What would you wear these with? (Grey brogues)

I'm curious about your thoughts on these grey suede & leather brogues. The price and quality is right, at $99 for Northamptonshire shoes that are Goodyear welted.

But what about the style? I'm thinking they may go well with chinos, jeans, linens on a casual level.

Style? What style? There may be some here that like those, but not my bag, man.

darker brown or navy (black too?) cords. possibly dark wash jeans, but i don't see those working well with lighter color jeans.

I'd wear these with cords too (slim fit), maybe even black cords and/or possibly dark grey pin-striped pants.
El Jack, who makes those? They are some of the nicer grey shoes I've seen in a long while.
Links too please if possible.

If they were suede and calf, rather than patent they'd be much nicer.

MoL, they're from ASOS in fact but I knew that would catch heat on this forum. Sold out unfortunately as well. http://www.asos.com//Asos-Collection...px?iid=1018911 I agree with most of you. The rest of the outfit would need to be subdued and of darker tones. It's also a shame they went with the patent leather, as the natural heel contrasts the suede enough, taking it over the top.

Flared jeans, or oxford bags with a big break. The important thing about those shoes is to cover them.

If they were paying you to TAKE them, the above would NOT be true....
