How should this match?

If you wear a crocodile wrist watch band, do you have to wear a belt and shoes that match?

If you wear cordovan shoes, are you supposed to match it with the belt? What about the wrist watch band?

thanks,

Trying to precisely match leathers located at three different parts of your body can be a fool's game. Try and have them compliment, not match each other. One looks sophisticated and shows some personality, the other a slavish devotion to a principle.

Shoes with belt, watch compliments them is what I do most of the time.

I try to have all my leather accessories complimenting each other, as gorgekko suggested.

So if I'm wearing black shoes, it's a black belt and wrist watch band is either black or silver (if I'm wearing a metal band.)

If brown, it's a brown belt and wrist watch band is either brown or silver (if I'm wearing a metal band.)

Nomos' watch straps use cordovan leather, fyi.
