I agree. I always wear black with my charcoal suit. If you want to wear brown, stick to a darker shade. The contrast between light brown and charcoal will "pop out" too much and it will be the only thing people notice.No, I routinely wear brown shoes with charcoal and I think they look great. Just be careful the shoes are relatively darker in color, or you will suffer the dreaded running shoe look at first glance..
Walnut Evanstons with a suit :thumbs-up::thumbs-up:. I would like a pair to wear with my grey suits.I'm a simple guy, I typically only wear navy and charcoal suits. I want to spice things up w/ some brown shoes. I have my eye on walnut calf AE Evanstons and or Bel Airs. Should they be relegated to navy only?
In a relaxed setting dark brown is all right in the day or outside the City...
Personally, I don't know what is MORE elegant than a pair of cordovan oxfords that have been shined to a mirror finish.....with navy or gray.Like you my suits are charcoal and navy. My dress shoes are black and burgundy. I just think that burgundy is far more elegant than brown and especially looks good with navy. Having said that, with my charcoal suit I always wear black shoes.
