thinking of going out like this tonight:
denim shirt (similar to this one but without the 'lines' http://www.riverisland.com/Online/me...veshirt-256095 )
dark blue chinos
dark brown desert boots
a bit unsure whether will the shirt go with the rest? also, shirt tucked in or not?
I need some new shoes to go with my jeans (I usually just wear slim fit jeans and have done so for the past few years). However, I can't make up my mind though as to what to buy next. Ideally I would like either dark brown or black...
Also, my feet are size 11. What would go best with slim fit jeans?

pt29 - Don't knock camel chinos just because they're "bog standard"; chinos and denim is a tried and tested look.
That said, if you're looking for an alternative, try a dark navy pair, preferably in a substantial twill with a washed finish. Other colours can work too; dark red is a trendy choice and khaki green suits the outdoorsy appeal of the shirt.
The way to make the denim/camel look fly is to go back to basics; the perfect, preppy pair of beige chinos in a straight or slim fit and a denim shirt that fits perfectly. It may be a simple look, but it's gold if you get it right. It seems to me that most people seem to rock this look with the top button done up. To me, that makes no sense; with rugged casual pieces like denim shirts, an undone button or two and rolled up sleeves looks perfect.
C Turbinado: Navy chinos, denim shirt and brown suede shoes? Solid. Tie the shoes in with a plaited or otherwise casual leather belt in a close colour, tuck the shirt in or don't simply depending on what looks best to you in the mirror, and you're sorted.
Like Eating Glass (like that song btw): I assume this encompasses blue jeans? Unless we're talking about a substantial pair of boots, I'm firmly of the belief that black leather shoes with blue jeans should be avoided. Most styles in brown leather, though, should be fine.
I must admit that I'm the same. I don't like black leather shoes with jeans either. It looks weird, but I'm not sure about what style to actually buy to match up with my jeans.
I've got a few different pairs of blue jeans (indigo, resin rinse etc) so I was looking for something new to go with them. I also have black jeans. I've got some brown chukka boots but they're a little old now!
