Really? Have you ever been to a business meeting, seen executive, or observed dignitaries such as the POTUS?

All these people dress like noobs though, they would def not have much rep on the igent circuit (and for good reasons). I like pairing navy/black, even in the same garment so that is not about the particular pairing...

Navy and black is a peeve that I have aside from black shoes. I really don't like a black tie with a navy suit.

preferences are one thing, by all means prefer whatever you like, but the idea that black shoes don't go with navy or that it is un-business-like is crazy.gif

I sometimes wonder if JapanAlex is a particularly adept troll...

LOL, no, sugarbutch, but 'genius' is a word, that comes to mind. smile.gif

I know black shoes w/ navy suit is the classic office attire; I was merely stating, that black does not go with navy, if you follow colour theorem. It is a total lack of colour; only colours can work well together--balances of colour in the spectrums (depending on what look you are going for). Yes, generations of men/women have worn black and navy--and following that principle, it's fine--but no one would be correct, if they said black can work with anything but other shades, if you follow colour theorem (as I said). I do freelance graphic design work, and take colour pretty seriously in that area. Only trashy designers use pure black on colours for text, for example; most use a very dark variant of the colour. White is easier; it does work with colour.

I'm not trying, to tell anyone not to do what, the fuck they want, but, in line with what I have just said, I find navy and black heinous! Whether you agree or not, that's my reasoning.

I've never heard that and have been involved in professional design for over fifteen years.

Setting smaller type in a four-color black would lead to ink supersaturation and impaired legibility. Unless you're referring to headlines or text for the screen. And even then, I'd think that black would only be chosen purposely. Just as a "very dark variant" would.

Perhaps you're trapping the "very dark variant" as a knockout?

It's coming back to me... the days when a kid would say, "Black's my favorite color," and some other kid would say, "BLACK'S NOT A COLOR!!" Got it. I see Alex. Thank you. Now I see.
