What do you think about wearing the AS Herrick with this 3 piece sharkskin suit from BB to my best friend's wedding? I will be one of four standing at the wedding (plus the groom makes 5).
We are to dress ourselves. The only requirement was a medium gray suit and brown or burgundy shoes. He is providing the tie, and I think it will be a very micro-patterned medium blue Canali. It's not a formal wedding by any means. And anyone who has seen the Herrick in person knows they are dark brown and I think will work perfectly with mid to dark grey suits.
I know this could get posted in the wedding forum, but I know ppl on this thread will be familiar with the AS Herrick.
Semi crappy pic of the suede semi brogue AS Herrick. It's even a tad darker IRL.
thats a nice combo if appearances and the opinions of others matter to you. is this a fall wedding or summer? if you truly have license to dress however you like, go for something a little more, casual?
Got my Herricks back today. I am stoked, thanks AFPOS
I like that combo, but be careful not to out dress the groom.
Does anyone have experience with AS 99 last and Carmina Simpson last? I am trying to decide between these two monks. Carmina would be $100 more.
Same size with the Simpson and the AS 99.
Carminas are sleeker/lighter and the AS feels more substantial. I prefer the latter.

I am bit old school, and while a brown suede shoes is perfectly fine with grey suits in most occasions, but it's a bit too casual for a wedding, it is still an important ceremonial occasion.
Combo also works but since you're in the party, I'd turn down the dandy since the special day belongs to the couple. Moores after a couple of miles of pavement (untreated):
Is the color accurate in your pic? Looks more red than the previous entry. Either way I like it...
Probably just depends on the lighting.
Yeah, definitely one of those harder colors to describe but the redness does come out. When I get the chance I'll take a pic of it next to my Inverness and Wigmore to get a better idea of the color. Excellent and definitely not too light at all for me.
