    So I have some suede but it's all unlined. Thinking of grabbing a lined snuff boot and wondering how durable it would be in the autumn & winter in NYC. Can the suede take a decent beating? Any pics/endorsements of well worn snuff suede boots?

    Ok guys. I have not really been into dress boots up to this point but I am getting ready to get a pair or two. Question on how to wear boots with dress pants. I prefer not to have to have seperate shorter pants for wearing with boots, as I also will be wearing shoes throughout the autumn and winter. So I definetely want to be able to wear all of my pants with both shoes and boots.

    As such here is my question: do I let the pants fall naturally and cover the whole shaft (like the first photo below), in which case the fact that I'm wearing a boot (as opposed to a shoe) would kind of be a secret until I sit down and my pant leg rides up.

    [​IMG]

    Or do I kind of let the back of the pants gets stuck behind the pull tab, thus showing some more boot, like this:

    [​IMG]

    Or do I go even further and let even the front and sides of the pant kind of get stuck at the top of the boot, thus showing most of the boot, like this:

    [​IMG]

    All guidance would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

    ^ You may also consider shorten your trousers a little bit to pronounce your boots more.

    If you are wearing trousers with full break now, consider going with half break. If you are half break now, consider going with quarter break. So on... Until you find the right balance that you are happy to wear both your shoes and boots with.

    I agree with Noob and Steve. Go with option 1, consider a halfway solution for pant lengths that is good for boots or shoes. That is essentially where I have gone with my trousers. More to the quarter to no break category.

    Also, remember in NAMOR's photo, he is likely bending way the heck over to get that camera angle, which typically causes the pants to ride up. I find this very common for me when I am taking my daily Shoe pics.

    Agree with the other gentlemen on this thread, avoid option 2 and 3. That looks stupid. Stick with the trouser length of photo 1.

    Every once in a while I read comments on this thread that just make me go 'wow', though Namor's reaction is much more colorful. First, I agree with the sentiment that picture 1 looks better, I certainly disagree that 2 and 3 look ridiculous. And in my book, pic's 2 and 3 look fine with denim/cords. Taste is a tricky thing. The thing that kills me is that we actually buy slacks specifically for boot wear. I'm on board with Mike's suggestion, but having trousers inseam tailored only for boots or shoes? Wow, that's way too much for me to think about while getting dressed for work. And too expensive given my over-the-top shoe budget.

    I find that a narrow pant opening allows for a good no break look and accommodates shoes and boots. It sits high to accommodate boots and is still fashionable with shoes (though probably too fashion forward for some).

    Yes...can't have a wide pant leg in a no break situation. Agreed.
