Thanks Ironist. That is a nice pairing, really well matched. Not spoilered for ease of comparison with...
a picture I found, which I assume has a similar color scheme since it's listed as snuff suede Simpson last (from an former Epaulet employee)
Trousers to me here are dark mid-gray to light charcoal (I know I'm splitting hairs). It works ok, I think, just to put one bound. I would definitely not go darker.
Curious if other folks have opinions.
