I have both a charcoal and a navy suit from Theory (Xylo NP is the model) and I'm looking for a pair of shoes to wear with them. My first and only pair of dress shoes are black Alden cap-toe bal's (mainly for interviews) and I was thinking to go with brown derby shoes in order to get some variation in style and color. The specific shoe I was looking at is this Crockett & Jones Draycott. Putting aside the difference in quality of Theory and C&J, would derby shoes look alright with a slim suit? Otherwise, is there a different model or maker you'd recommend as a first pair of brown shoes? And, since no store near me carries Crockett & Jones, would anyone who's seen the "chestnut burnished calf" color in person be able to comment on it?
