Charcoal worn casually - black or brown?

Hi. Another sartorial question needing a quick response...

What's best with a charcoal suit worn in a casual setting (probably tie-less), black or brown/burgundy shoes? My guess is black; now that I think about, maybe that's the only answer?

Quick replies would be great.

Thanks,
John

It's a non-vented charcoal 3-button I got thrifting; there is a Lord&Taylor tag inside, but no actual manufacturer info. Sized 42R by the tag, but it's been tailored, and fits in exactly the slim way you suggest, as I am usually a 46R. A hot suit, really.

Burberry french-cuffed shirt w/red/maroon stripes and some antique cufflinks to add a little flair.

Black plain-toe AEs. Slick.

Thanks for the advice, LA.
