What verstile shoe color to go with navy and charcoal suit?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Let's get the basic black shoes out of the way.  What's next....brown? walnut?

 

Also, it's a given to get a belt of the same shoe shade....right?  Does a brown/walnut color belt break the navy/charcoal color flow of the suit?

 

Thanks.

In my opinion, nothing equals black.

However, if you want brown, get the darkest brown that you can. Almost black.

Then again, make it easy and get black.

Thanks.  I mean what's after black lol

 

Eventually, different shades of brown will be added to the wardrobe...just wondering in terms of versatility...what order is best when building a wardrobe.

Perhaps a dark tan or mahogany color.

In terms of versatility, dark brown, oxblood and chili will all safely go with those colours, although they would be considered slightly less conservative than black.

Thanks for the welcome.

 

Sounds like Burgundy is the way to go for now.

 

Any thoughts on the belt question?

black is more versatile, though.

Burgundy and oxblood are more versatile. In the half light, burgundy will appear almost black and will compliment a much wider range of suit colours than black will. I will admit to being tired of black shoes at this point in time and find other colours more interesting. There will always be a place for black shoes but why not have more fun where possible?

Allen Edmonds Weybridge in Chili, a personal favorite. And another vote for burgundy/oxblood.

Assuming black is out of the way, I would say brown first, then burgundy, but I suppose it depends on what you need it for and where you live.

Black should be worn with black or dark grey only. Black and navy looks pretty clumsy. Go with a burgundy or chili.
