    Hi Guys, I have found an awesome summer suit very similar to this here http://monthlymale.com/mens-stylish-summer-suit/ and was wondering if i should wear brogues, loafers or monk shoes with it? Its a nice style suit perfect for my mothers 50th and now i need help deciding on what style of shoe? I was thinking black monks but i have seen some nice john lobb loafers on the same blog that i really like. Please help. Thanks, Joe

    The items in the picture do not constitute a suit. That's simply a jacket and trousers and quite casual at that. For that, tan or brown Loafers would probably be fine. Double monks are so last week. With an actual suit, oxfords or derbies would look better.

    I'm not keen on brogues with a summer outfit and so it'd be down to loafers to dress down the outfit or monk straps to dress it up depending on the formality of the do

    Never heard of the vendor so no one can say whether the merchandise is best described as crap or otherwise. Given that it is a summer suit, mocs. are as formal as you need be. All the others are far too heavy for summer.
