Agreed on all points:
I don't find that DB flattering in that picture.
I don't think the picture posted is 'dark navy', so if your jacket is dark navy the darker trousers would be even more appropriate.
My tastes are very traditional, so black shoes only for an evening event.
With blazer and dark grey trousers in the day, very dark brown shoes only in my case. I don't wear suede, but have seen that well-executed.
No doubt the American posters will now debate how to avoid looking like a security guard for the next five pages - as a Limey, I've never understood this association!
