These are from Leffot's blog. Like or dislike? What about other color combinations?


What about smaller photos?

Certainly is bold. Dresses down the shoe. I'd maybe try that with a suit I have that is dark charcoal with a brown stripe/weave.

Red laces with tan or brown shoes look awesome (another Paul Smith special)

Anyone know where I can get any?

Exactly.

Also i think the blue laces with black shoes are different because they are still very dark and not as much of a contrasting color.

Why?

These are not colors that go well together in close proximity IMO. Blue or red or purple laces I could see.

Should I match my laces with my pocket square or shirt?

You pocketsquare should match your socks, and your laces should match your socks. You socks should match the lining of your pants.
