"Yeah. They should complement - sometimes ignore one another - but never insult or match one another exactly. I love pocket squares - ain't wild about that one Craig's wearing, though. A red one looks great with a black jacket and a pale…"

"Shoes: With a navy suit you can wear both brown and black.  I wear a suit every day for my job (I'm an attorney).  With my navy suit I wear a black cap toes (Cole Haan, Nordstroms) or brown wing tips (Hugo Boss). Socks: You can get…"

"Haha this was awesome. Daniel Craig is a boss (although, I know that if I tried that it wouldn't look as good). The matching tie and pocket square does not look good.  I wouldn't do anything crazy with the pocket square. I'm…"

"RE: the pocket squares - any number of things you can do with'em. You can wear the square banker - just a neatly-pressed linen handkerchief, a la Mad Men - a more businesslike use of them. Or a plain or pattern one that complements the tie BUT…"

"Wear what you like. there's no reason why you shouldn't wear a tie-clip. If you want to wear it, then wear it. Part of dressing is having the balls to wear whatever the hell you want. "

"Oh yeah! and as far as Individuality, try Monk Shoes. Their shoes that you buckle on instead of tie or slip. Here's a picture, courtesy of google: "

"Shoes: You have a choice between brown and Oxblood (Which is a version a brown but with a reddish shade) Socks: I'd say Black or possibly even navy to match the suit, I heard socks should go with the suit in general. Pocket Square:  Whit…"

"Each of these are tough choices. Shoes: just make sure they match your belt. Socks: I generally match them with my shoes, but mixing it up may be passable. Pocket square: my grandfather always told me that unless it's a super fancy occasion…"

"Shoes: Dark brown works with navy and dresses it down a bit.  Burgundy looks good too.  Black dress navy up, and it a better look for evening. Socks:  Red is fine. Pocket square: Start with plain white linen or cotton, then work your…"

"Get dress cowboy boots, they'll take care of the 'individuality' ... and you don't need to coordinate socks.  Socks always struck me as a strange area for 'individuality' anyway. Pocket squares are too flashy for…"

"You cannot go too far wrong with nice black (polished) shoes.  Black or Navy socks might be safest.  This is an older thread on tie tacks and clips: http://community.artofmanliness.com/forum/topics/tie-tacks-tie-bars  Do you have a…"

Need some advice for accessories for a suit!

I recently got a new Navy suit that I am very excited about and I want to add some accessories to wear with it. Unfortunately, I'm not really sure about what to get. These are the accessories that I'm wondering about:Shoes: I've heard differing opinions on the shoes for a navy suit. I've heard "only wear black shoes," "only wear brown shoes." and "try something different like burgundy shoes." So I'm kinda confused on this front. Realistically though, it probably doesn't matter much!Socks: I'm…See More
