Can I Wear Khaki Suit W/ Black Shoes & Tie - Page 2

post #16 of 27
I think Navy and Black are pretty close no? We do see PG in his WAYWN shots wearing this combo with his navy shoes....i think it can be done. Yet, I must admit, I have never done it. my .02 - and PG promo.

I'm in IT and I would NEVER wear black shoes with tan or khaki trousers. That's what my AE loafers are for.

Please, please, do NOT wear those shoes with that suit.

Excuse the generalization. I'm a reformed computer guy and I've seen some real sartorial tragedies.

I find a slim khaki suit, with a solid dark tie and solid shirt, would go well with those black shoes.

afternoon or evening affair? an evening reception may preclude the khaki suit.

You may try khaki suit, white shirt black tie with brown shoe. Really its looks so good.

Thanks so much for all of your thoughts, I really appreciate it.

While I've taken to heart the comments about the color of the shoe (black=not so good/ brown=good), I'm not comfortable with a shoe any less "bulky". I think the overall bigger silhouette of a shoe like this always looks great, but I am predisposed to the style.
I find that narrow profiles do not suit my sartorial theme, so-to-speak.

Ideally, I would like to wear a light khaki suit with white shirt, black tie, and black shoes but understand this may appear dowdy or military inspired. (But I like military inspired).

Thanks again for the great advice!

Try the same shoe in #8. It is a better and more congruent look with khaki than the black shell, and may be had readily online. Or... scroll down the page (at AoC) and buy some longwings (preferably brown), which always look good. Coincidentally, they (AF104) are on the same last(Barrie) .

Okay, I'm back for a little more help.
Can I wear brogues with this suit?
It seems weird t me but obviously the council of this forum will confirm/ deny my suspicions.

Thanks again!
