Those look lovely. Are they Lobb?   Anyway, you can certainly wear those with navy suits, but med to light gray would also work, as would shades of brown. Personally, I think brown shoes with a charcoal suit is very doable as well, but some people would disagree with me on that one.  
    Thanks for the advice, but apparently they're out size 11    I sent a mail to Carmina directly. Lets hope that works out...
I can't entirely get this shoe out of my head:   http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/news/carmina-80249-oscar-grain-calf   Could anybody advise me on sizing? I'm an 11.5E UK in EG's 888 last, and an 11E UK in most CJ lasts...
Quick question: who's Ron, and how can I get him to do this for me? Because this is beautiful!
  I've got basically the same list of sizes as you, and I ordered a pair on the U-last in 45.5, that ended up being about a half-size too small, but that's mostly because I have relatively wide feet. I'm unsure how exactly that translates to the New Peter or the F lasts, but I doubt getting anything smaller than 45 would be wise.
I think the austerity brogues are MtO only, but I'm not 100% sure.
The link you probably meant to post:   http://the-shoe-snob.blogspot.nl/2012/06/shoes-of-week-crockett-jones-archives.html   Also, you're right, they're beautiful...
I saw somebody post some picks of a suit he got from them on Reddit. I was not particularly impressed with the fit. The problem is, of course, that I can't tell whether that's because the guy screwed up his measurements, or because BlackLapel screwed up when making the suit. But neither would entirely surprise me.  
Thanks. I was actually looking at these, if it matters: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index.cfm/Shoes-Color_8_Cap_Toe_Boot_293.htm
I've got my eye on a pair of boots by Alden, could anybody give a rough indication of sizing? I'm about a 11E (UK) in Crockett and Jones, for what it's worth.
