I do not currently own any white bucks, but if the situation warrants I might invest in some.

I honestly do not know what else would be appropriate for a blue seersucker suit. I have recently purchased these.

Any advice as to whether these would work, or if I should just go ahead and buy the white bucks would be appreciated.





Thank you, sirs.

IMO those would work fine with a blue-striped seersucker. On the occasions that I don't wear white shoes (whether nubuc or leather) with my seersucker suit, I pair it up with light brown shoes.

I would like to know everyone's thoughts on this as well. I have similar shoes to the above pic as well as some white Polo sneakers, don't know what to wear with a newly acquired Seersucker.

Also, not to highjack the thread but what is the best pant bottom to go with? My pants are flat front but I am leaning towards going with a cuff at the bottom unless I can be talked out of it. Thoughts are appreciated!

These are very nice but I would prefer a lighter share with seersucker. Something a bit more casual: bucks, corespondent, saddle shoes, or maybe loafers would be nice. Leather and canvas corespondent in a tan shade would be very nice.

I really like these shoes...

I wear my chestnut calf, AE Coltons (just a shade or two lighter than the shoes pictured in the OP) with blue/white and/or Lt green/white seersucker. Going for the really casual effect, I have also been known to wear brown boat shoes wit the SS! :eek:

I would only wear brown shoes with seersucker that is brown/white, tan/white, or brown/tan in color. In the last case you probably shouldnt wear white shoes w/o any white to pick up.

If eschewing white shoes with blue/white, grey/white, green/white suits, go for black shoes/belt.

I would stay away from 2 tone shoes for the most part, as well as contrasting collar shirts, keep it simple, the SS is busy enough in contrast.

Repp ties seem to work well with SS

+1 on the black shoes with black belt. It gets around the dilemma of what belt to wear with white bucks, although I think braces are the answer. I'll even wear black bit loafers in less business-oriented settings. I've also seen tan bucks work nicely.

Why not have both?
Just because I hate to buy (as does my wife) a pair so shoes that would go with only one suit....unless of course I buy more seersucker suits.

I'm going to wear shoes similar to the ones you have pictured, but I'm also most likely going to be purchasing white bucks so I'll probably rotate.
I might have to do the same if I buy more than one ss, but for now (and based on the replys) I think I will stick with the Strands. Thanks to everyone.

White bucs are handy for summer wear in general, so they would be more versatile than just with a seersucker suit (eg, khakis, linen trousers, reds). They're also (relatively) cheap. However, the semibrogues would work very well with seersucker if you're dressing it up a bit (I like to do this, too, sometimes), and would also be quite versatile with other suits and sportcoats. They could also be worn year 'round. A lot of it depends on what your wardrobe needs otherwise.
