post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Hi,i'm 24 Years old,my sister is getting married in 2 weeks .

I recently purchased this suit.Is a CK Slim fit(im 5’5ish,150lb,light brown skin and  Broad Shoulders/chest from working out).

I really like this combination,but my Girlfriend is a little Iffy about it.

What do you guys think?,Should i change anything?

*Navy blue Shirt

*Navy blue tie

*Light grey suit

*Dark brown shoes/belt

 

 

 

Thanks!

Im sure its fine. Is it just me or do most women have horrid taste in men clothing. Its ironic too cuz if you showed them a picture of some classic menswear they like it more than modern stuff... Idk

I once had a woman in her 30s tell me brown shoes were for old men

Thanks for the feedback. I totally understand where you coming from,my girlfriend is in her early 20's and she has some what sense of fashion,she keep telling me, to wear black shoes/belt. I feel thats a little too old school and boring hahaha,

 

She said the same thing,"Only people in their late 40  wear brown shoes with a suit",Im like What?! lol

Personally I wouldn't wear those shoes with a suit. I probably would wear black shoes with the rest of what you've got there, but at least shoes that are more dress shoes. These look like chukkas.

Do you have a link/photo to a style that you think would complement this outfit better?

What are your POV in wearing brown shoes with grey suit in general?

With a grey suit in general can be good. But navy and white stripe + navy satiny tie = black shoes. If you still want to wear brown shoes, at least something shaped more like this:

(these are obviously really expensive, but you can find some that aren't so costly and don't look like work boots)

Did your girlfriend tell about all brown shoes or these particular ones? I think these boots will not look nice with suit, you need something more sleek, either in black or brown IMO.

those chukkas are way too casual.

Well, those "oxfords" are not oxfords and those "wingtips" are not wingtips. If these are your first real dress shoes, you might consider getting something cleaner, a real oxford like the second one, but without the brogueing. Like these (unfortunately these seem to be the cheapest ones on that site that have the qualities I'm describing):

Got it,Not my first real dress shoes,but my first "real" brown dress shoes. 

 

i really like the http://ivorytowerstyle.tumblr.com/post/46592044126/my-new-carmina-shell-boots-i-saw-them-at-pitti

Thanks - those are Carmina shell cordovan boots. I like them a lot, but I wouldn't recommend them as your first real brown dress shoes either. Shell is a little bit seasonal, and boots are particular. This would be a good choice if you like Carminas though:
