    I grew up in Jamaica and square toe shoes were the norm and still are. Which is more suited for a well tailored suit, and why?

    First of all, square-toed and cap-toed are not mutually exclusive, meaning you can have a square toe that is also capped. As to your question, square-toed shoes, compared to a sleeker, rounded toe, are less elegant whether you are wearing a suit or not. Look around the forum, there is no shortage of threads dedicated to this topic.
