    Hey all... I was trying to figure out what shoes to wear with a suit I will
    be wearing to get married in and I kept finding my way back to this forum.

    There seems to be a lot of great opinions here, so I wanted to see what
    you thought about what shoes would look best with my suit.

    It's a khaki colored with white pin stripes, linen suit (beach wedding). I can't find
    a pic online, but it's Ralph Lauren if that helps anyone.

    In my head I kept picturing white shoes looking good with it, but now that I
    bought a pair, I just don't know if I'm feeling it.

    Here's the shoes I got: http://www.journeys.com/product.aspx?id=208122

    If you need to see a picture of the suit, let me know and I can upload one.

    Thanks!

    Beach wedding? How about bare foot?

    I was thinking about that. My bride doesn't really want me to go barefoot,
    plus we are having a reception back home a few weeks later so I
    will be wearing the suit again.

    These should tidy up that suit of yours.

    I like those... I cant find anywhere to even buy them though.

    Would white bucks be better than the shoes I bought? Or should I
    not go with white? Maybe a cream, or just go with something darker
    than my suit?

    How about a pair of Grey distressed Jack Purcel with no socks and the cuffs rolled up?

    Then at home, wear a pair of suede buck?

    I think the suede buck idea is great - but wear them for your wedding too, looks sharper than the loafers you posted and is sure as hell a better alternative to those Lobb-Aston monstrosities.

    Yeah, I love the suede buck idea, too.

    What color do you think would look the best? My biggest
    trouble has been with color.
