    Thanks for all the comments. I admit you don't see many brown shoes with business suits in London. When you do - they're usually paired with awful bicycle toe shoes.

    Trust me: the only obstacle to wearing those boots with any city suit (regardless of cut) is the brown colour. I don't like wearing brown with city suits, and you're not really supposed to. Especially in London.
    I really think this only holds when in London.
    What do you gents say?

    can we get an actual pic of them?

    I'll get some at the weekend. They were subs at the C&J sale - was the only ones there. I was quite lucky I think.

    The people at C&J may feel the exact same way.

    There wasn't actually anything wrong with them as far as I could see and the price was too good to pass up.
