    they will be worn with a greyish 3 piece suit that has a slim cut. i dont care if the boots dont go with the suit, or whatever fashion rules im supposed to be following, my fiance likes the boots and thats what im wearing. i would like to match the color, wich is shell cordovan #8. any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks!

    So you don't care about "fashion rules" but you want to match your watch strap to your boots? WTF?

    Basically every belt maker could have a belt done in color 8 as well as the matching watchband.

    Sorry if I was harsh.

    I really have a problem getting past those boots with a suit. It makes the rest of your question seem relatively minor in comparison, however, to answer your question....do not worry too much about matching. I try to match my belt as closely as possible to my shoes but I don't stress if there is a difference.

    The same for watch bands, I just match black to black and brown to brown. I don't worry about shade. If those boots are oxblood, you could probably use either. If you wore a brown strap with a black belt and shoes, I doubt most people would notice.

    If your eyes don't match, why would you match everything else? :confused:

    Have you thought about making the pant on the three-piece suit into shorts? It will help show the boots better.

    Why is everybody deriding him for wearing what his fiancée likes him to wear? If that makes her happy than that´s all that should count on the wedding day.

    If you don't care the boots don't go with the suit, then you should not have to worry about the belt and watch strap at all, I think... People might pay more attention to your garments than your component.

    Just get everything in #8 shell. It easy to find a belt and band in it.

    OP, please tell me this is not for your wedding.
