Burgundy has been a big hit in fashion over the last two years, both for women and men.
I'm wondering what you guys think about burgundy, it's versatility and how universal a colour it is. What burgundy clothes do you guys have and what do you think is the best warderobe item that can and should be burgundy?

Burgundy or maroon neckties are a staple, as they go well with coats in most shades of blue, gray, brown, or even cream.
Burgundy or oxblood shoes are a classic, though perhaps less versatile than dark brown, as they are harder to pair well with trousers than dark brown. They can be very elegant.
Burgundy or maroon hose are classics, especially with blue or gray trousers. Maroon hose are the color of choice for wearing with a tuxedo.
Burgundy or maroon stripes or checks on a white-ground shirt are a classic, though if the stripe or check dominates the ground, the shirt can be quite loud.
Burgundy jackets and trousers are generally frowned upon here. Maroon can work in linen, or as a smoking jacket.
