PEBBLE GRAIN CALFSKIN is considered less formal than a smooth calfskin, so does it work with a business suit? Meermin even states it is "country" calf. I like other parts of the shoes, but only going to wear them with business suits in an office setting

Official answer - Yes, its a less formal leather.

Real answer - Depends on your office. With many of the abominations that people call shoes today, just having leather is a step up. That said, smooth calfskin is what you want for conservativel business dress.

A meaningful answer would require you to provide pictures of the shoes and the suit in question. (An idea of the setting in which they'd be worn might also help. But pictures are vital.)

The link I provided is the shoes I am referring to. I am an analyst at one of the Canadian bank.

Yes, without a doubt, pebble grain calfskin is definitely considered less formal than smooth calfskin, in the business world.

 

Having said that, if you are not in a front office/client facing role within the bank, there is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing pebble grain shoes. However, if you are, best to follow your seniors and not attempt to stand out from the norm. It could spell the difference between an exceptional appraisal and an average one.

I wouldn't recommend those shoes for business dress with a suit in the banking industry.

 

A cap toe oxford is a fairly formal shoe, but the pebble grain is informal. It is a discordant combination IMO. 

On the other hand pebble grain would work with a split-toe derby or a longwing brogue, for example.
