Got a great deal on C&J Spectators, but don't know what to wear them with!

    I recently came across a pair of Crockett and Jones Hampton Spectator (Tan and White). They appeared to only have been worn once or twice and were priced at $100, so I couldn't "not" buy them. Needless to say, I don't think I have anything in my wardrobe (other than seersucker) to wear them with. While I know that I can't wear them until spring, I would like to be on the lookout for a suit that would complement the shoes. Any ideas? Below is a picture of the shoes for reference.

    Cream or some other off white slacks or even light/pearl gray slacks come to mind. Very nice by the way. I'm not terribly keen on spectators but those are handsome.

    Those are beautiful shoes! And I think you're right in their being best for spring and summer. They should look terrific with your seersucker, and I would think they'd be a natural for any cotton poplin from mid-olive to anything lighter, such as tan. I automatically think of these paired with a suit, or at least a sport jacket and dress slacks because they're so nice. And I think anything that is mid-tonal to lighter can look great with them. Earthtones, olive, greys and even mid blues. One exception to wearing them with lighter colors would likely be among earthtones. I could see these looking great with the right chocolate brown.

    Enjoy them!

    Those Spectators are absolutely stunning and to my eyes, were made to go with seersucker; trousers, sport coat, or the whole shebang...a suit! At $100, it appears to me that yopu got a real deal! ;)

    Beautiful shoes! You could wear them with basically anything summery. I typically wear mine (AE Broadstreets) with seersucker and linen
