I have a Navy puppytooth tux with black satin lapels... Where do you guys stand on that? I think that would look great with black shoes, although my favourite with that particular ensemble is my Navy tassel loafers.
Hmmm, I'm not sure about that one, Pins! For me, the brighter the blue, the easier it is to pull off with black with it as you get more of a contrast between the two colours. But it would seem odd to wear brown shoes with jacket that is navy and black. It's probably the rare occasion I'd go with black shoes, just for balance. But the navy loafers sound a good solid bet too.
