Attending a wedding next week.

Is it ok to wear brown brogues (and brown belt) with a blue suit or should I go with black brogues as a safe bet?

My suit is blue and not Navy so brown does compliment it well but didn't know if it was a faux pas as I never wear suits.
Wear a light coloured tie and a white shirt, and your brown brogues will go well with the blue suit.

Brogues are a bit more casual than non-patterned Derbys Oxfords Bluchers or Monks, but still smart enough for modern day weddings where the rules of attire are more laidback.

Make sure your pants reach your ankles and you are wearing socks and you'll be fine. That wouldn't have needed saying 5 years ago, unfortunately it does now as we live in a world full of grade A knob heads.

I've paid my dues !
You are asking on here for fashion tips !!! Have you never been to a match in your life ?
Or much much worse, on Bluemoon, if you've ever been to a meet you'll see why, last time, I saw a chubby little bloke in an MMA T-shirt, bean, gravy and beer stains down the front, which was too small and too short (obviously shrunk in the wash) with his belly and back fat protruding.

Can't remember who it was, he said he was a 'small claims solicitor', he was mildly amusing though, I'll give him that.

Brown shoes and blue suit's fine btw.

If you've got nothing to do, don't do it here.

Was that the same do as the infamous coat ? The fact that all I need to put is coat for everyone to know who I mean says it all.
Match days resemble a 3 year old dressing himself and yet the OP wants fashion tips !!!!
