    I like subdued version GMM. Oak brown shoes and that would be bordering on CBD! :eek:

    I like the suit and the fit is very flattering on you, but I have to say, I don't like the brown double monks and belt with it. Both seem too casual with a pinstripe navy for me (but that may just be because I'm British).

    I had the oak brown in my hand with the trees out, but thought there wasn't enough contrast. And I'm sticking by that.
    FM, not sure I agree about the belt. I suppose it's textured, but pretty subtly, and other than that, it's pretty unadorned. But I respect that's the way it's coming through and I will keep it in mind going forward.

    I enjoy meandering through different idioms. Some I do well, others not. Some jive here, others not.
    This is the vibe I was feeling today.

    The low angle makes me look more hip heavy than irl, but whatevs. Trousers are wrinkled from a long day at work.

    This is going to maybe sound harsh, but I think its worth it.

    I know what you are thinking, but you are wrong. oak brown and navy is a low contrast combination, but its a spectacular low contrast combination. Many of the best navy suit combos seen here are being worn with oak brown shoes. It is as classic and as good a combo as they come.


    What these clowns said.

    With a stellar fit like that, I'd say you're almost justified to look smug.

    Superb photo! (Shame about the narrow lapels though...)

    Great backdrop, must be really nice to live in that area!

    Soooooo cute! Congratulations, man!

    There's always something ineffably SB about your fits. Don't know whether it's your love of greys and browns, or of smooth matt cloths textures, or a that u always seem to look so relaxed



    Like this a lot CD- those slim upper sleeves seem to suit u
