Brown belt would be great, as the welt is brown. Olive reads brownish anyway, and any brown can match to brown.Highly considering the Mercer loafer in olive suede and the brown suede belt; plus a couple of shoe care things for sub $150.
My question: what can I pair the olive suede with? Does anyone how the Mercer loafer fits? Thanks!
Really, you could get away with 3 belts (I generally go for 4): black for blacks, dark brown for browns and burgundy, light brown/tan for light colors, (burgundy as fourth if you must).
Alternatively to matching welt color to belt, you can match or contrast pants. Ignoring black, if dark colored pants (charcoal, navy, dark brown, etc) you can wear a dark brown belt to slim/make look taller by not splitting up your torso. You can also use this technique to emphase another part of your outfit like a light tan pair. Wear a tan belt with lighter colors for similar effect. If you want your belt to be the focal point, wear a tan belt with navy, etc.
Hmm. I would have expected similar to the Randolph (78 to 79)That olive Mercer can pair with browns very easily. Light colored linens in the warmer weather. Heavy textures in the cold. The fit is like a slightly generous 65 last.
