Once a year, for a change of pace, maybe, but otherwise forego black if you are serious about dressing well. That sounds a bit antiquated or maybe conservative is a better word for my taste. To say that if you...
This was posted yesterday by a forum member. To me this is too dressy a shoe for khakis. I agree that it should be an informal shoe ie. loafer, driving moc. It is a beautiful shoe though. [/quote]

Good info to pass on for my next pair. Just curious as to what adjustments may be possible to fix these as best as can be.

I think this looks more modern, especially since the pants seem more modern...

One cannot pair it with a suit and a shirt the traditional way. I don't think it will look good with other conservative suit styles like a white shirt and a navy suit.

[quote=Style_Deficit;977811]Noob observer here .. about a year since I posted a WAYWT pic ... the last one was ignored .. that hurt.. and gave me food for thought ... I know I'm breaking a cardinal rule by mixing brown suede boots and a brown "manbag" with an otherwise black outfit, but I quite like it nonetheless ... Is that a cardinal rule? I think brown and black can look quite cool together. It's just a different vibe. More casual if you will. I think...
