corduroy trousers, such as he is wearing, still look good today IMO.
