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

    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.

    Going to the pricier end of the spectrum - I picked these (https://www.carminashoemaker.us/mens-boots/product4034) up last Memorial Day when they had a 10% off sale across the entire site. 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.

    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.

    I'm in the same boat in that I wear the 1901 chukka's and chelsea boots all the time, but I want to step up to something nicer when they go.

    I'm seriously considering these, but they aren't cheap https://www.cobbler-union.com/collec...-suede-leather

    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.

    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    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.

    I don't think that would be a huge problem since I think of a suede chukka as being an inherently more casual shoe.

    That said a lot of times when I have to wear a suit assuming it's not something incredibly formal or dour, I try to make one part of the outfit pop. So whether that be the tie, pocket square, socks, shirt, or shoes, I like one thing, and just one thing to clarify, being a bit more out there. I wish I had the need for enough suits to wear something like https://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/seas...green&pdp=true or https://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/seas...=pink&pdp=true once in awhile so the suit itself would qualify, but I just don't.

    So for me, I could put these in the outfit with everything else being conservative and think it would be fine. Granted if I was wearing a chukka with a suit it would probably be with a polo or sweater under the jacket to keep it a little more casual.

    Those a quite nice looking. I was also looking at the same boots in their "Ginger" color.

    I tried a pair of the Thursday Captains in brown and as much as I loved the way they looked I wasn't happy about the way they fit. I'm a 10.5 on a brannock and the 10.5 was too big the 10 too small.

    How would you say the chukkas fit compared to the Captains? I realize we are kind of comparing apples and oranges.
