What buckles should use? Since we carry so many styles it does get confusing. This is still a matter of personal choice as the design of which style reflects not only the persona that you are portraying but your own style too.
The Middle class and Tradesmen might go for more design for their shoes. After all, they got passed the large silk bow for their shoes several decades earlier. For the conservative man might choice the Basketweave, Swill or Rope style in either Brass or white metal.
The Upper class might show off more elaborate buckles such as the Tudor, Swirl, Pierced, Great Thistle as they were or for the final show of financial accomplishment, have them studded with gemstones. In our case, we use crystal in gem colors. Brass or Silver metal is still, what goes with what you have to wear.
