I won't say it's a fixation, it just makes it easier to quickly coordinate what to wear, being that I can wear either the dressier or casual shoe with a similar color combination. However, I am open to all suggestions.
Also regarding chestnut, does this combination work? EDIT Oshinex's G&G Rothschilds in DG70 Vintage Chestnut for Casual: Newcomer's G&G Grants for Formal: Or these from the G&G blog:

Kent Wang's description: "Plaintoe balmoral design, the only black shoe you'll ever need. Even more formal than a...
Thanks for the compliments. I don't know if you would consider them special 8000 lasted, hollow I'm a bit of a Tom Ford guy as well:
