Just got this suit and canvassing opinion on what style/colour of shoes to wear with it.

Also, I like the second, smaller pocket on the right; leave it tacked up, or what?

edwardian, burnt pine, even dark oak .. anything but black or crazy lolly pop colors would work.

If it were that exact construction, I would recommend a Tan or Burgundy oxford. That color would complement it well, and if you wanted to add some pinache, try an oxblood brogue.

I think a brown suede chelsea boot or a tan calf chelsea boot would look great.

Cheers guys.
Do you think it needs nothing less than a lace up?
Loafers?

Sans tie, loafers, chelsea boots, etc. are perfectly acceptable and would look great.

With tie, stay with lace-ups. Nice suit BTW!

Great suit! As to the second question, Yes, leave the second pocket sewn. I really like the look of the pocket and I doubt you will need the extra pocket to store things.

nice suit. i wouldn't button that jacket if I were you, looks a little odd with the low-rise pants. I like the shirt/suit color combo. dark green or olive would look great too.

keep each of the pockets you don't plan on using sealed.

you could definitely do loafers with that suit, the modern kind. color wise, brown, almost any shade.

The position and size of the ticket pocket are quite unusual. Not sure I like that... Nice suit otherwise


oh.. and to answer your question I would go with light color suede (beige/tan) or grey calf shoes

What suit is that, and from which brand? It looks a bit fashion forward with the slightly short jacket and lower rise trousers.
