    actually brown goes quite decently with indigo jeans, i think, a quieter kind of look compared with a brighter colour.

    I prefer a hazelnut suede loafer and camel loafers to be worn with very washed out jeans that hardly have any blue or indigo in them though I know it's heresy on this board to wear anything other than raw denim [​IMG]

    I do pure black jeans with darker coloured shirts. Black, brown, maroon... this week I'll probably be wearing black shoes, jeans, and shortsleeve buttondown with a couple of black bracelets and necklace. You have to have at least a smidgen of color somewhere on your body (like the Gold-coated lady in Goldfinger needed a bare spot so her skin could breathe) so I'll at least have on orange underwear.

    You wanted to know that [​IMG]

    Oh, I thought we were talking about black or grey jeans. Pretty much anything goes with dark blue jeans, even dark blue shirts, sweaters, sweatshirts, etc... Just have to get the hues contrasting enough in those cases.

    Haha I know man but I like variety. I can't have a closet of jeans that are all the same color and yes I have some TRs I bought over a year ago, some R&R, pdc and chip and peps, none of which I paid full pop for b/c I'm not an idiot. I'm trying to take the step into some of the shit you guys wear but it's too much work breaking them in and all the jeans you guys talk about look the same. I'm thinking about picking up some nudies this week though.

    haha. "all look same" syndrome. well you can always get predistressed japanese denim there are many different styles.. and all of these jeans we talk about may look the same in pictures but they definitely don't all look the same when you put them on- that's the big difference.

    I kinda feel that most of the brands that retail in America, outside of say... Rag & Bone, all look the same. Nudie (outside of the streaky stuff), APC, Kicking Mule, Dior, Julian Red, LVC, all distinguishable only by small details and back pocket designs. Probably just me though... Go Japanese [​IMG]

    just wanted to revive this by expanding the question to include shoes/boots/whatever.

    Street style/casual mostly. Looking for color and shoe type suggestions. I have never been able to successfully pull off black jeans. I was told black boots work well, but when I try that, I look off. It almost gives me a militant vibe... or like I'm trying to be dressy. Maybe it's just the type of boot. I'm not sure.

    Is something like this way off the mark?

    Personally I think a pair of classic desert boots like them is a great choice!
    Maybe go with a fitted grey tshirt to complete it.

    Weird, on a different forum, someone said these shoes are the OPPOSITE of what you should wear with black jeans. I'm confused. Argghhh!

    I guess next time I'll just make a new thread and add to the 100000 redundant ones here.

    Thanks.

    Neon tank it is.

    Well there's no accounting for taste!

    Some people just don't like looking good! ;)
