    I need some help! I own several expensive button down shirts (long sleeve) like Bugatchi Uomo and i wear it with a nice pair of jeans like True religion or 7 for mankind. where i am having issues is what type of shoes do you wear with this outfit? i have no idea what type of shoes to buy for this combination. Please help!
    I wear this out not to work so its more a causual type of dressing up.

    Completely up to you. I wear something similar.
    In the summer I usually wear suede chukkas. In the winter I go with Alden boots or a decent pair of dress shoes, usually wing tip.

    If you are going out you also have the same problem I do which is people stepping on your nice shoes. So I get a pair that can take more of a beating then my normally finely polished dress shoes.

    I like AE's new web gem for this:

    A heartier pair of Aldens works too:

    What kind of look exactly are you going for?

    True Religion jeans sounds disastrous

    Great advice ... Thanks for the links i really like the the links... nice shoes. So what are the best jeans these days? i thought True Religion were still good?

    Main reason i made this post is i always get complements on my shirts and pants but the shoes people always question lol
