One of my non-rule rules is that the shoes shouldn't be the visual focus of the outfit. I like chestnut in summer, but for lighter colors I tend to stick to bucks and desert boots.

I haven wore white shoes with this blue linen suit. It felt rakish during the day but I felt guilty about it at night.

Whoa! When you guys speak of "band-aid" colored shoes, I always thought of EG Burnt Pine. If its Edwardian, then throw me in the FNB camp!

Tan shoes are an enduring summer classic. I mean woven shoes for summer are an abomination, but tan?

she probably thought you were a retired, rich, eccentric old man that looked incredibly good for your 82 years of age.

What's wrong with tan shoes? What else would you pair a khaki, light grey or blue, or tan suit with?

I think a light brown leather (Burnt Pine, in this case) will always trump the tan (Edwardian) version

Well second one from the left is what I call "tan" and I believe it would look great with a khaki suit... but I wouldn't say no to the first pair (talking about colour, not the shoe itself) with a seersucker suit, either.

I was referring to the third (Edwardian) and fifth (Burnt Pine) shoes from the left.

I would wear any of those shoes but acorn, admittedly, has a very narrow usefulness.
