What are the ideal shoes for men to wear with a pinstriped suit, jeans for an evening out, cargoes, casual three-fourth pants and linen trousers?

With a pinstriped suit, wear narrow, round-tipped shoes. Don’t pick shoes where the tips are too broad and round. Even narrow-toed monk-strap shoes work well, as well as slightly pointed toes. But again, make sure the points are not too long.
With jeans, slip-ons in beige, khaki and white look great. Funky sports shoes in various colours, with a thin heel, also look good.
When you’re wearing cargoes, you can carry off heavier footwear such as Dr Martens if you’re going to be outdoors. Mostly, high-tops look cool with cargoes; try brands such as All Star.
For casual three-fourth pants, I would recommend sports shoes again. But Roman-style sandals are also fine.
If you’re wearing linen trousers formally, they go best with a nice pair of leather slip-ons. For a casual look, linen looks best with loafers, sandals or casual slip-ons.
