New Shoes... what Suit goes with them?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

So I just bought a new pair of shoes... but am now wondering what to wear with them ;)

 

Do you think a dark-navy suit will work? (They actually look darker than in the picture...)

You can only wear those with green suits.

Those look lovely. Are they Lobb?

 

Anyway, you can certainly wear those with navy suits, but med to light gray would also work, as would shades of brown. Personally, I think brown shoes with a charcoal suit is very doable as well, but some people would disagree with me on that one.

Yes, Lobb... and actually my first brown shoe ;) - I work as a lawyer and usually dress rather conservative, but got bored of black shoes and really like those.

 

(Actually, I also fell in love with a very dark grey-black pattern John Lobb shoe, but not available in my size, and I guess I would probably end up wearing them with jeans... )

I love 'em too, but I'm not sure that's a great choice for your first, not too mention one-and-only, brown shoe. They are fantastic, but the "museum" brown color (that's the sort of "mottled" or "burled" brown look) is pretty distinctive. If you were hesitant to jump into brown, well, you picked a flashier shade than most brown to land on; the good news is you picked an excellent maker and model, so let's roll with it...

If they landed in my collection, I would have zero problem wearing them with navy (medium or dark), grays (from medium to charcoal, maybe even lighter than medium too) and brown/tans (depending on the color shade/hue).

If I may suggest, look to add another brown shoe just so you can get some rotation in that area. Regardless, don't let these hold you back - get them into rotation and enjoy!

Thanks ;) I am already on the lookout for another 2 or 3 pairs, but I just dont like most of the "normal" browns...

without a flash on those shoes they probably look pretty conservative. nothing at all to worry about.
