Hello -

Can you wear a Frye boot with dress pants? How do you know if it looks good or if you look bizarre?

It all depends on your personality. I wouldn't wear my Frye boots with dress pants, but that is because I see them as projecting a more rugged personality while dress pants tend to come across as more sophisticated. I have only ever worn my boots with jeans and khakis.

I suppose if you are talking flat-front, contemporary cut dress pants it could work - if you are that type of person. But traditional, pleated, full-cut wool pants would seem very odd to me with a pair of (basically) work boots.

I can't see it. I have a pair of brown Fryes... no way could I envision them with dress pants. Too much conflict between the wool and the "rugged" nature of the boot...
