  • Traditionally, black shoes went best with navy and grey trousers. However, dark brown shoes can also be worn with a navy suit and may even make you look more sophisticated. Always remember that lace-up shoes are the best type of shoe for a suit.

      Brown look bad with blue.

      Venus1485, read Kim Siver's answer. It's all about being "sophisticated." You also have to know the different shades of blue to figure out which type of blue goes best with brown shoes.
    • ReiSan
      No blue suit goes with brown shoes.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReiSan, keep in mind that skin tone plays a huge part when wearing brown shoes.
  • Recent trends have gone towards wearing Dark Brown shoes with a Navy Pin-striped suit. Black can be worn, but the brown tends to look a bit less stark and adds a sense of warmth and familiarity.
    • Venus1485
      Trends are usually tasteless, like this one.
  • Personally i wouldn't even go as far as wearing the navy pin-striped suit. However if you have managed to pull that off (make it look hot) then congrats to you, but other wise... eww (p.s - this is coming from a 16 year old girl, so dont let what i say affect you too much)
  • Well, you could go with the standby Black shoes .... OR; go to a real hip shoe store and buy yourself a pair of Blue Suede or Blue Alligator Shoes ... to be stylin' 'n Profilin ' ...
  • Flannel.
  • trainers. Be the 10 doctor. If you don't get my answer it's because you have never heard of doctor who. A tv series that rocks.
  • Pumps or penny loafers, butt hole knee with the right hat. Don't forget the hat, and make sure it's red, red and floppy. Your welcome..;+
    • ReiSan
      Penny loafers are too casual to wear with a dressy navy blue pinstripe suit.
  • That is a very dressy suit, so black shoes are best. Brown is too casual and looks bad with blue too.
  • whatever color you want to wear
  • Black or cordovan dress shoes should bed worn with such a very dressy suit.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Pinstripe suits were once dressy back in WW1 and WW2.
    • ReiSan
      They are still quite dressy!
    • Jenny Rizzo
      ReiSan, they are a blast from the past.
  • Black dress shoes are best.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Black dress shoes with a pinstripe suit is horrendous.
    • ReiSan
      Brown shoes with a navy blue pinstripe suit are horrendous,.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Who said ANYTHING about brown shoes in your answer? *Facepalm*
  • I wouldn't suggest a color, because pinstripe suits are extremely unpleasant and old fashioned. They date back to the 1910's: https://vintagedancer.com/1900s/edwardian-1910s-historical-mens-fashion-and-clothing-an-overview/
    • ReiSan
      They are still considered dressy at the office. They are not unpleasant or old-fashioned at all. Men have worn them to the present.
    • Jenny Rizzo
      Since you are Old School, I can understand where you are coming from. lol
