Khaki Suit. What shoes?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I am wearing a khaki suit to my cousins wedding. I am planning on a solid, light blue shirt and a solid black tie. What shoes and belt would I wear with that? Black? No belt? Should I go with a solid blue tie in order to wear brown shoes?

Let the shoes speak for themselves. Wear chestnut or museum browm.

i don't think a khaki suit is very appropriate for a wedding. My image of khaki suits is an item more to be worn as a casual suit, with softer round toe black laceups or even sneakers...

but yeah the chestnut would be a good recommendation for something dressier. goes well with the blue too.

I would only wear the khaki if it was a daytime our outdoor event. I think either a black or brown show would be fine but if you go brown, definitely go with the navy tie and not black.

Normally, I would wear a good blue suit with a fun shirt/tie combo, but the reception is outside, at a country wine inn and in a barn (no joke) somewhere in VT (near Quechee sp?) in late May. My cousin requested fun and fashionable, not conservative. It is what I like to call faux-casual. Casual settings, fancy food and decor.

Dirty bucks? Or some light brown. For sure no black I say.

Yes. Or a slightly more outrageous tie to go with brown shoes and belt.

Khaki suit + dirty bucks = good stuff. It could hit 80 in NY today, so I decide to declare summer season open.

Don't wear a belt; wear suspenders. It will dress up a khaki suit for the wedding. I agree with the chestnut brown shoes.

Your look does look great and classic.

But it also makes me wonder about a khaki suit and black tie to a wedding for the OP.

IMO try to wear a different suit if you have one. To me even a nice odd coat (like a blue blazer) would be preferable. And if you have to wear the khaki suit to the wedding, do not do so in a black tie. I just don't see that looking very good.

If you want to look like a GQ ad, just wear light brown shoes, and have the socks be a shade in between the shoes and suit.

I like brown suede shoes with a khaki suit. For me, dirty bucks are a little too close in color to the color of the suit.
