    I'm seriously considering these, but they aren't cheap https://www.cobbler-union.com/collec...-suede-leather
    I like those a lot--and I'm a big Cobbler Union fan overall. And I wonder if that pink-reddish stitching would make it hard to dress up.

They're a sleeker chukka, so definitely works with a suit or just wool trousers. Made of high-quality suede and on the well-known Rain last. I like that they've got Carmina's Tomir sole (rubber half sole), which can be replaced by a cobbler without having to resole the entire shoe.

    I posted a pic to the What Shoes Are You Wearing thread a few weeks back:

    I also considered the C&J Tetbury, but it was a bit pricier and, from photos online, seemed like it may be a bit too sleek to work with jeans. I may be wrong on that part though.

    I have the Thursday Boot Co Scouts in dark olive suede. I wear them a lot. I have a couple of pairs of dark grey jeans that I wear almost every day during the wintertime and these are my go-to boots with those jeans. So far they've held up well and are very comfortable. They're my second pair of Thursday boots; I also own a pair of Captain's in the natural leather.

    A photo of the Scouts from the Thursday website. My jeans aren't quite that fitted.

    Should also add that this is Carmina's U.S. site, so no need to deal with foreign currency. And they offer free exchanges I believe if the size you pick doesn't work out. Straight returns are $35, but if you buy through PayPal you can get something like $30 of that back with their return shipping credit.

    These seem to be getting hard to find in my size (10.5), but Tommy Hilfiger Gervis Chukkas are great and the dark brown suede looks close to your color. I have a pair in blue and really like them.

    EDIT: It looks like they make Gervis Chukkas with different soles. My pair has a red rubbery sole, but it looks like they also come with a crepe sole and a dark rubber sole. Not sure the crepe sole will last for daily use.

    Loake Pimlico. Mass drop sells them, EastDane (Amazon) does too. They’re a bit on the narrow side, but otherwise pretty good value for $$$

    Jack Erwin James chukka looks similar to me. Easy returns if they don't fit.

    I read somewhere JE offers a recrafting service, but I can't find it on the website.

    That is a very good reason to look elsewhere.

    I picked up these from Amazon in 2017. I wouldn’t recommend them at their current price. I got them for about $85. If you put them on a wish list, the price is bound to drop.

    That makes sense. Their more casual look is a point in their favor for my needs.

    Yep, they are a good value. And they are not currently available from Nordstrom.
