    Everything can be done ,especially with the Royal cachet..
    I do love the colour of the suede above...
    They're quite stunning Gnatty8....What's the colour?


    Do you mean what does Ferragamo call the color? The pictures above are pretty true to actual color.

    I really like the look of suede with a suit.

    So generally if suede x suit is not always doable... suede wingtips x denim is fine?

    I wear brown suede wingtips and captoes with suits all the time. I find they perfectly complement the textures of the tweeds, flannels, and (to a lesser extent) linens which pretty much composes my entire wardrobe.

    I dotn' really like it with a navy blue suit, sorry guys..
    This suit is really blue ..I do prefer navy suits with dark brown suede shoes..
    Kenneth Clarke is wearing his with a worsted dark grey suit...A lot more appropriate and elegant...

    I wear these guys with suits too, but not for conservative client meetings. I don't think lighter color suede works well with suits but can be fine with separates or business casual

    I think it's because suede practically requires the pants to be cuffed, IMO.

    That but also a conservative navy banker stripe doesn't really jive with suede IMO - I may be in a minority
