    I have white bucks, dirty bucks, loafer and other shoes, but what about a pair of Blue Suede wingtip brogues? I think it looks pretty cool? Opinions?

    I wore blue suede derbies with a pair of white linen trousers and seersucker jacket yesterday. It worked well IMHO. I'm not sure I'd wear them with a full seersucker suit though. It might look a bit too blue.

    Absolutely, blue suede and seersucker is an excellent combination. :nodding:

    Here's a comparison for you:

    This photo was an entry in a Friday challenge from ages ago (summer suits??):

    This one was last week's Friday challenge (bold ties)

    Now you decide which looks best.

    I admit that I got the whites to fit in with that classic tradition of 'seersucker and bucks' but I personally think the navy suedes look much better, to the point that the bucks are almost unworn and I'm thinking of moving them on (Florsheim size US8, accepting offers!!)

    And finally, I got slaughtered for my choice of PS in last week's pic and welcome thoughts as to what would have worked better!

    Yes, the blue suede oxfords went well with a solid medium pink tie,white shirt with the seersucker. Thanks
