    I wear a lot of chinos and need a pair of perfectly balanced mid brown (not too dark but not too light) SUEDE derby shoes. I need them to work with every color of chinos I have because I have every color under the sun lol. Gray, brown, tan, olive, navy, burgundy, etc.

    I want them in suede for some reason. But are suedes too casual for dress shirts?

    Post your favorite derbys when paired with chinos and jeans!

    I have my mind set on half wing tips or quarter/half brogues. Unless, you guys post a undeniably beautiful pair of plain brown suede derbys, I can't imagine it would look charming.

    I wear Brown Suede Ludwig Reiter three eyelet "Spitzderbies"
    They are very well-made and not inexpensive. Unfortunately,
    they dropped the last that fits me, so another pair for me would
    be a special make up at 100 Euros extra. Base price around 700+ Euros

    Imagine these in suede.
