I just bought a suit and was wondering if these shoes would be ok for the suit, thanks.
no. slip-ons are too casual, I think those would look plain sloppy with a suit.
edit; holy shit lurker
Can't go wrong with Park Avenues
and PAs are a decent enough choice.
What about these? I am more into the square shaped toes.
those look better than the last ones, but I think you'll find that most people here aren't a fan of square toe shoes. If you like them, then go for it. I think square toe just looks plain bad and tasteless.
They might look bad, but they're hardly tasteless.
square-toed ftl if you're going high class
What suit are you trying to find shoes for?
I think shoes are a very important part of a suit. The difference between small details can be a dealbreaker for me, and a square toe is one of the things I think can ruin a suit. I just think square-toe looks tacky, and I'd go far enough to call it tasteless, as it makes a suit look less like a suit.
I'm in the dark about dress shoes. Why the hate for square toes?
I've never liked them, so I thought it was just a personal thing, but a lot of people seem to hold the same idea. this article gives a bit of insight:
Yeah...I think I am going to go shoe shopping sometime in the next few weeks and look around. suit kinda looks like this, it's navy blue with subtle pinstripes, 2 button
hm, i see. thanks for the link.
Is this suit for an interview? work?
How much do you want to spend?
Hmm, I'm not a good bargain hunter. If you can find one that looks similar to the shoe I posted, you'd be fine. Just stay away from slip-ons and squared-toes.
Yeah I'll try. Hopefully I can catch a sale at macys or something and save some money.
Where'd you get your suit?
A lot of things look bad in general. A lot of bad things can look even worse, even tasteless, if they're worn a certain way.
Worn with a suit, it just looks bad. Worn with true religion jeans and an ed hardy shirt makes it tasteless. I just think "tasteless" is a strong word.
Maybe I'm just being too technical...but that's just my opinion.
These look pretty nice for $165.00.
square toes suck for driving. especially if you wear 13's and drive a manual
