Thank you Aaron and Kitonbrioni for your thoughts and thank you for the welcome. I really appreciate the wealth of knowledge assembled on this site. I learn something new everytime I log on. Yes, it is pretty matchy, and like I say, I do try to go the safe route. Aaron, you mention wearing brown shoes, but I was told once that you should not match brown and gray but I didn't really believe them. However, it did scare me away from experimenting, and though I have looked for other evidence, I have never seen anything to contradict. Until now. So this long sentence to say and ask, I appreciate you setting me straight, but is there an amount you should or should not wear when you put them togerther? Would you do just shoes and belt, or could you add some in a tie or shirt? Thank you all for helping me become more colorful.
