Otherwise they're pretty darn sweet.

 

I wouldn't worry about the sole channel. The eyelets are indeed a bit misaligned, but if those are seconds I would say you got away with a steal. If they're firsts, you might want to ask for an exchange. Depends on your preferences. Some people can't stand misaligned eyelets, others don't really mind. I fall into the latter category.

 

Enjoy those ...just ordered two pairs of these to see if I could dial in my size a touch better...hopefully will have a pair of these in the rotation soon enough.

The suit in question.

 

I'd love to get your opinions! Thanks so much for your help.

Depending on the shirt and tie combo, I would be inclined to go black with that suit and that initial application. (are you wearing the boot to your wedding?) 

 

That said, I don't personally find black as versatile in my wardrobe as burgundy or brown. I wear a lot of grey and navy, and don't even own a black suit. If I were buying that suit and looking to match it and the rest of my wardrobe I would probably get the dark chocolate as a 1st choice and chili as a second.

If you're married to the idea of a wingtip boot (pun intended), then I think either oxblood or dark chocolate would work. I wouldn't wear walnut shoes to a wedding.

The chunkier fabric of tweed warrants a chunkier shoe, but I would personally still stick to a shoe over a boot. Although I would wear mostly closed-laced shoes with suits, I think you could get away with the Leeds or MacNeil, given the color, texture, and weight of the fabric.

But the Ludlow suits are cut quite slim and have narrow lapels, so maybe a Bal would still be best. Maybe a bal in a more casual material like the shell strand or Cambridge or a suede Strand (if you can find one still). Or a sleeker blucher like McGregkr or Lexington. You can still find suede McGregors on the Shoebank.

I'm assuming this is a fall/winter wedding?

It sounds as though they would be worn during the wedding. In which case I'd put black as 3rd. The chocolate and chili are good choices though. Maybe bobs chili as well. The chocolate will be dark enough for the occasion while still able to worn casually. Given the light grey though I think bourbon would fit in well as well.

With a tweed suit I would assume a more of an oxford type shirt and knit tie. Afternoon outdoor wedding?

I went though the same dilemma between black and brown. But mine was a charcoal wool suit. Ended up with black.

Sized the same as my Brannock size. I have both calf and shell and same experience as usual. The shell is a little looser.

Owned a pair in whiskey cordovan briefly, sold them as they were a bit too roomy for my liking. They were and 8.5D and that size works for me in the 1 last and 5 last but I think sizing down to an 8D or maybe 8.5C would have been best in the 7 last for me. Overall just too much room.

 

I also had  2 pairs of Macneils in 8.5D that I sold off as well.

 

Brannock size is just over an 8 for me.

I sized down to a 12C in the MacNeil from a 12D. Other than these BB MacNeils (only made D's) which fit pretty well. I think the insole helps though, and being calf vs cordovan.

Oxblood or MTO a Navy.  Chocolate would also look good.  

post #57419 of 70737

Whoa, thanks for all the great support and feedback about the color matching with the suit. We're actually doing the wedding in June (indoors), but her dress is less traditional (read: not wedding white), which allowed us to play with a suit appearance I liked better. (Plus, she loved the look of the suit on me, so everyone wins!)

 

I hadn't picked the tie out yet, but it probably will be some type of green? I think that's the final decision my fiancee has landed on for the wedding color. It seems like the Dark Chocolate or Oxblood might be where I'm leaning in terms of a final decision. I appreciate all the help in making this decision. This might be my most difficult planning choice in the entire process, haha.

Would be my advice as well. It's pretty much impossible to go wrong with burgundy shell.
