A suit is always a safe bet, but they might want a blazer and khakis or something, given the way the terms "formal" and "semi-formal" are abused. True, that. I just attended a wedding reception last weekend...
I have Chestnut Veal Craftsmen (ordered about 6mo ago, when the AU$D was strong, damnit), and they are nowhere near as dark as the boot pictured above. Which is great for me, as I wanted a more mid-dark-brown, which is what mine are, and actually hesitated on getting them since all of the online pics show a very dark brown. Go figure, eh?
I got a box of assorted-size brass ones from forum non-favorite, Jos A. Bank - $22 minus whatever for sales/discounts.
Anything at all, so long as it ties in at least a little bit with the overall tone/colors/patterns you're wearing. Or something that willfully does not. Go wild. Or not. Just please don't wear white socks.
Not even a little bit, although my step-father did pick up a new suit for my wedding, and seemed pretty excited about it.
Polish, wear, and enjoy

That yours are a smaller size and therefore would attract more buyers, I imagine that you might get $250. Then...
A pair of cordovan MacNeils that I wanted sold on Ebay for $227 last week. IMO this is too much, but obviously someone thought otherwise.
