Seeing that fit pic, I take back what I said about it being boring. I don’t personally like this style but it is not boring!

Good timing. I was just given cause to reflect on the sizing of these as compared to my Chambords.
Bison or Grainé
Lisse marron or Coffee
I own two pairs and am a fan––they are a strange shoe in that they are perhaps too "formal" to work with casual pants but they also have thick rubber soles and other details that make them a little too "doc marten like" to be a straight swap for a pair of actual dress shoes.Paraboot Avignon - y/n?
If yes, any advice for sizing?
I've never done that and hadn't thought of it, thank you!Or simply use a cream (Meltonian or other) that’s very dark brown. It will darken it a shade or two. Some people use black cream polish to darken leather.
Ribbed sleeve j but otherwise it’s nice. Monitaly or Needles is better.The cardigan + pant combo are too good here!
I totally forgot about Needles' fuzzy cardigans. I'll take a look at them as well.
I'm aware NMWA carries the Monitaly cardigan. Greg's opinion is still appreciated
I do like the utility vibe and I think the metal snaps fit in with that. But now I can't unsee the ribbed sleeve and am not loving how it bunches. Good eye.

My recommendation then would be to avoid high contrast between pants and boots. You want to stick with high value (light) colors for pants, so for example they’d look a lot better with light washed jeans than dark raw denim, or with tan/beige fatigues rather than something dark. White and cream will look great with that shade too.Part of me loves the color… I'd rather learn how to wear it than change it. It's been a process. I see few people wearing tan shoes well, so I'm probably not alone.
