    even with belts and shoes? two different, but similar shades of brown is better?

    Nuts - unless you're wearing exotic skins or have your shoe inserted into your belt it's pretty difficult to tell if shoes and belt are an exact, close, or in the ball park match.

    I always get singled out to take my shoes off anyway when I'm wearing nice ones.

    whatever you mean by that. you see a lot of examples, where people buy a total match. imo, this isn't necessary. for the advanced you can play with textures as long you stay in the colour family.

    Sure your belt can be a general match to the shoes. Burgandy to Oxblood, Light tan to darker tan. You can play a bit with texture and leather types as well. Although to me there is nothing worse than a polished calf dress belt with casual pebble grain derbies. And I personally prefer a suede belt with suede shoes.

    However, your handbag MUST match your shoes, lest my grandmother spend eternity spinning in her grave!
