    The normal default choice for any grey or blue suit is black. Barring that, if you're feeling casual, very dark brown or ox-blood. Everyone can find exceptions but I'm talking about the safest option.

    Some will like the look you've chosen-- it's not really classic but only you can decide if you or your fellow partiers will care.

    i guess i should ask what other people are wearing to get a better bearing on it.

    but yes, i prefer to go for a safe option. I think my roommate said he has some shoe polish that will make the shoe a bit darker, but not to the degree of dark brown.

    i think if i can't find a dark brown shoe that looks good or cheaper than what I paid for the cole haan i will go with the shoe polish option.


    right now im still looking for a suit example that has my suit and shoe color to see what kind of shirts and ties i can combo with.

    i should have taken this picture earlier.

    what do you guys think?

    too much for a wedding? it seems like the event to me its like semi casual semi formal? whatever it is, i just want to play it safe. that is probably the best thing im looking for right now.

    Those shoes, I wouldnt wear then with that suit. Certainly not to a wedding. But do what you want, you're the one that will be in it all night.

    The pulling in the vests is so bad I thought they had lapels.
