It's because it's a pretty basic question.

Medium to dark wash jeans and navy/grey/brown socks.

Thanks for the help. Sorry I am a bit of a noob and just trying to make sure I don't look like a moron. This is my first pair of brown shoes. Your answer is what i suspected but thanks for confirming.

No worries. Take a look at the WAYWRN threads in both here and the Streetwear forums to get a better idea of outfit combinations.

You mean "Dad" jeans? haha.

I have levis relaxed straight fit in just about any color. I just may need to buy some brown socks.

So true. Double pleated jeans = old man.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.
