Washed/distressed brogues with suit?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I was curious if a well made leather pair of brogues that are washed/faded will work with a suit, or if it is like mixing oil and water.
These were the shoes in question:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&_trksid=p4340.l2557&item=330744176775&nma=true&rt=nc&si=Reea8Md4LaQ9iAJ9I8ohuVH8leU%253D&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWAX%3AIT&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc

Are these restricted to casual? Or could they work with a charcoal or grey suit?

All opinions are helpful, thanks.

I can totally see this with a causal suit e.g. Cotton, linen

Not so sure about wool worsted suit

Might work with seersucker.

I agree, it would look good in casual wear.

Casual only, if at all, though I can't help but think that anyone who buys pre-distressed shoes is a bit of a poseur.
