What shoes with oatmeal/neutral linen blend suit?

Hi all,

Could do with some tips here. I’ve recently bought a MTM neutral linen blend suit- has a little cream in the colour, a little oatmeal.
I don’t own a pair of shoes that work with it and really struggling.
Most colours “go” I suppose, but I want to look elegant and considered.. I’ll be wearing it to a wedding for the first occasion, so definitely want a bit of formality.
Normally my favourite shoe brands are ones like C&J, trickers, Edward Green for something special, Alden and Grensen.
I’ve never bought loafers before but am considering for the first time but open to suggestion.

Would love any thoughts or image ideas on style and colour.

Thankyou in advance.

If you want to skew it formal, brown oxfords. If you want to skew it less so, brown suede loafers.

Nearly any hue of brown works, but avoiding reddish tones or very dark brown might be best (extremely dark brown oxfords would likely be too conservative for such a suit)
