    Have you considered the possibility that you are not pulling it off? [​IMG]
    They are Vass U-last. Maybe somebody will miss size theirs, and you will get a chance to not pull it off too. [​IMG] Seriously, if somebody is looking for a pair of brown suede wingtips, the Vass ones come out great.

    I wear dark brown wingtip Bals with Navy suits, and odd jackets. Looks fine to me.

    The Lamborghini guys' suit looks pretty great. Maybe a tad tight, can't really tell, but still good lines.
    Can't say the same thing about the car though. Ugh, who drives those things?

    I like the suede shoes.

    I wear mine with everything from jeans to cords to flannel trousers. Never with a suit.

    +1.

    Very versatile pair of shoes. A very good investment.

    You should be able to order them from Ferragamo at Lennox.

    Fine with most things. I have a pair by Church's with crepe soles, so I don't wear them with worsted suits.

    I had a great pair of Church's Cape Buck wingtips that were a shade lighter than chocolate. I wore them with suits, though most often with sportcoats. There is/was a pair available on the BS forum and I urge people to have a look - they were great shoes. (I recall that manton had a pair of the same.)

    I may have given away some pairs of new Weston suede monks and gusset loafers in a dark brown as the fit just wasn't that great with my orthotics (I might still have one). Those would certainly have been worn with suits.

    I have a pair of Alden plain toe suede shoes on the modified last that will be broken out this summer - it is a lighter shade and may not work with suits.
