    Hi guys,

    Didn't know whether to post this in clothing+accessories or here. I figured it would get a bit more exposure here and a mod can always move it if necessary - thanks!

    Basically, I'm not sure what trousers or shoes I should be wearing to go out. I'd normally wear either a shirt, sometimes with a jumper, or a polo.

    I don't really like wearing jeans out. I have some slimfit chinos (yellow/'stone') coloured which I like, as well as some "carrot top" very light blue/grey trousers, which I like. What else should I get?

    And what about shoes? I don't have any nice black leather shoes, but I could get some if they'll go with the outfit - again, any recommendations would be welcomed. Any other suggestions? I'm not a fan of grey plimsolls really. I wear some addidas samba (suede, blue) day-to-day; they look ok but not especially smart.

    This stuff will mostly be worn going to pubs and bars, not to clubs, so it needs to be quite nice but not super smart. Any suggestions would be welcomed thank you!

    I tend to avoid black as its more formal. I'll only wear it with a suit.

    Get some brown suede shoes. Tods make really nice ones if you can afford them.

    I have these ones...




    Or for something even more casual, wear drivers...

    I don't really like either of those, and especially not the second pair! The first pair are nice enough, I see a few people wearing shoes like that, but I don't want shoes "only if I can afford them" if I don't like them that much. Any other suggestions would be welcomed though, thanks

    Ohh, I like them, thank you

    I do like wearing jumpers and chinos, and that's what I wear now when I go out (with shoes like these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Adidas-Samba...793182&sr=8-4), but I'd like a change really.

    I'll look in to those shoes, thanks a lot

    Get some derby boots or derby shoes, desert boots, or chukka boots. Brand like Loake, Trickers, Grenson, Red Wings, Roamers.

    Or have are look at Clarks Originals, Weavers and Wallabees might be an idea.

    What sort of trousers would I wear them with? I only like the chukka boots, I don't like the derby boots or derby shoes at all.

    They are actually quite nice - I don't think they're really my style though...

    e: I also like both of these, thoughts:

    http://www.asos.com/Asos-Collection/...ort=3&clr=Blue

    http://www.asos.com/Voi/Voi-Senitor-...ort=3&clr=Blue

    (sorry for the links, but the images have a massive white bit at the top, so I think this is better)

    I know no-name ASOS stuff probably isn't everyones cup of tea, but I don't mind

    Nay, that oxford shoe is a plimsoll, and the other one... is a plimsoll.
    I don't like those desert boots either, they look old, Clarks are far nicer. If you want something cheap go for Roamers.
