    Total newbie here. From my research I understand brown shoes with khakis is a no-brainer. I only have 2 pairs of brown shoes right now, and neither one feels right to me with my pants. Here is what I have:


    Pants (not my actual pants, but this is basically the color)

    Shoe #1

    Shoe #2

    I especially like Shoe #2 (Penguin) since I prefer a more casual look, but man I just feel like it clashes completely with the pants. Not sure if it's the shade of brown or the material.

    Do these combinations look acceptable to you guys? I can post photos of me wearing them if necessary. Also, does it make any difference if the pants were corduroys in the same color above?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's all informal stuff so mix and match is fine.

    heh thanks, those ones I posted were just an example.

    GBR, so you think I'm good? I feel like I need a dark chocolate brown shoe
