    For those of you that would not pair these shoes with navy, what color suit do you think would go best with these shoes? I assume gray?

    I actually think brown shoes looks much better with blue than with gray. I wear brown shoes with my blue suits fairly often but almost always wear black or merlot with my gray suits. I supposed brown can be worn with gray, but I think black or merlot looks better. Plus, gray suits provide an opportunity to wear the black shoes, which I don't like with much else.

    The brown shoes-with-blue-suit-look seems to go best IMO when you are wearing a brown or tan tie.

    Brown also looks good with brown and tan suits, of course, which, while shunned by the populace, are the mark of a true stylish man according to Nicholas Antongiavanni.

    You have to be situated some way in a picture. It's much better than the attention pose I see for suit critique pictures. That picture just makes me LMAO cause he's got that big ol' grin on his face and looks like he is fun.

    Umm, yeah, it was kind of a joke. Myke does some variation on that pose in most of his pics; hence, "JankyPose(tm)." [​IMG]

    This will look great and (unlike when wearing black shoes) people will notice and comment on your AEs!

    I actually wore those very shoes with a navy suit at my wedding.

    It looked fantastic.

    Sorry, I'm new here - is there a general consensus on wearing navy with black shoes?

    Navy with black shoes is uncontroversial. I prefer #8 (burgundy) though.

    Black shoes are not looked highly upon in this forum though for conservative business dress I often see black as the only pairing with a navy suit.

    I just got the Fairhavens...the older version of the McAllister...in what I think is walnut. They are definitely darker in person, look like yours. I totally want to pair mine with my navy suit! Great look!

    To the OP:

    WHY NOT?

    I would unhesitatingly wear walnut A-Es with a navy suit. I don't own any walnut A-Es, but I have worn the similar chili and chestnut colored shoes with navy suits and slacks with some frequency. I would deem this combination too sporty for a funeral, but otherwise fine. Very Italian, I'm told.

    These look great with navy and I'm sure they'll look great with a med grey as well, no worries

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I went ahead and grabbed a pair of the AE Strands in walnut for $190. At that price, why not?
