Yeah I have a pair of burgundy cords that get a ton of wear in the fall or winter. Don't know what you guys are on about.
I pretty much only wear them with tan shoes because they look bad with my brown ones, but they're super easy to wear with navy, gray, green, tan of any kind, my camo blazer, etc. etc.
Oh yeah I've worn them with CP duck boots that are navy and brown a bunch too, which is apparently what I had on the only time I ever posted them here. Coincidentally I'm also wearing navy, gray, and camo as well as rug pattern
Burgundy is easy. They just look really bad with my brown EG longwings, because those already have hints of red in them. Lots of pants look bad with those though so idk
