Just looking for ideas or to see how people are wearing them...i.e. casual with jeans, dressy etc. Have a pair of AE Macneils and trying to mix them into the wardrobe. Thanks

There's a school of thought that says wear them with black knee socks, madras shorts and a white patent belt. Really cool in say, Sararsota.

The other school says wear them with anything you want, suits to jeans. If you love them you'll be wearing them well. No rules. I have some and I never could have imagined I'd like 'em. Guess what?

haha. too funny. Mine arent cords...but damn that would be awkward...im pretty sure 2 grown men in red pants in the same room would have the same effect as dividing by zero or the like.

With jeans or a suit. I don't tend to wear black shoes with odd jackets or blazers, but never say never I guess.

I wear mine with jeans, khakis, and dress trousers/suits. My Sister laughs at my "old man" shoes, but I love 'em!
