Might have. I doubt those sandals were black.
The inane prejudice against black shoes espoused by some members of this forum is boring.
3", 3.25", widths like that are not hard to find right now, and under a sweater or cardigan the widest point won't show. Those widths would probably look fine with your build, unless your head is unusually large.Personally, I like having a variety of widths. Sometimes a wider tie makes for a more interesting knot.
How wide are your lapels? More or less match your lapel width, but don't get obsessive about it. 2.75" is pretty skinny.
