    @Jordan


    While at university (the leather is much more of a hot caramel in person, much nicer than in that picture in my opinion). Sort of inspired by the leather Purcell boots he wore in the Madagascar scenes of Casino Royale. A sneaker/leather boot hybrid:

    And out and about in public (not this brand, but I have heard good things about this pair and they are almost a dupe for the pair in Quantum of Solace). Chucks or another boot type would be good, too:

      brown shoes with a black polo?


      Doesn't that violate cardinal fashion rules or am i living in the past?

        The rule about brown and black is generally restricted to matching leathers. So, for example, if you're wearing a pair of brown shoes, you should wear a brown belt as well. But it's perfectly acceptable to mix brown leather and black textiles (black leather with brown textiles is a little harder to pull off, but can also be done).

          Hey BenR. A little off topic, but how did those canvas shoes from AEO fit you? Are they true to size?

            I normally wear 7.5 or 8 (kind of in between). I sometimes size down to 7 for large winter boots and sandals. AEO doesn't have 7.5 as an option so I sized down to 7 to wear them sockless or with thin socks, and they aren't too small. I'd say they run somewhere between true to size and 1/2 size big. If in doubt, I'd size down.

                @Jordan Well, Bond ignores that rule anyways. He wears brown shoes several times in Quantum of Solace with a black belt and black jacket. Tune it however you feel works for you, though. I just really like his crisp and clean, casual looks.
