I am thinking of pairing these double monks with medium gray flat front dress pants, lavender shirt. The monks are techinically "olive" but they're brownish grey at a distance.

My question is whether this ensemble makes sense. The monks look great but maybe too unique and daring for these folks in northeast Georgia There is a party, in a house, everyone else in jeans and Robert Graham shirts.

Thank you.

Well, in Atlanta the shoes would be considered a bit unusual but far from revolutionary or outrageous. But as you know, NE Georgia is geographically very near Atlanta but about as similar to it as Paris is to Fresno.

That being said I still doubt the shoes will cause a riot or raise any eyebrows that won't be able to control themselves. Personally, I'd be more concerned about wool trousers and Lavender shirt if you are quite certain everyone else will be in jeans. But you know your audience better than I.

How far into NE Georgia we talking here? Blairsville? or even further afield?

It's some town south of Andersonville, SC....again the suede monks will get a lot of stares. Wondering if its worth it.
