    I posted this in the "ask a question..." thread but though maybe I'd get a little more input if I started my own thread.

    I am attending a creative black tie event this upcoming weekend and plan on wearing a grey Cucinelli tux. I have three options for footwear and am not sure what I should do so am hoping someone may provide some guidance.

    Option 1 is a BC boot. Seems that most of the time I see this tux in photos the folks wearing them are wearing something similar to this. I tend to think that it looks somewhat ridiculous in the photos I've seen but for whatever reason this doesn't look awful when I look at the picture below:


    The second option that I am considering is a pair of AE Park Aves.


    And finally option #3 is to find another pair of shoes in the closet or to buy a pair this week. If you would suggest this option perhaps you could throw out a recommendation?

    Much appreciated. Have a great weekend.

    Well I'll admit firstly that I don't like the idea of a grey tux. That said, stay far away from wearing the first shoes with this tux. I wouldn't recommend the second either, although between the two they're the better choice. What about some Belgians?
