I have similar shoes, you don't need to get decked out because you can rock shoes semi-casual.

I usually wear them with dark colored jeans, causal dress shirt or a nice sweater with a pea coat or trench on top.

More mileage could not be had from a similar boot in brown.

Brown footwear is not appropriate for even semi-casual attire in the evening, the venerable 6:00 pm rule.

The only exception to that rule may be Summer evenings, where they probably could be worn till 9:00 pm.

I agree with Jah on possible combinations; dark blue jeans with essentially anything semi-formal on top.

Brown shoes imo are hard to pull off that's why I only own one pair of brown shoes.

Why do you find that?

I actually find brown shoes more versatile than black shoes. Currently the brown shoes I have are Ferragamo's - wingtip oxfords, 2x pairs of loafers (one narrow, one boat-loafer style but more formal), and brown suede loafers (narrow). They have yet to fail me since they always complemented whatever I wear. If I go to work, they obviously work there. Even on casual (slim jeans black/blue, chinos, dress shirt/golf shirt, sweater, cardigan, vest, all kinds of jackets, etc.). Simply put, I can't find any flaw in brown shoes.

I'm assuming you wear slim pants, so I don't quite understand how they don't work for you.

Traditionally, brown shoes are not considered appropriate to wear with a black or navy suit. In a workplace that prefers more conservative dress, myself and others would still follow that rule.

Well the thing is I haven't been wearing dark jeans or black pants lately so I can't really wear brown shoes with say grey chinos. That been said tho, I have worn a grey suit with brown shoes and it looked pretty good but still not a fan of brown shoes to own more than one pair.

There are a lot of traditions that have either become antiquated or simply impractical. Traditionally, weddings and the most formal of occasions meant morning dress and top hats, but you don't see those anymore.

Even in the most conservative of workplaces, I doubt if anyone would even bat an eye if someone wore a pair nice dark brown captoe balmorals.

In a conservative workplace, the senior staff will still almost exclusively stick to tried and true colour combinations: black shoes, black suit; black shoes; navy suit. If a young new hire switches up black shoes for brown, along with other more contemporary choices, they'll attract attention to themselves for making more bold fashion choices, when they should be trying to stand out for quality of work.

I'm not saying brown shoes don't look attractive with a black or navy suit, I think they do. In my experience, they simply wouldn't serve a person working in a conservative professional environment well. I always consider who my meetings are with when considering my clothing choices, and I've been served well by that practice so far. You're welcome to differ in your opinion.

Hardly, my internet use consists of Revscene, Facebook, and a sport related forum. I've not read any rules on the internet, they're just common knowledge among my social circles. If I'm going out in the evening, I instinctually feel brown shoes look out of place, regardless of any unwritten rules.

It probably has to do a lot with who your peers are in the workplace.

I believe that as long as you look well-dressed in any sort of way that isn't ridiculous with flailing orange everywhere, then it's acceptable by professional standards. The way you dress can affect coworkers' perception, but ultimately, as you stated, your quality of work and the type of persona you portray are the majority portions of what they really care about.

Your rules are fine, but it seems like the professional world is becoming more accepting of ideas that break the traditional black everything + white shirt. Even the most sound rules can become less relevant as times change - gotta adapt.

I had the same track pants shown in the picture below but they ripped near my knee so I'm looking for similar track pants, slim fit but tapered at the bottom. Any recommendations?

Nice, where did you purchase them from? And Rick Owens are nice but too expensive for everyday wear.

I like something like this as a summer look better.

Spoiler!
style come and go, thats how fashion is. Rolled up pant leg with no sock loafers were huge 2 years ago, now it's more about rolled up pant legs/shorts with long shin socks + loafers. Corduroy is huge, also long ties with tips tucked into the pants. Are they attractive? prefers on taste. But new trends come and go and sometimes resurface every decade or two and becomes super popular and be deemed as "the look" among fashionistos/nistas. Doesn't mean the general public like/accept it.

I remember when baggy pants used to be the thing in highschool, but now it just looks rediculous. However I'm sure it'll resurface again and become the thing again in due time.

Anyone know of shops locally where I can find a slim-fit peacoat?

Topman and Club Monaco jackets are sized so large.
