    Fritzl, thank you for the response. While the quality of the shoes is great, they are not my style.

    Rikod, the dark brown suede looks good.


    Here is Will, with brown cotton and what seems to be Polo Suede.

    you're welcome. tbh, making suggestions for one of your calibre is bringing owls to athens.

    polo suede is too rusty for my taste. is will's a saddle?

    Some say shoes should never be lighter than your trousers. Have any of you heard that?

    I don't agree with that.

    I've worn walnut shoes with dark blue trousers and thought it looked good.

    Yeah I think dark brown on dark brown looks great. Suede is a good option as a little texture breaks it up but I wouldn't hate on anyone for going with a lighter suede. That said, Dark brown suede with dark brown corderouy does look great, I like the continuous texture it gives. (Just a wee side note)

    Fritzl, you are getting to be a grumpy conservative old man.

    i always was, more or less. i'm definitely not for standard answers, which are obvious but not.

    i take in account the whole appearance of the person and give my advice according to the aesthetics i can picture with that.

    referring to my answer: i cannot see the OP in slouchy schoolboy shoes, although they have a historical background in anglican countries.

    I'm not sure about the DB worn casually with an open collar. It needs the tie.
