lol, I've always abided by that rule, but I thought I'd check to see if the conventional wisdom had had loosened any in recent times. It sure didn't look all that appealing in the mirror, but I don't wear MC that often, so I feel a bit our of my environment putting pieces together. Thanks for the quick reply.

To all who replied, I think I'm gonna go with a tassel loafer from Alden. Probably calf as it's easier on the wallet.

Anyways, given my shoe rotation:

- black AE Park Avenue
- chilli AE Byron
- dark brown AE verona
- black Alden cape cod loafers
- chestnut CJ chelsea
- dark brown AS double monks

Should I go with a black or chilli Weybridge via B&S

I would go with Chili. But I also don't care for black too much, and you seem to have that covered. You may want to look for a burgundy at some point though [maybe the tassel loafers... in shell smile.gif]

The rule hasn't changed, I think, because it's more than a rule a color coordination thing: it just don't look right when we talk about dark brown shoes and black trousers. I wear tan/light brown shoes with black jeans and it looks good.

Recently came across a really good deal on a khaki seersucker suit jacket. Would like some recommendations on what pants to pair it with. I think it's the overall light khaki color that has made it feel challenging for me.

Didn't want to start a new thread on this if I didn't have to. smile.gif

If it weren't a deal, would you want a khaki seersucker? Did you want one before you saw how cheap it was?

I would treat it the same as a solid khaki sportcoat. Might work with denim.

I had been wanting a seersucker sportcoat. Was looking for one in blue, but saw the khaki. Figured I would give it a shot in that color. I understand where you are going with that line of questioning, but sometimes we all make adjustments to our original purchasing plans when we find a deal.

Thanks for the advice on denim. I had already figured that would work and maybe some white pants.

"Black" jeans are usually dark grey, anyway. This is something you can get away with in a SW&D-type look, but not as much a MC look.

The only way brown with black really works is if that's the concept of the outfit. This usually means the only colors are black and neutrals. It was trendy with women a few years ago to wear black leggings and brown boots.

What do you think?? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

She looks nice. The guy needs to be wearing black shoes or a brown tie, the outfit has to be tied together for that kind of thing to work.

Also, I still wear black shoes with black jeans. And I would clarify the dark gray bit: Black jeans start off black, then fade into gray. I have a pair I particularly love that has loverly contrast from light gray to charcoal, but they started off pitch black.
