That looks great. Screw any "rule" that claims otherwise.

If your suit is as some others have suggested in this thread, a "black and white" type nailhead like the above.....matching with brown may be a little tricky.

Where are those double monk straps you've posted from?

It's a great look, one of my favourites. Go for it.

I was wearing a pair of dark brown oxfords with a navy suit in court one day, when my adversary, a woman, mentioned four times that she couldn't believe I was wearing brown shoes. The first three times, I ignored her. The fourth time, I said, "That's true - about blue and black, but that's for normal folks, not guy's like me. I look fucking great in these shoes. I wouldn't try it, though, if I were you." I didn't hear much from her after that.
