If, then with your negativeness. Or is it negativity? Or both?
Lol. j/k, of course.
So I've been experimenting this week with non-matching belts and shoes. I've never been of the school of thought that belt and shoes must match perfectly - in fact I don't think a perfect match is possible because even if you buy the belt from the same place as the shoes (so presumably they're the same leather) the shoes will patina differently - but I've always worn belts that are more or less the same shade. This week was different.
Monday was a British racing green belt and black shoes with a charcoal suit, Tuesday was the same but with a dark grey suit. IMHO both were great - the BRG is dark enough that it doesn't stand out but there was just a bit of subtle contrast for anyone who noticed (I was probably the only one). Today I'm wearing an Oxford tan belt (color pic below from Equus) with dark brown shoes (C&J). There's a bit more of a contrast which I suppose is fine with a casual fit but I admit I'm a bit less pleased.
Anybody else play around with non-matching belt/shoe combos?
