Never really had problems wearing them with suits, although yes mainly navy and the occasional blue suit, but I think it helps if you darken/burnish the toe a bit so it doesn't scream out for attention.

I must say though I don't wear the blue stingray as much I as I should, mainly with jeans as well.

Is anyone attending the factory sale this weekend? If so could I trouble you for a proxy? I have no issues compensating you for the troubles! smile.gif

Oh yes, I remember this from a couple years ago I think. Sometimes being across the pond is no fun.

I have a few pairs of navy shoes / boots but would never pair them with a navy suit - not enough contrast and all together too much blue for my liking.  Paired with almost any shade of grey trousers, however, and it's pure awesomesauce.

Those navy Gables make me extremely jealous, and now I question where I went wrong in my life :(

Mind to post them in the wild?.  Those are pure lapislazuli color.

Thanks for the kind words! It's been somewhat of a journey going from wearing just black shoes to brown, then to tan, blue and red... And the collection keeps expanding... smile.gif
