    Considering these Loake Burfords, to wear with jeans. What do you guys think?

    Lord, no. That piece of footwear is unsure whether or not it is a dress shoe or a boot. Nasty in my opinion.

    I actually like them. I just got similar boots from Alden. They probably are more casual than you are thinking and would look great with either denim or khakis in my opinion.

    Does anyone else feel these boots are nasty and should be left alone?

    I think they look great, not sure about the pull tab but I like it.

    edit: Actually I like the pull tab, must make life a lot easier

    ^I don't really like either of them, but that's my opinion.


    Looks cool, but I don't know what rogues gallery sizing is like


    Rouges Gallery seems to run big.. but that's a parka so maybe stick TTS cause of layering?

    thanks for the info, I read on revolve that the outerwear runs a bit small, so I was hoping it would fit.

    I might just bite the bullet and return if it doesn't fit.

    Which color should I get the Spiewak Mckenzie in?

    1) Gray w/ blue windowpane

    2) Brown

    3) Tan w/ windowpane (seems to be exclusive to Urban Outfitters)

    ^ I've seen the second and third in person at my nearest army/navy store. I don't like the third at all, too busy for my liking. I did like the color of the second (marbled brown), though. It depends on what color you'd be pairing with the most I suppose. Are you buying those online? If so be weary as I've tried two Spiewak coats now in person and each one have had factory stiching issues (a brown McKenzie that had one of the arm holes stitched shut at the midway point, and a peacoat that had bad stiching on the back that constricted movement through the lats). Just a heads up.

    Thanks. I'm leaning toward the brown since it seems like the most versatile color.

    Thoughts on Springcourt Perforated Mid-cut's? I'm looking for an alternative to black Chucks and these are on sale for $100.

    ^ I'd like those if it weren't for the perforations. I just can't swallow perforations on my sneaks, but that's just me. Have you tried Tretorn or PF Flyers? They have some nice ones that are a better (in my opinion) alternative to Chucks.

    PS: Nice to see a near-by (sort of) member around the boards. I'm just outside the King of Prussia area myself.

    ^I'd say gray is the most versatile (and arguably boring) color to have in your wardrobe, it actually goes with everything. If you don't have any gray outerwear, I'd do that before brown.

    Converge- I like those as a chuck alternative. The perfs look pretty dope. JPGM had some white spring court perf mids like that and they were nice. I say go for it.

    andrewryanwallace is right. Charcoal outerwear is easy as shit to pair. Last winter when i had my charcoal inapt peacoat up north, i wore it all the time. Easy peesy
