At least make the shade closer to mid than to black. Charcoal really isn't as versatile as an odd trouser as something a little lighter.

Definitely medium gray is a lot more versatile than charcoal but charcoal does have its place (with light-colored shirts).

Sassettis - Opinion

Opinion on these Sassettis from Nordstrom?  Would be worn strictly with shirt/tie/slacks (brown/grey/blue).

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I have few pairs of Sassettis and quite like them.... but not $400 like them. Even half that is too much. I've gotten all mine at Nordy Rack for around $150-ish. Decently made, nice leather... definitely not worth retail.

What kind of shirts would not go well with charcoal pants?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I don't like the last on those (I believe the last is that which gives the shoe its shape, I might be wrong). 

 

It's almost as if this show combines the worst aspects of square toes and pointy's.

I'm trying to buy better quality ties and starting with some basics, and have solid black and solid brown covered.

Any of those suits worn with a white shirt would look great with a solid navy tie.  The mid grey shakrskin with a light blue shirt would also look fantastic with the solid navy tie.  I would avoid dark green ties in general, but thats just my opinion.

 I agree that medium gray is more versatile, but because it pairs better with a variety of jackets, including a navy one. It provides a bit more contrast with the navy than charcoal does.

I got to work this morning and was drinking my morning cup of joe when I accidently spilled some on a pair of Epaulet wool trousers that I had on. There are now three small stains on my trousers. I had washed the stained area with water and them dabbed the area, but was wondering what else I could do to immediately resolve the issue at hand.

 

When I get home after work, is my best bet to wash the pant in woolite?

Just not sharp when people meet you shack your hand then check out your shoes then judge you.

I’m a horrible slob all I can do is have a strategy for cleaning. My strategy consist http://www.flickr.com/photos/puddleboy/4092047265/, wet the stain rub the pants on the bar, gently rub the fabric against it self, then wash as per instructions. Baking soda also is a great tool.

Bile soap on that area and let it do its work for 24 hours (put it in a plastic bag to keep it damp)?

That's what dry cleaners are for.

Those Tide pens should work well enough on coffee stains.
