    I don't like the brown peeking through the broguing nor the stitching personally but I think they would work well with your style.

    I prefer some of his cufflinks but I think those are cool for your style.

    Funny, I was just looking at a pair of these made by Brooks Brothers in white buck. They'd be hard to pull off, but I was thinking of wearing them with a pair of raw slim fit or white slim jeans. Other than that, I'd imagine some pastel linen trousers will work as well. Cool shoes nevertheless.

    Here're the BB made ones:

    A while back I posted some Tricker's boots just like those bucks. I think the smooth leather ones look too much like golf shoes, but bucks would be cool.

    Whoopee....yea the brown peeking thru the broguing is one of the details I really liked, providing some contrast so it isnt stark white.

    Tiger...I have a pair of the mini cooper links, they're fun.

    I'm hoping they have these in-store to check out in real life this weekend.

    Wouldn't raw jeans turn shoes like this blue within days, if not hours?

    Yes they would...I wouldnt wear white leather shoes with raw jeans for that reason. But with a slim casual wool or cotton trouser they'd look great.

    They look great, and I agree about the brown peaking through. It adds visual interest rather than just blinding you. I do think, though, that if you are going to sport shoes like that, you should top it off with a cool lid.

    I like those shoes, Jason. Personally, I wouldn't wear them because I don't quite understand how to coordinate white (except for shirts) with other items in my outfit.

    Actually, I'm a bit fond of having some indigo on my white shoes. I have a pair of leather all white Chucks with spots of indigo on them. I think some dirt and indigo give the shoes a bit of character.

    I dont mind indigo stains on my white trainers, but I wouldnt want those same stains on a $400 pair of dress-y shoes

    Have you seen his Bristol 403 ones? I have them in red and green. Everyone who studies them asks me what kind of car is on them, too. Nobody guesses right, though.

    yep, I have those as well, where one link is the front of the car (red) and the other link is the rear (green). I want to get the clock links next, in red.
