    In need of suggestions for casual shoes for me. I'm a 25 year old med student from Dallas. With winter barely hitting Dallas now I was trying to buy some casual shoes to wear with jeans and casual button-ups. I currently have a pair of beeswax Clarks desert boots, but want to add another shoe into the rotation. Any and all suggestions are appreciated!

    What's your budget?
    I got a pair of ravello alden plain toe blutchers recently which I very much like. click
    Otherwise you could look for some suede single monks from Crockett or Carmina. Something like this.

    I have a pair of short wing oxford brogues in a darker than tan lighter than mid brown color. Works with jeans, and a lot of casual trousers

    ^ +1 on Indy boots. I wore Clarks DBs for a while a few years ago, and Indys were my next step up to better footwear

    I think the SC is wonky, that's why there's so much cuff, but the SC could definitely be 1/4 inch longer (at least, in the sleeve).

    I've been eyeing some Loake Kemptons. I noticed NOBD just got some and that's all the endorsement anyone should need.

    That is an excellent looking outfit. Other than the sleeves, but that's an easy fix.

    You've REALLY come a long way in how you dress. Nice work.

    Yes, I think it is worth it. It is a big, hefty sweater--lots of room in the chest. It is not a sweater that one can wear a collared shirt underneath. I wear a Patagonia base layer, and I find this to be comfortable and sufficient. I do not find the wool scratchy or picky--but it is wool. Not everyone's cup of tea. It is an outdoor sweater. Even in temperatures below 30, this sweater with a scarf and wool cap get the job done. It is a great sweater for active wear outdoors in cold weather. In frigid weather, I wear a light mountain parka shell over the sweater, and I'm good.
