Light(er) blue suit...shoes

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 


Do these black cap toes work with this lighter blue suit? Its not Navy, but a little lighter. Would a brown shoe be a better idea?

The black shoes look fine. Whether brown shoes will look better depends on your taste, the shade of brown and the rest of your outfit.

Black shoes are perfectly fine with that suit, and probably what I would wear. Burgundy shoes would look good too. I'm not so sure about brown.

What color would you call that suit? Light Navy? Charcoal Blue?

It looks like a sharkskin blue suit that I have.

You wear it for social only or business as well?

I think the shoe color depends on the formality of the event. Uber business meeting = black. Casual business meeting = brown is okay.

I'm almost always wrong about these things, but I think that shade of blue is commonly referred to as air force blue and it really looks better with oxblood/burgundy shoes than black. Its not CBD, but i think you could wear it in most offices depending on where you live and the season. But like I said, I'm nearly always wrong.

Haha

I'm always wrong too. What does CBD mean?

Conservative Business Dress.

Its often hard to see colors on a screen, but to me your suit looks to be the same shade as this. I really like it, and apparently we are in good company.

I would use any brown colour, or marroon or camel I think it's the other colour. This is my opinion or taste if you want to see it that way, but I don't use blue with black shoes. It's a personal taste of mine. I know it's accepted, but I see a lot of peope here in Mexico with this combo that I find it boring, so I never use blue with black... not even jean with black shoes.

I have a suit in that color and I do find that burgundy works best with it.

I think a Bourbon or burgundy would work better but also think the blacks looks good enough not to justify purchasing another pair of shoes if you don't already have them.

Black is perfectly fine.  Dark brown would work.  Oxblood would rock.
