Graduation clothing

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello all. Hope you had a great holiday. I will graduate this spring and I have started to think about what to wear. I intend to purchase a navy suit but I don't know what kind of shoes I should get. I have surfed the net a little and found these shoes from C & J: Would this colour function with a navy suit? Pediwear says that they got the fitting E in stock: what does that mean in plain english? Medium, wide, X-wide? Anyone who knows? I'm thankful for all answers.

Great-looking shoes. Will definitley go with navy...A "warmer" color shirt and tie combo would make your ensemble really "pop"- e.g. white shirt, gold/orange/lime tie. What's your hair, complexion, and eye color to determine if the above color suggestions will work?

Those are some beautiful shoes. I've been lusting after them for a while. They would look very sharp with a navy suit.

British E width roughly corresponds to American D width. It's a medium width.

I am usually very fond of dark brown shoes with navy or grey suits, but in your case I wonder. Is that a graduation from school or university? Do you wear an academic gown? It might a bit more boring, but I think for that sort of a function a black cap toe might be a better bet. I do not know what shoe style you already have. I believe there are three shoes that should form the backbone in any man's collection. Black cap toe balmorals (oxfords), Medium to dark brown full brogue wing tips, Loafers in the color of your choice. Once you have these shoe types, then splash out and become more extravagant, go for a whole cut (as in your picture), for a Norwegian or for whatever takes your fancy. Just a suggestion.

Steve B, jcusey & bengal-stripe: Thanks for the answers. Steve B: I love your suggestion. I'm quite pale though so I believe there could be some trouble with a white shirt. bengal-stripe: I love suggestions. We will not wear academic gowns and I will graduate from school not university. I felt that it would be a little too formal with black shoes but perhaps your right. I don't own a pair of black formal shoes so it would be the most rational purchase. I saw these shoes on Pediwear:   Do you find them more appropriate? Swedes. In Stockholm, where would you buy formal shoes? Götrich or NK? NK tends to be quite pricey when you compare with the net and abroad in my opinion.

Are those the Weymouth model (handgrade)?

Hi Isak. Götrich is just as pricey as NK. The only difference is that NK has both Church's and Johnston & Murphy, while Götrich has only J&M (and Tod's, but I'm not sure if you will find formal shoes from Tod's). Check at Hans Allde or Gabucci as well. /Mr Sweden
