What about chinos instead, please? Thanks.In fact, there's something odd to me with wearing a polo shirt and dark jeans.
And oxfords should only be worn by people going to Oxford, bluchers by Prussian soldiers, cowboy boots by wranglers, penny loafers by Norwegian fishermen, etc.I agree with the suggestions for loafers, but believe deck shoes are meant only for boating.
^^LOL...I don't know about penny loafers but deck shoes and desert boots for sure. And up here in the PNW, 'waffle bottoms', though I'd stick with tops no higher than about 6". Save the logger boots for plaid flannel shirts.
Ha ha...funny. Assuming this isn't serious.I agree with the suggestions for loafers, but believe deck shoes are meant only for boating.
Using this as an excuse to think out my position. I have not been a big fan of the darker denim overall however now I can see I dichotomy between a darker, if you will, more wintery denim and a lighter, more summery denim. I think that a darker jean feels more formal to me and starts to move out of boat shoe/ desert boot / etc. Territory. I think a nice light denim could be worn in spring or summer with those options and a polo but the darker one more of a fall winter wear with a pair of Alden indys or 500 mile casual boots.The big issue, of course, is what color loafer, etc., to wear with jeans. My jeans are all dark wash, and I recently purchased a pair of sand-colored, suede loafers, thinking they would provide a nice summer-y accent to my go-to causal outfit in the warmer months, a linen shirt and jeans. Unfortunately, I do not like the way they look paired with the dark jeans. I'm either going to find a darker pair of loafers or find a pair of jeans I like in a lighter wash (or maybe just convince myself the stark contrast between the loafers and jeans is stylish!). I bring this up because it's likely to become an issue for the OP, as well.
What are "NSTs"? If there is a glossary around here, I couldn't find it, sorry.I would generally forgo the chukkas for loafers or NSTs [...]

Norwegian Split ToeLoafers have gathered approvals. Should I get them with a rubber sole only, or would a leather sole work as well?
