I wore black shoes without a suit for the first time in...well...ever.
I think they would work very well for that outfit. A really dark burgundy would also have been nice. But I prefer black here more; all the colours are either icy or steely blues, so black must mesh nicely.
Incidentally since we've been talking about Drake's pocket squares and Sugar Butch's nice sand square, here are other colors in that pattern, at $39 at Barneys.
They have the green one too, and a few other pocket squares from this season.
Yeah, I just didn't like the way the textures and colors were popping. I agree that the PS seemed to be the center of attention there when it shouldn't have.
Honestly, I agree about clags PS as well though I have to admit I didn't really notice it at first. I also like how the patch pocket is almost in line with the pattern, but not quite. It adds a bit of flavor to everything!
That jacket is pretty texture heavy and that was really visible on the way that image was taken. Comparatively, the tie and PS (more so the PS) just look flat. The tie's rigid horizontal twill compared with the almost 'wabi sabi' nature of the jacket and the 'flatness' of the PS just look a little disharmonious to me.
I'm being very critical here, mind you. I still think it looks good although I would have gone with a different PS. A darker one, I think.
All this coming from someone that can barely dress himself, so...
