|So if you leave the laces untied, should they be shorter laces
I find all combat boots tend to come with fairly long laces, with a lot of extra slack. With my D&Gs you can probably wrap around the top of the boot twice with all the extra lace.
I would keep them long and just tie them loosely, let the tongue of the boot hang out if your going for a more relaxed look
|Do you happen to own any side zip boots
Yeah I got a really nice pair of J Lindeburg's from GoldenRatio1.6. I am not a fan of him per-se but the build quality was excellent as was the style
|I suspect a dressier look goes better with those for maybe a more fall/winter outfit?
I agree to a point, layering and looking more classy is usually reserved for the winter and fall, as the summer kind of makes it hard to layer. If your using sheers or light weight gear you can still pull off a classier look in the spring IMO
I dont really like the tucking in of the pants look unless the boot is high, I detest the use of ankle boots ( or around that height) being used to tuck into, just personal opinion I guess as I find it looks rather affeminate on a guy
