Cheaney Thomas Capped Derby in Black Grain Leather

In your expert opinions, would these shoes go with a dark grey Lazio suit from Suitsupply for a wedding with a white shirt and black tie?

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

or be safe and go for the single monk from Church's

I'm going to move your thread to the new Menswear Advice forum, where it will have more visibility, and where other members can benefit from your question.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.

Frankly, neither is a "classic" choice for a pair of basic shoes for a suit.  You might want to look at a black oxford (with closed lacing).  How about something like the Alfred Sargent "Hunt":

Thank you for the advice.

I have a couple of pairs in that style but as it was a wedding, I wanted to try something a bit more un-conservative.

I did try a double monk but where I have size 6UK feet, they didn't look as good as I was hoping.

Maybe a wholecut?

Sure, why not?  I like wholecuts, and they an  unusual and interesting style.  How about a pair with a medallion?

So do I, I was just about to pull the trigger on some C&J ones when the Church factory in Northampton just phoned me and said they have just had in the Church Westbury single monk in my exact size 5.5 which is rare for £200 which is half price. It was an offer I couldn't refuse...
