    I think I prefer the cut of this one....(double helix brand)

    What colour boots work with a blue jacket? Asking for a friend.

    Black, or Wolverine's blue 1000mi.
    I plan on wearing with navy or black sneakers. I guess tan would work, or white....anything you'd match to a jean jacket.

    Been there, too.

    Get both. You will be happier. For a time, at least.

    Not a bad idea... I should do the same. He would get the colour right (I do have one on the way and more that I want to do... it never ends :))

    Almost everything, black and brown work.
    Blue in a different shade is a good option.
    Burgundy as well... and if you're feeling adventurous red or even green.
    Let's not forget gray.

    I can't really think of a colour that wouldn't work...

    I have a navy blue Maxwell on my screen at the moment ready to go, but I'm not brave/rich enough!

    Anything that you'd wear with denim as per above suggestion is good. I'd only be wary of navy in case it got too matchy-costumey.

    This perfectly encapsulates my feelings about shawl collar jackets. I'm surprised no one looked at that photo as they were putting it up and didn't think 'really? we going with this?'

    In what sense? You don't like the jacket? I think the jacket looks great in isolation, though the photo with, what four inches of midriff between jeans waistband and jacket hem does not, in my opinion, show it off to its best. Granted, Joey Ramone used to wear his jackets like that, but only before he could afford something custom made long enough for his 6'6" frame!
