Yes, that what I meant with my first suggestion. I only talk about suede smile.gif.

Should I give you my credit card now or later?

Off the top of my head (I'm writing from my office), my current suits (all three-piece) are these (listed roughly in descending order of dressiness) :

 

I.  These will be the hardest, as by most standards they're traditionally considered the most conservative:

 

      charcoal worsted

      several navy, both solid (some worsted and some woolier) and pinstripe

      mid-grey pinstripe

      glen plaid

 

Yes, I can imagine a (dark) brown captoe suede with either the mid-grey pinstripe or the glen plaid.  And so long as they're darker than the navy, I can imagine that, too.  I'm Having difficulty imagining suede with worsted charcoal, however.

 

II.  These will be easier since their fabrics make them less dressy, but I don't wear them often enough to justify shoes solely for them:

 

      light grey flannel

      brown herringbone tweed

      summer weight cotton tan

 

Currently my dress shoes are the usual suspects:  captoes, wingtips, in black, brown, and cordovan.

 

Anyway, thanks, guys.  Very helpful, as always.

 

Cheers,

Party at a friends menswear store tonight. A good opportunity to get some use for my latest purchases.

Really like that EFV.  Is the jacket brown? It almost comes off as a some type of burgundy in the picture, which would still be pretty cool.

It's definitely brown, with a blue/white check. Even though it may look like it has a collar gap, I can assure it doesn't. It's the best fitting SC I've ever found in RTW.

Fred your fits are all very 'formal business' but they are so well put together and elegant. Kudos to you.
