Fashion Question

We are going to a wedding this weekend and DH has a navy blue suit he's wearing. Here's my issue what color shoes should he wear? Black or Brown? I say brown because I hate black and navy together. What do you ladies say?

  • black - dh always wears black dress shoes with his navy suit and i never thought anything of it so it must look ok.
  • and i think black makes it dressier for a wedding.

    This is why I hate navy.  I would go with black because they don't stand out as much as brown, so it won't be as obvious and no one will notice his shoes at all.  Brown shoes with a navy suit will be very noticeable, imo.

  • I'd personally say brown. And B does the whole navy with black all the time and I hate it and he ignores me but overall its not the end of the world.

    I KNOW! Ugh. MIL bought him this beautiful suit, but navy? Uggggh. 

    I have an issue with navy blue and black together, serious issue, but I think I'm going to have to suck it up and deal. Ugh. I am on the hunt for a black suit now...

  • Black. It will look better with the navy plus it looks dressier.

  • FYI brown shoes can look just as dressy if they are nice dress shoes. I know B has a pair that I like way better than his black which he wore for our wedding but they are lace and he is a lazy as$ and prefers ones that can slip on so I'm looking for them cause I hate his lame excuse

    Bwahahahahahaa. I love B.

    I found a really nice pair of Kenneth Cole brown shoes, I may just pick them up (although they are lace up as well, maybe he'll use B's excuse too because that sounds like DH as well)

  • I must say I am also the type that doesn't think you can't wear black with blue or black with brown, etc. There are times it looks nice together. There is no rule that says you can't.

  • Is it really that hard to tie and untie your shoes. I also just remembered they hav a bit of a heel and make a sound when he walks and he hates that too.

    I'm not a fan of navy and black in general, but I think to go with a suit it would be fine.  This is assuming he has black dress shoes and not brown??  I wouldn't buy new shoes just for this purpose.

    He does have black shoes, but I feel like he should have brown ones regardless, yanno? Plus, he can wear them other times as well...we shall see what today/tomorrow brings lol.

    Yes, my neighbor I grew up with got married there about 5 years ago.  A suit is too fancy for there.  Dress slacks, shirt and tie are fine.  "Cocktails" are cheese and crackers and fruit.  I can't remember what we had for dinner.  I am assuming they are getting married outside if the weather is good.

    Yeah it doesn't look too fancy there that's why I suggested what I did for him, but he's being difficult and obnoxious.

    LOL. Cammo Tie, classic. I'm hoping the bride wears a cammo dress!

    We are staying at the Holiday Inn Express, I'm pretty certain that's the only other one we could find that was decent close by. Ugh.

    You can get spiedies at the game!  I think there is a spiedie stand between 1st base and the outfield.
