  1. What about a seersucker, or khaki spring/sumer time suit? Or a white suit?

    • Hey Luke. Generally speaking, you want the color of your shoes to be darker than the color of your pants, with the key exception of wearing black on brown. With a seersucker, given that it is generally of a lighter color, you could go with a mix of white and tan or just tan colored shoes. For a khaki, I would go with an earth tone, as would be the same with a white suit.

      For the seersucker, if you want to add color to the outfit, I would generally reserve that for the tie or the belt. Keep the shoes a lighter, earth tone. More flashy guys will opt for pastel colored shoes or blue shoes – something of that nature.
