I'm not sure of the basis of your objection. If you don't like it, that's good enough for me, but the justifications you've given aren't cutting it. The shoes are only casual for non-Americans. They fall squarely within the realm of business wear here. And, regarding monotonic palettes, a tuxedo is monotonic and tasteful.
There's a general consensus that a blucher is a more casual shoe than an oxford, which for many would already eliminate the blucher from CBD outfit, and pairing it with double soles and with cordovan leather (not sure on this one, the photograph is not helping) is not a suitable pair of shoes for an business suit, in my opinion.
Regarding the tuxedo, trick argument, purely rhetoric though as formal wear and CBD takes different logic on the color composition. Regarding a monotonic CBD outfit, the first thing that is commented when someone combines a blue square with a blue tie is how matchy and contrived the pairing is, but your outfit composed exclusively of blue is not matchy and contrived? Not seeing any difference between the two cases.
No need to be so defensive and evasive, I's just having a conversation with you. I apologize for my earlier post if it sounded too harsh to you. Very well, I exposed my arguments and you exposed yours and, since no exchange could be had, I'm going to drop it.
Common, this is a discussion forum and I'm trying to have a discussion. which is only achieved through debate, which are composed with different points of view expressed by arguments. Perhaps I'm wrong on that one too, right?
