    Its actually a matter of Texture of the suit that is important not so much the suit its self. Wearing long wings with a flannel suit is adorned my all. take for example this thread in ask andy

    http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/f...-do-you-prefer

    notice, no one is admonishing him for his preference. theres a history behind flannel and long wings...too long to get into but i will share if asked.

    In the sartorially community, no, they would not be considered appropriate because they are considered informal.

    In your regular every day life, yes, most people do not know the "rules of men's style" and would think that they look great.

    There are some that would say blutchers are not appropriate for a suit and you should wear balmorals instead if you're planning to wear a suit. Personally I think they are fine and I sometimes wear blutchers with a suit, but you might want to be aware that there is a historical precedent for only wearing bals with a suit.

    They're not as formal as some other options, but still fine for most situations that call for a suit.

    I really like I already own a few cap-toes and more traditional wingtips, and was wanting to get something a little different, specifically the AE Larchmonts.

    Are these still suit appropriate?
