    I'm going to weigh in on the @Sander light-suede-shoes debate. It's a good fit but not a great one, simply because the shoes are just too attention-grabbing here. Note the length of the trousers. They are a couple of centimetres too short. This, combined with the light socks, creates a high-contrast colour block at the bottom end of each of his legs, which draws attention downward; a tendency further encouraged by the vertical stripe in the suit fabric.

    Shame, because the rest of this fit is great; in particular, the colour play between tie, shirt and jacket is really subtle and nice. But you hardly see that because of what's going on down below.

    The fit would have worked beautifully if any one of the following had been implemented:

    - trousers slightly longer
    - socks to match trouser colour
    - shoes slightly darker
    - no pinstripe in the suit material.

    The shoes are not by any means "wrong" in themselves; I'd love to own a pair like that.
