    or

    Or another suggestion? Open mind, but definitely must be a brown color.

    what's the difference other than the number of shoelace holes??? (edit- nvm guess the design continues across the bottom of the tongue on the first pair.)

    imo too pointy to wear with casual jeans, but that's just me.

    The only difference is the number of shoe lace holes as xxBurtonxx pointed out, and the design on the toe.

    Personally, I wouldn't wear either of them with jeans.

    They both seem a bit too formal to wear with jeans. I'd wear something more comfortable.

    Sorry, shoes like that, although subjective, do not go with blue jeans.

    Something closer to this is better suited for jeans.

    Hey, I like them both. Personally, I love the Church's/Barker style of shoes (I have a few pairs, which I wear regularly), and I actually think they can look very well with jeans and/or khakis and a smart shirt, or t-shirt and say, linen or leather jacket. Besides, good well-made shoes - even good formal shoes - can actually be extremely comfortable once they have been broken in.

    Basically, the first one is extremely stylish - and thus, a bit more formal. To my mind, it's the sort of thing you could wear to a cocktail party, formal launch of something (book, movie, play whatever), I'd see it as evening wear, wheras the second, although still 'smart', is a bit less formal, and so could probably be worn to a wider number of venues and settings.

    I disagree, having tried both pair on and seen what they look like. I've got pretty good fashion sense. I get compliments on the shoes/boots I wear now.

    Pictures don't really do them justice I think, thread was probably a waste. :(

    ----------

    Thanks for your assessment. Glad to see somebody else sees things the way I do.

    I'm on the border between the two because I don't know whether or not I want to be flashy with my footwear while in jeans. I think you're right, but I somewhat feel like I can pull it off.

    I voted number one but either pair will go with dark wash jeans.

    EDIT:

    Here's what Glenn O'Brien suggests shoe-wise with jeans.

    I wear jeans that are definitely a darker blue, but they aren't dark, dark wash. Though I'm planning on buying a nice pair eventually.

    Yes, as long as they're a darker blue, you're fine.

    I personally don't like denim that is practically black.

    Me either. The jeans I have are rather faded compared to their original state.

    the color is like the one in the middle:

    The thing with shoes like that is that you cannot skimp on the jeans, or the look doesn't work at all. With such shoes, jeans should be smart, new (or newish), spotlessly clean, and well-cut/well fitting.

    I agree with Nathan - in that I think that darker jeans would work better in this context; t-shirts are fine (again, new, clean, smart) along with a good jacket, be it a smart tweed, or a light-weight wool, or a linen or smart leather jacket.

    I've seen Italians (and French, & Spaniards) [men] dressed in a white shirt, spotless jeans and stunning classic elegant shoes. It works.

    I don't like either, but I guess I dislike the second one less. I dislike them mainly for the patterns on the toes.

    I agree, the jeans will make or break the shoes. You could have a great blazer, shirt and shoes and look like **** because of the jeans.

    I keep on thinking of Steve Carrell as his 'before' characters in '40YOV' and 'Crazy, Stupid, Love'. :p

    Either would look good with really dark, blue jeans, and perhaps a blazer....as long as you're middle-aged.;)

    If you're not, then the jeans need to be slim (don't go for skinny), but they don't even need to be blue. Hell, they don't even need to be jeans!

    Hmm, guess I don't have a great sense of fashion then :p
    I'm in my teens and would were a pair of shoes maybe slightly less 'patterny' than these, but my shoes are almost always brown.
    Plus my jeans are very dark blue... light blue makes you look like a chav IMHO!

    There's your problem. :D

    I don't like light blue jeans either. Don't suit me well at all.

    I don't care for cap toe dress shoes, but of the two styles you show the first one. The second has a more abrupt cut off where the laces lace up. The first ones look more polished.

    You need a good outfit to go with those shoes. Something like

    :D

    Get whatever shoe is cheapest 'cos they both look very similar
