    Shoes To Go With New Suit

    Hi,

    Just bought this suit from M&S http://www.marksandspencer.com/Slim-.../dp/B0085HYXW6

    Im thinking a brown brogue would go well...any thoughts?

    Thanks

    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.

    as above

    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.

    Quick debenhams search brings up http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_084010340173?CMP=OTC-GOOGLEPS&tmcampid=28&tmad=


    as always, remember to match the belt!
