I must admit that I do not wear black often, event though I have a few pairs and even thinking about buying a new pair of black G&G. Most of my shoes are colored, orange, blue, raspberry, green, blue and many different shades of brown. As I don't have to wear a suit very often, I can easily wear a pair of black trousers with a colored shoe. But I do not dare wearing anything else with a black pin-stripe suit but a pair of very well polished black shoes. Call me classical, but that is my taste. On the other hand I remember shocking my co-workers in London when wearing a grey suit with brown suede oxfords.
