    When I think Sharkskin, I think late '50s/early '60s. With that in mind, I'd go with simple black calf leather split toes. Something sleek. Something like this:

    Hi

    I think it would depend greatly on the suit's cut. A more modern cut would certainly rule out wingtips... The one suggestion you have is good since it would tend to emphasize the suit, not the shoes. Another option would be those zip up boots, but personally I hate those.

    That taps out my sartorial knowledge.

    Something black and sleek. Maybe something Italian with a blake constructed sole.

    Is it sharkskin or Mohair?
    Then its Electric Boots with a Mohair suit.

    Probably, if it is a skinny suit, which I would guess, a skinny tie. Maybe silk knit for contrast. I second the boots idea.

  15. I wonder how B&W spectators would look like with the suit.
