Should your belt always match your shoes?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I heard that it should. What do you think? If so match in what way? Do people that say it should mean it should be the same colour as your shoes?

 

Thank you very much.

Nope.  If you're wearing a suit they should be pretty close in color, but they don't need to be an exact match.

Agreed. Don't need to match exactly, but close is the key.

Even I agree with the same....

Basically yes but I've found if your shoes are gray then a black belt looks better.

 

Gray belt/shoes for some reason looks horrific IMO.

For dress definitely they should be close, but I like to play with it a bit for casual. For instance, I have burgundy boots with a tan/natural welt. I typically wear a tan belt that matches the welts instead of burgundy.

they should be pretty close indeed.

I prefer them to match both in color and in "formality", meaning a buff black belt, shined black shoes and a suit aren't a great fit. A higher shine black belt is a better match. And the underappreciated "gig line" needs emphasis when tucking your shirt and belting your britches.
