I've been looking at Equus' website and rather fancy their West End belt in racing green. Of course I don't own any green shoes tough. So I suppose my question is this: can one wear a green bridle leather belt in the same way that one wears a ribbon belt, ie as a freestanding bit of colour rather than as something that shouldn't be too distant from the colour of one's shoes? I'm not looking for "wear it if you like it" answers, but for arguments of sorts. My argument would be that since green isn't really a traditional colour for shoes then a green belt is obviously not intended as a matchable item. Unless we hold that leather belts should always match, in which case no green belt for me. Opinions?
