Black will always be a better tux colour!

However, when it comes to accessories, brown looks much more refined and rich than black. Expecially when it comes to leathers. Sometimes black can look too sterile and cold. Brown brings warmth when used sparingly. My brown ties is my absolute favourite and I get complemented on it all the time.

Sometimes it comes back around, cyclical. Right now, black is back, it's the new black.

Black is back? Wtf, since when? I own a single piece of black clothing (sweater) and my ratio of brown shoes to black is about 6 to 1. You guys are killing me here.

I find myself reaching for my brown clothing far more often than black...I don't own any black pants, shirts, and don't wear black ties to work. *Disclaimer* I do own a black suit, but it's really nice and I only wear it for certain events. That said I do have about 50-50 with black and brown (plus burgundy) shoes. I haven't worn 3 of my black pairs in months and I'm thinking about putting them up on B&S, to fund the purchase of more brown and burgundy shoes of course!
