    Business Casual shoes with Blazer/pants

    Good morning/afternoon folks.

    I'm a blazer/sportcoat and pants guy for work. Recently I've fallen in love with the Cole Haan Grand line (I have a couple of the white bottom style - since well women own the red bottom market)...In any event they look great with dark traveler jeans or chinos, but with charcoal pants I'm teetering a bit. I should note I like them because not only because of look but comfort (I travel a great deal). Thoughts on shoes that you have worn that would suffice with say charcoal pants that are as comfortable/stylish?

    I've seen the Clarks Nubucks/ J&M XC4 line or perhaps even the Cole Haan Wingtips Grands?

    Thank you in advance of course.

    Charcoal slacks? Yeah, how about some basic black or chocolate brown brogues?

    Thank you, HB. I was thinking of something less conservative.

    If you like the Cole Hahn Grand line--well, I couldn't see myself wearing any of them with a blazer except the Washington model.

    I think you can wear these with charcoal.

    If you're looking for another brand, let me know and I'll be happy to hunt for some. I love shoe shopping.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    Allen Edmonds has these comfort shoes on sale. You could wear the black ones with charcoal and black. Less than $170 if you sign up for the mailing list "collector" thing.

    If the pair of pants you have are a true charcoal, close to black in color, I would stay away from British tan, walnut, or any other light color. Those colors pair well with lighter greys, but are not the best match for darker greys. I would recommend going with a darker brown. Burgundy/merlot/Oxblood can also look good if you are looking for a little more flash without being flashy.

    Out of these 3 choices I prefer the Clarks. The thinner sole is less "sneaker like" then the other two.
