    I have some long black very smart brogues. Not sure they'll got with the charcoal flannels though?

    Of course black and grey go together.

    The bow tie overkills this outfit for me.

    When I imagine meeting you in that outfit, I cant see myself assessing the outfit as a whole, but rather look at the individual constituents.
    I look at the navy velvet SC, then notice the bow tie, then go over to the PS and finally look at the shoes.
    To me, an outfit needs to work together instead of consisting for several different lonestanding items.

    I am not sure, if you get what I am trying to say, but basically odd items are fine, but not too many and you got to many imo.

    Brogues aren't great for evening either. Do you have an unadorned pair of black shoes?
