    Any minute now, someone will show up here and rant at great length about how if it's black it's not a blazer. If you're lucky, they'll even mention the Royal Navy ship of the same name. Don't let them put you off though...

    The more pressing point would be whether a black jacket over dark blue jeans is a good idea, and that might depend on the shirt. What's the jacket made of?

    All of those shoes are horrendous. You'll be in Vegas, go drop in at Neiman Marcus, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, or Tom Ford and get a pair of black loafers.

    [​IMG] assuming the OP is made of money, particularly in Tom Ford case...

    I love the way you put it in a matter of factly way, sure no problem, just go in and spend a few grand on a pair of shoes [​IMG]

    Black is a color, a Blazer is a piece of clothing. Just kidding.

    No offense but to everyone who's giving him a hard time about his shoes, please remember this guy is going to Vegas and not Monte Carlo.

    95% of the people in Vegas are degenerates and the place is dirty anyway.

    If anything just wear a pair of sneakers if you're not dressing up and if you are those shoes are fine. As long as you're spending money at the tables people could care less.

    With a black jacket and black shoes over dark denim you will look just like everyone else in vegas. If you have black trousers to match the coat I would go that route.

    99% of people in Vegas are far more interested in gambling and/or drinking than what you're wearing. You see more people in sweats than dress shoes. Wear whatever's comfortable - you're probably going to do a LOT of time walking, unless you're wanting to fork over money for cabs (which would be surprising considering your shoe budget).

    If you want to get into a decent club, you'll need leather shoes. But, as was mentioned, you'll probably spend more than your shoe budget in that club. Pass on those loafers and save your cash for the bartender.

    Suede is a type of leather. Doubt many of those clubs are too strict; call & ask, I guess.

    Black & brown don't match. Neither do black shoes & blue jeans.

    No. Get the desert boots. Get a pair of bucks. Get a pair of weejuns. But cheap black leather shoes are a bad idea with jeans.

    First rule: do not wear black dress shoes with jeans.
    Second rule: do NOT wear black dress shoes with jeans.


    And if your going to break the first two rules, by god man, at least wear good black dress shoes....

    Your assuming we wear black blazers to begin with. I for one do not own a black blazer. I have a black suit for funerals and sometimes wear it when I need something to wear that I can destroy and not give a shit.

    But we're talking pants. Black shoes + brown pants = off for some reason. Brown shoes with black pants = flat out wrong.

    Conversely: Black Shoes with Brown Pants: Also wrong.

    OP, no offense, but you need to read & lurk here for a bit and then all the things that people are saying in this thread will be completely predictable.

    In the meantime, wear whatever you were intending to to Vegas. No-one will give a sh*t.

    Point taken. But the reason he cares is so that he will be able to "party/club/pick up women." How will wearing black dress shoes with jeans make that in any way more difficult?

    Because a man's shoes are the second thing a woman looks at.

    also any other clothing staples for the clubs down there? i know it depends on personal style. im more of a dark denim/dark v neck kind of guy.

    i have a few nice pairs of jeans, clarks desert boots for the day time, going to order another pair of regular sneakers to walk around in, have some nice button up shirts as well as a blazer


    Personal preference sure, but honestly, if you're looking to pick up girls, don't worry too much about it. If you have a decent game on your home turf you will have NO PROBLEM in Vegas.

    The loafers would look better than the black lace-ups or get a pair of slim gray pants to wear with the blazer and dress shoes.
