    Yeah I was thinking likewise, but then I'd have 2 pair of brown shoes and no other color. Isn't that somewhat of a waste? I really like brown shoes but does it fit to many outfits?

    Definitely a loafer. But seeing as how the shoes pictured are eccos, I'm guessing those are out of his price range. What's the budget?

    Spot on mate, my budget is not as wide as I am 18 y/o and studying.
    I'd like to have as cheap as possibe, but can range up to about 90 euros.

    If you are dressing casually I see no reason to wear black shoes. Especially loafers.

    Spot on. My budget is far away from the loafer up there (checked the price up). My budget would range up to 90 euros max, but I'd love to find a cheap nice pair since I'm 18 and studying, no income really.

    Brown fits pretty much any outfit, especially more casual outfits. You'll find that many people on this forum don't own a black shoe.

    Check out what a tailor would take for "shortening" the shoulder-width by like an inch or so, and If you think it's worth it then take this one.
    Not much else I think needs to be altered


    EDIT: but I agree with what someone else said, that the shoulders on both jackets look a bit odd

    Look for a driving loafer. If you're 18, it'll fit your age well. It won't last long, but that's true for pretty much anything within your budget.

    Thanks Offmyrack - I'll take some more pictures with the shirt tucked in, and a few with all three buttons buttoned up as well. Thanks for your opinion on the blazer, too.

    Black is fine for dress shoes. Loafers are casual shoes. So a black loafer would have an identity crisis.

    Okey, yeah I've seen alot of brown shoes. Personally I really like the colour, and it seems to blend in to many situations. Cheers!
    Okey, thanks :) Although I don't see alot of difference between the driving loafer and the shoe im wearing currently, except it has shoelaces.
    Aha, I gotcha :)

    Actually, how about a loafer thats closer to the gray look? Dark grey, light grey? Medium grey? :D Maybe beige?
    What colours are acceptable to fit several outfits?

    For something like that you might want to ask in the streetwear and denim forum. It might be slightly out of range for here in terms of price and style.

    Oh, so it doesn't match the casual style, I assume?
