The fact is that this thread should be about what is correct to do for a wedding, and many groom to be come here with pretty "set" decision that then by reading comments by other more knowledgable, change their mind. So, we should make sure they understand that a wedding in at least a suit and tie call for black cap toes, that is pretty set. The arguments that were presented this time were that the suit was too light for black shoes, what a non sense. But in general other arguments are presented that are pretty lame too. Once again, suit and tie wedding, formal enough, wear black shoes. Wear brown and you will look like a guest that did not know better, other then the groom
