    Question is, which do you think looks the best?

    (I know it's been done before, with regard to brown shoes, but it's a slightly different take.)

    I find it surprising that the black leather with light shirt is a popular choice, (I know the light shirt is more correct in terms of business dress), but I do think that can look a bit off with black leather (IMO light shirt is better with brown shoes), unless of course we are worried of being too 'farmer" but then again, don't the 'rules' say that a navy suit should be with brown leather, so by wearing it with black leather you are breaking the rules anyway, so why not go for the darker shirt. (I know its not very coherent, but it was a hectic day [​IMG] )

    (johnapril @ Feb. 21 2005,00:44) Searching for some shoes for your navy suit? http://bizns.nikkeibp.co.jp/cgi-bin....echnews
    Those are beautiful. Any ideas where I could get hold of a pair in London?
    No, Paris, I think. But you might ask around.
