    It looks a little off to me personally, but I think you can make it work.

    Dont like the shade of shoes with this suit. I would also suggest a different shirt/tie combo, maybe a light blue shirt and a navy tie.

    I'd think a brown belt/shoes would go better. There is a little too much contrast between the off-white and black or something. I don't think it looks horrible, I just think it could look better. Depends what you have at your disposal.

    No. Try light brown, dirty bucks, etc. Black does not work with this summery look.

    Brown and change the shirt to add some color.

    Light suits (seersucker in particular) with black shoes and belt is a classic Southern look. Don't mind your combo myself.

    I wouldn't do it, I prefer brown. And like others have said, I recommend a little more color in your shirt- dont mix white and off-white.

    Would prefer shoes similar to the color of the ones in suiturself's avatar.

    I do like your bathtub though. Racing jacket? Not so much.

    Only if you're Ben Matlock!

    Personally, I don't like black shoes with such a light colour suit. The shoes should be tan, brown, or white.
