    Whats the hesitation with burgundy shoes? One of the safest plays out there IMO.

      I guess it is more figuring out how to add a burgundy shoe with crossing paths with other shoes I own. Some people are okay with owning the same shoe in multiple colors but I like to branch out a little more. I have quite a few brogues so maybe a some sort of cap-toe, adelaide, or 2 or 3 eyelet derby.

        Definitely get a burgundy. Color #8 boot/chukka would be my recommendation. I just bought these, http://i.imgur.com/UXHMLSx.jpg?2 http://i.imgur.com/S7fsf82.jpg?2 but had to return them as sizing didn't work for me. Can't go wrong as, IMO, burgundy is the nicest color with grey suits.

          Trying out the new sportcoat I got with my suits, paired with navy pants I think it pairs with the other blues nicely:

                That blue is perfect for a suit after navy and charcoal.

                Shoes aren't new but a little over a year old. Carmina Semi-brogues in brown on the Rain last which I bought while I was in Paris last year: http://www.carminashoemaker.com/mens...ue-brown-10051

                I tend to not be sale driven on shoes so wait for what I want. There are some AEs on sale but the only shoe I want from AE is the University in Chili but none in my size. My wife said I should get some monks and I have been eyeing a 2 or 3-eyelet derby. Still undecided on color whether it should be in the red hues, snuff suede or something lighter, or something funky.

                My wardrobe is pretty much complete with a new one in one out policy for my work clothing though that Conrad Wu tie was a gift and didn't adhere to the policy. God I love that tie.

                  Thanks! I thought it'd be out of my comfort zone, not being a 'traditional' navy/charcoal/mid-gray, but I think it turned out great and will be a great addition for this summer with its lighter coloring (without being fully seasonal)

                          [MENTION=14616]CJMichaelRay[/MENTION] have you ever considered buying a tripod. When you raise your arm up it bunches the shoulder, detracting from the beautiful soft structure of the Hudson. Also, try and take your pictures in natural light. Smart phones take wonderful pictures if the lighting is right. When lighting is not good the pictures won't be very sharp, as we are seeing here.

                          As far as the outfit goes, I would classify it as excellent. It's really a shame that the pictures aren't better.

                            I've definitely thought about getting a stand or something for taking photos, and the pics are also suffering because I'm using a 4 year old refurbished iPhone (lost my old one in a very drunken night). Thanks for the feedback though!

                              I actually just remembered that I brought my iPad today and its case folds up and can work as a bit of a stand. Still not the greatest photo quality, but better.

                                [MENTION=14616]CJMichaelRay[/MENTION] huge improvement. Sorry for being critical, I just thought you could hugely improve quality pretty easily.
