i'm guessing the red-ish belt, since it bridges the gap between the strap and boot colors?

or is the tan belt the better option?

they'll be worn with jeans, tan/brown/navy pants and solid color t-shirts or button up shirts.

thanks in advance for any insight.

You're perfectly fine with these. You may also like to try a belt of contrasting color so it's not too matchy. Details on the boots please?

Both belts would look fine with the boots, IMO. I don't like for belt and shoes to be exactly the same, but I'm not a fan of contrasting ones either.

Either would be close enough, they only need to be roughly similar in shade.

instead of starting another thread...please provide you input/suggestion

For my AE Strand (drk brwn) and MacNeil (Walnut grain), should I get a drk brown or Walnut for pairing? I like the contrasting (brown family) effect but at the same time a being careful with too matchy ?


Thanks....
