Ed, I appreciate the commentary, but perhaps the edmorel school of photography (in two different light sources) failed to properly display the fact that this is a suit, not a SC/pant combo. Had it been though, your points would have totally been valid.
You are right about the shoes in this context though, shoulda been black.
Thank you for taking the time to make a detailed critique though.
Holy Moly those are bad pics if that's a suit !!! Anyway, black shoes would be better and that pocket square is a bit weak sauce but I stopped wearing squares so take that for what it's worth.
