    I think the Meermin option is the nicest looking. It is fully lined with shearing, though, so only appropriate for cold weather wear.

      What one would you pick for fall/winter/early spring?

        Options 1 and 3 seem a bit more dressy than two. She shine on 3 might come off a bit too sleek for jeans. All my humble opinion of course ha. That said, I prefer dress boots to shoes 90% of the time.
        Are 1 and 2 goodyear welted? Also have you checked out Thursday Boot Co. I've heard some good things. GYW and made in USA at very reasonable price points. Happy hunting!

          #2. I don't love Frye boots for some reason but these seem fine. The partial rubber sole should help with durability in wet weather as well. I don't know how these are constructed which may be a factor if you want to eventually resole.

            My vote goes for #2. I too am not a big fan of Frye boots. I've owned on pair thus far (not the ones here) and ended up selling them at a loss just to get some space in my closet. Anyway. I think the second pair of boots look the best and should meet your needs/concerns.

              I'm going to second Thursday. I have a pair of their chukkas, but I'm planning to pick up a pair of their diplomats in the near future. The president boots look slick, and meet your profile needs, but are only $200 rather than $250.

                I like thursday boot company a lot, however, the color choices they have are either purple/brown or light tan. If they made a original red/brown leather boot (not their 450$ pair), I would buy it in a heartbeat.

                  The Meermin certainly looks the best, but I'm one to veer towards a dressier looking option generally. The Frye boots look vey casual, which is fine with jeans and chinos, but I don't consider them dress boots by any means. The Meermin boot would still work with jeans and chinos while also working with slightly dressier trousers. I like that added versatility, plus they will look better than most average boots you see other guys wearing. To me a "dress boot" is one that I would perhaps consider even wearing with a suit. Something like this.

                    I'd say that's more red/brown than purple/brown (burgundy?), but it's your dollar to spend.

                      I'd go with 3, looks the sharpest to me. Definitely stands out more.

                        These were just released today. Nice looking color.

                          Probably too work bootish for your needs (if that's a word), but colour is close and price is fair

                            Both boots above would be good with jeans and chinos, but neither is "dressy", and would not fly in my office with more tailored trousers.

                              The same is true of the Frye boots that he's considering.
