I wear a suit 2-3 days out of the week and trousers/dress shirt the rest of the week. I'm moving up from the cheap shoes I wore in the past. I've decided on Allen Edmonds and would like to get 2 pairs to start, but would be open to 3 if I absolutely have to. First off, most of my suits are dark shades. Dark charcoal, light charcoal, medium gray and navy (no browns yet, but I do have several shades of tan/brown trousers) I'm in love with the Walnut Strands... so I think that I'll definitely get those. 2nd pair, I want a nice pair of blacks that I can wear with most of my suits and I'm assuming that PA's are my best bet. So... am I on the right track here? Do I need some sort of darker brown shoe? If you were starting out with those suit colors and needed to buy 2 pairs of AE's, what would they be (and what color for each)?
