Possible New Suit + Tips

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi All

I have tried on the below suit and I am pretty close to buying it.

 

http://www.julesb.co.uk/shop-by-262/mens-264/working-professional-266/two-piece-travel-suit-720442.htm

 

However I am just unsure as to what shirt tie combos work best and whether black shoes would work with it as its a lighter blue.

 

This would also be my first Paul Smith suit so would appreciate any comments on the suits he offers.

 

Cheers

 

Dan

Shoes:

Wear a nice pair of brown shoes. They always look sharp with a navy blue suit.

Here's how it looks:

Shirt and Tie combos:

White shirt black tie (like the guy above)

A red tie with either white shirt or blue striped (like these men http://swipe.swipelife.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/power-suit-robb-report-main.jpg)

-1. I'd wear black shoes with a navy suit (or any suit).

Extremely poor advice. You should learn more first.

This thread is a mess. Don't wear black shoes and don't wear a white shirt with a black tie with a navy suit.

Black ties are for funerals. Black shoes are for work, or smart occasions.

Seriously, you can wear almost anything. Blue is such a versatile color.

Please, don't listen to mccatemiddleton.

You'd be a fool to spend $695 on Armani shoes. Heck, they don't even sell half sizes. There are so many better shoes in that price range.

I definitely agree, a dark brown suit would work.

Who wears a black tie and white shirt with a navy suit? 

 

To the OP, the combination and shoes depend on the situation and time.  If going semi formal, try a white spread collar shirt with a french cuff and colored tie. With my navy suits I tend to wear dark purple, red, blue grenadine, and silver satin.  Finish with a pocket square. 

 

If you are wearing it in the day, any combination or dark brown to walnut shoes will work.  Merlot always looks nice with a navy suit.  For the evening and really in any situation, black shoes are appropriate.

Look about in the street or where you work or frequent and see what others do if you cannot determine this for yourself.
