I think the color combination is great, but I'm a little iffy on the slacks/suede shoes combo. I think I'd have to see them together to have a strong opinion. bowtielover offers the worst sartorial advice ever, I am just telling the OP the 'rules' as I believe they exist. There is a joke often said in England that Americans 'wear brown shoes to funerals'. This is owing to their tendency to wear brown shoes in many inappropriate situations. You guys make jokes about our shoes? Don't you have anything better to do? No wonder the Empire collapsed.
