    I am attending an evening cocktail party and want to wear something distinctive yet classic, and was wondering if a pair of Paul Stuart double monks would go with darker than average charcoal dress trousers? My other option is a pair of Prada double monks, jet black pictured below. Any suggestions or ideas welcome. Again this is a business function and every form of dress will be there, from extremely dressy to Izods.

    Thank you very much.[ATTACHMENT=7578][ATTACHMENT=7579]blackmonk.jpeg (103k. jpeg file)[/ATTACHMENT][/ATTACHMENT]

    That brown is far too light for evenings. Go with the black.

    When in doubt in the evening, go with black. A very dark brown might work but those are more of a medium brown.
