I think it works well, I never take coloured patent shoes seriously or think they belong in conservative suiting/dressed up looks, they look nice with casual wear and even shorts. (there was a pair of gold lanvins posted on Sartorialist that looked brilliant with shorts) I'd probably say this is my favourite look from you Brutus, I'm particular to slightly off kilter looks though and personally love wrinkles/natural looking clothing, the blue patents seal the deal for me. I wish you'd keep this same slight eccentricity in all your looks though, I think your 'today' outfit is a bit lacking in that area, but I guess its just a matter of preference. Also seriously your creeping me out with how similar you look to Neil Patrick Harris, you just need a slightly bigger/squarer forehead and slightly more defined cheek bones and it'd be picture perfect.
