There's just something so classical about the 202.
Great shots Wurger!
I get it. I'm not quite so bound by CBD orthodoxy - in fact, dressing in a suit and tie is really my personal choice in this country. I'm a very small minority. But were I in a city/banking/finance environment for instance, I think I'd have the same experience as you. Black shoes are correct business dress, where correct business dress is valued.
As it is, I will probably add a black shoe or two for variety, but in my case with a lot of odd jackets and non-CBD suits as regular work-wear too, I'd probably be wearing your brown quarter brogues regularly and with delight.
