    Khaki Linen Suit: in search of distressed brouged wingtips!



    So yeah, looking for a pair of distressed/vintage-y looking brouged wingtips to go with a khaki linen suit for an outdoor daytime event. Here's a a pic of the look that I'll be sporting:

    Going to be an outdoor garden type affair. Going for a casual vibe but still clean and elegant.


    Many thanks in advance for your help!

    The latest post about the Nordstrom sale had a few varieties of wingtips. Check it out: http://dappered.com/2011/06/the-best...-sale-for-men/

      Great suit and I love the idea for the shoes. If you have time, you can try hitting thrift and vintage stores in your area for a few weeks to see if something turns up and you might get a steal. Else, I would definitely check ebay and the sale section of StyleForum for used/vintage Allen Edmonds or Alden. Failing there for actual vintage, watch the Dappered main page for sale deals that suit your taste (last few weeks have had lots of shoes). If I were buying new for this particular suit/occasion, I would look at suede, maybe bucks or wingtips or possibly saddle shoe. If the suit fits as well as that model, stick with beltless.

      Edit: These are a steal and with the red sole are fantastic for a garden party. (I like navy, but others would work too)

        I just got a pair of casual grey wingtips from ASOS for less than $50 with free shipping and free returns (http://us.asos.com/ASOS-ASOS-Brogues/vwnb5/?iid=1478587). I am actually wearing them right now. The uppers are thin, soft leather, and the soles are thin and hard. All that thinness gives them a very streamlined appearance but there is not much (any) cushion. They seem to fit true-to-size, though I have narrower feet so you might have trouble if you are a wide. Shipping was kind of slow coming across the pond.

          Well it looks like that link isn't working. Search for the product code ZFOSH1478587 if you want to see them.
