Manton, you see that I said muddy charcoal.
When you look at charcoal you can see a couple of types. One of these has a more muddy, or brown, feel (I don't know the names) and that is the one that I don't think should be worn. All other types of charcoal, no worries. Mustard is another that belongs to this club of dirty colours. Mustard, olive, muddy charcoal and certain types of burgundy.
As for brown, well, I very rarely see it being worn in a suit, and have never noticed it looking particularly flattering.
Javyn I am referring mainly to suits and shirts. Accessories are more open to interpretation, and is where burgundy and brown find full favour with me. I also have a tie sitting somewhere between red and burgundy which I quite like.
