Your square doesn't have to (and arguably shouldn't) match your tie perfectly. Any kind of burgundy would work fine, or any other colors in the tie (like the eggplant or charcoal you mentioned). A white linen, or even better a beige/light grey/cream/off-white/whatever silk square to match your shirt would also work. Additionally, if your suit has any checks or stripes, you could match your square to the colors in that.    It really doesn't matter that much, as long...
As far as shoes go, I recently picked up a pair each of used dark brown and black AE Byrons off of eBay. They're not PAs, but they are conservatively designed captoe oxfords. After a new pair of laces for the brown shoes and about half an hour polishing, they look like they're new, minus mild wear on the soles. Oh yeah, I paid just a hair over $70 for both of them shipped. If you want to save some money for other parts of your wardrobe, that would be my suggestion.
