How to pick the right shoes for any color suit

Whether you’re buying your first suit or you already have a closet full of them, it’s important to know what color shoes go with what color suits.

To answer that question, we’ve created a handy graphic that spells it out for you clearly and distinctly. Keep in mind that this is a baseline, and there are certain shades of brown or tan that will look better or worse with certain colors of suiting. This graphic will still keep you safe from any egregious missteps, however.

Commit it to memory – you’re going to need it.
