Again it's just personal preference but when I'm in business casual gear - sports coat, slacks and tie - I'm just as likely to grab my black wingtips as my brown ones. More likely if I'm wearing dark gray or charcoal slacks, or if it's a cloudy day, or if I want to be on the less casual side of business casual, or if I know I'll be going from work to an evening event.

I own two dozen dress shoes. Not a black longwing to be found.

Ok, I would probably get more use out of these:



They're boring but that's probably not bad for 3rd shoe pair.
Thank you so much.
Maybe longwings for 4th or 5th...

I was in need of a better dress shoe to replace a pair of black Calvin Klein slip-on's that handled 10 years of wear and were recently resoled.  I went with the Alden shell cordovan's in black.  I like the look of them on my feet, its a very substantial shoe.  I was debating a burgundy or a ravello pair, but I've been victim of the black pants, brown shoe fashion no-no and figured a black LWB was safe and very flexible in more formal wear and also in business casual.

The color of our shoes means very little today, unless you work under a very strict dress code. Guide your decision on what you wear on a daily basis.

Black shoes, in my opinion, goes with black (oh rly?), grey (medium and dark), olive and dark brown.
