    I could see them as white sneaker replacements in a casual outfit... As a 20/21 year old, I wore denim, white sneakers (adidas, Nike dunks, whatever) and various shirts (buttondown shirts, poli shirts, etc). I could easily see someone a bit older replacing the sneakers with these, wearing upgraded denim and an upgraded shirt.

    EDIT - You can wear those with any casual outfit you would wear white suede bucks with (i.e. any denim or chino, but no seersucker suits)

    +1. Which suede PTB are you wearing and what is the last? Do you know the model # too?

    Will wear my pair with dark denim in the spring and maybe some of the cooler summer days. And I will let them get a little dirty without fussing over it.

    Of course everyone should wear indy as a work boots... Especially the forumites here who incessantly rub their shoes with passion!
    Come on it's supposed to be a reinterpretation by the guys who deal with big(ger) time customers who would rarely get their hands dirty

    By the way awesome chukkas / argyles uncle

    To each his own, but you'll never see me wearing a pair of tapered jeans. Just not my thing.
