    Denim Shirt

    Posted in 'what should I wear this with' thread but didn't get any replies so trying in here.
    I bought this denim shirt at the weekend...

    .
    .....but unsure what to wear it with.
    I obviously want to avoid double denim so blue jeans are a no-no. Are black jeans my best bet? And also what footwear would go with this? I have sandy coloured desert boots but is there something more suitable for wearing with black jeans?

    Black jeans in my opinion are more no-no than blue jeans. Beige, grey or khaki pants will be a better choice. Denim+Denim combo is nice too, if you wear different shade of jeans from your shirt (dark indigo jeans maybe). Brown shoes or boots will be the safest choice for denim shirt style. But, I would wear clean white trainers or burgundy monks for fun.

    Can't a denim shirt pretty much be worn in the same situations as a blue chambray would be? A good combo might be with burgundy slacks and brown brogues. I think desert boots would work as well.

    Although I can't say I care for the manufactured rips/tears in the shirt...

    I'm not keen on the rips either but was the best quality shirt I could find without paying over the odds in All Saints. At the moment I'm thinking this shirt with dark indigo jeans and dabs desert boots.

    Black jeans would look absolutely fine, probably better than indigo IMO.

    Ooh the rips...I think black jeans would look better with this shirt than indigo jeans would. If I were you, I'd actually pair it with light black chinos (and white or Nike's sneakers) to kind of counterbalance the heavy vibe of the shirt. This denim shirt + jeans + sandy colored boots would overdo a bit, IMO. Let us know how you end up wearing it.

    I've got black denims and grey Nike Blazers so will possibly give it a bash like that.
