    Great look Eliod. Love the contrast between suit and tie.

    You are right. It's a challenge to find the right tie for this. I'm looking for a dark bordeaux wool or grenadine.

    Thanks, Pliny!

    I wasn't so sure about these shoes, but I was afraid black would make it too sombre/severe. What would you suggest?

    I am usually not a fan of black shoes but here it would have been perfect.

    Black, burgundy, navy or dark brown shoes. Basically anything other than what you're wearing right now.

    Of particular prominence are Acridlamb's darth vader shoes and Acridpoppy's interest in the first dance.

    Shoes r excellent IMO with that suit, just not with the black tie and the argyles and possibly not with the white shirt. chestnut shoe needs a lighter sock and non-black tie.
    With that tie I agree with Anden that black shoe would b classic a la Bond

    Mazel tov, Sheepy!

    Elio, I think the shoes are fine with this suit. Black would work, yes, but that doesn't make your choice wrong.
