    In this paragraph, is Flusser referring to bluchers or balmorals? And what is the rule when it comes to wearing a brogue (wingtip) with more casual dress, such as cotton trousers and button down shirts? This is the first I've heard that a brogue can only be worn with a suit. Because I'm wearing my AE McClains today with the aforementioned combo:

    That looks great. Screw any "rule" that claims otherwise.

    [​IMG] If your suit is as some others have suggested in this thread, a "black and white" type nailhead like the above.....matching with brown may be a little tricky.

    It's a great look, one of my favourites. Go for it.

    I was wearing a pair of dark brown oxfords with a navy suit in court one day, when my adversary, a woman, mentioned four times that she couldn't believe I was wearing brown shoes. The first three times, I ignored her. The fourth time, I said, "That's true - about blue and black, but that's for normal folks, not guy's like me. I look fucking great in these shoes. I wouldn't try it, though, if I were you." I didn't hear much from her after that.

    Unless your mom is Jil Sander or Donna Karan, I would not follow her fashion advice, both in this specific case and in general.
