Quite. Black is always appropriate.
Brown and variants are more 'du jour' and I can understand that. But it doesn't mean they're always right.

Perhaps it's just the enthusiasm of the neophyte, but I'm quite fond of black, brown, and oxblood; each has its place.

I will say that a couple of the pairs that patrick posted are absolutely wonderful. In particular, the last pair in the bottom row stood out to me. Is that black and burgundy? Love them.

Also have to disagree with a previous poster about cheap black shoes looking good - cheap black shoes (and even corrected grain on well-known brands) usually looks indistinguishable from plastic. I think good black really showcases quality (or the lack of it) because it is apparently so hard to give depth and patina to black leather.

I just realized why I don't like navy suits with black shoes--my five years spent in the Air Force.

I wish I could have worn brown...

Then shouldn't you have joined the Army, instead?

This post is particularly relevant to the topic too, thoughts on black vs brown and whatever happened to burgundy.[/quote]


thanks for the link. I was recently quite perturbed to hear from bootsonline that they are no longer supplying RM Williams in red

"black shoes should only be worn to a funeral"

quote by someone i can't remember, sums up my thoughts on the topic perfectly.

All service dress uniforms wear black shoes.

And black suits too, right?

Black is alright. Just another color to me. Unfortunately the local climate doens't lend to its wearing very often. Most of my pants are light in color.

No idea why the disdain for black shoes on SF though. If your pants are mostly navy and black, then you are good to go.

I would guess most people here don't wear black pants. Charcoal/gray would be more widely used.

Plain black wool trousers tend to look quite bad, especially during the day, but I have to admit that I occasionally wear some black trousers which are made from a sort of velvet cord fabric; because of the fabric they have much more depth and interest and don't look too bad. I wear black shoes often though, either with the aforementioned black trousers or with a navy suit; there is nothing inherently wrong with black shoes.

I do not own a pair of black shoes but I have a pair in my avatar. Odd.
