    Yea I just rolled up the pants for the pic.

    Belt....yes black I suppose. I normally wear my shirts short and out so no one can really see my belt.

    My thought is that I would wear navy shell as I would black shoes and wear a highly polished black belt. After all, who's going to notice the difference unless I'm in the correct light or they get close enough to notice a difference. Although, I would prefer a navy belt if I could find one!

    MrBrioni bought both the Adalaide and the spectators, pics in this thread a week or two back.

    Under the tag "store" they list all incoming shoes, http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/store

    I'm sure you could if you wanted too. Besides these seem pretty subdued to me compared to a number of others out there. The color contrast doesn't look that bold to me.

    Now the others I bought just a bit ago are a bit more bolder. But the color contrast is greater. However I think these will work real well with an entirely different look in mind.
