Shoes To Go With New Suit
Just bought this suit from M&S http://www.marksandspencer.com/Slim-.../dp/B0085HYXW6
Im thinking a brown brogue would go well...any thoughts?

Brown could work with that - the suit is a light enough blue for it to work. Make sure they are a dark rich brown, however - otherwise they'll be the most noticeable thing about you (which looks odd).
Personally, I wouldn't go for brogues. Brogues are more informal than plain shoes - originally country wear. The fact you're wearing brown shoes already makes your shoes more informal than most. I'd suggest a plain pair of oxfords or derbys.

I actually think brown brogues could work although I also like @Wolf's suggestion of going for oxfords. I can picture loafers paired with your suit too.

Dark brown oxfords; the colour is a bit too deep for anything lighter and brogues would look out of place. That is a business suit so it needs business shoes.

If you want to wear brown then definitely go dark brown.
The rule i always go on is that shoes should be darker than the suit.
