It's fine... I've been in stores and witnessed guys go to extreme lengths to match shoes and belt.

I've seen on shorter guys where they tuck the small blade into the trousers and let the wider blade hang at belt level, which looks elegant.

From the Sartorialist:
Polo is having a MTM event right now where they wave the cutting fee, so it's the same as RTW prices. I'd look into Chan as well if that's your speed, however I haven't seen anything good come from there.
