    I have 2 pairs of chesnut-colored shoes that I have never worn, 1 EG captoe brogue on the 202, and 1 Santoni FAM split-toe - I'm not really sure what to wear with them...what do you all recommend?

    Do you mean what colors can you wear chestnut with? I wear them with navy, mid to dark gray, olive, and beige. Almost anything except charcoal.

    For me, just about anything else you'd wear in warmer weather.

    A navy suit with sufficiently bright companions. Light greys. Linens of all sorts. Seersucker, etc.

    Heck, I think they look fine into early fall.

    Today I wore my chestnut AE Fairfax with my Corneliani charcoal suit with copper pinstripes. The color of the pinstripes picks up the color of the shoes and looks quite striking. The combination wouldn't work if not for the color of the pinstripes.
