Recommendations and advice are fine, but insulting those who are relatively new to this forum and to this hobby is not helpful either to the forum or to those who come to this forum seeking advice and to those seeking individuals who share a common interest.
Don't get your panties in a bunch, everyone is here to help you. However, if you start handing out advice before you know what you are talking about, you may get ragged on. Backing up your point with "Florshiems are my favorte shoes" is not going to do you any favors.
What makes you think that black works "best" with grey? I wear greay and charcoal all the time with beautiful brown...
