I was at a Brooks branch yesterday, talking to the manager about some of my experiences with Ernest. I got around to the fact that he invented the forum's informal motto, "Brown is for Farmer," (why don't we get some t-shirts printed up with that phrase printed on them). He thought that was pretty funny and said that it reminded him of a story told by his father, the original manager of the first Brooks in Atlanta. His father had a good customer who always bought brown shoes to wear with his navy and grey suits. When his father questioned the propriety of doing that and asked why he never wore black ones, the man responded: "black shoes are for waiters." BLACK IS FOR WAITER.
Thanks Ken, that's a great story.

Must we constantly come back to only two topics on the forum? Have we lost all originality when Black and the One Who's Name I Shant Repeat are the only topics of interest left on the forum? Enough is ENOUGH. Jon.
You're like some FCC bureaucrat. If you don't like it, don't click on the thread when it's so obvious from the subject line how is will thread out.

Manton and other members, I match a Red/ Grey POW type plaid sport jacket with black pants. What shade of brown shoes would you wear with black pants? Thanks

As Apu said when Lisa asked what happens when a Quick-E-Mart customer requests non-alcoholic beer, "You know, it's never come up." I don't own any black odd trousers, and wouldn't wear them.

'line how is will thread out.'
What? I'm not like an FCC bureaucrat; ad hominem attacks are no basis for a valid counterargument. I simply criticized the subject matter directly, not its posters directly, whereas you on the other hand... Jon.

Thinking about it, I dont know that black shoes are 'for waiters' (i pulled a nice photo off the NY times site today of the shoes of quite a few world leaders at the v-day event in russia - all are black) but black pants certainly are. I've never seen black odd trousers on anyone (with a shred of style sense) but waiters.

What a ridiculous post.  Stil, I think I will keep wearing my nice black wool pants, and you can stick with your ill-fitting wrinkled khakis.  How's that??
