    You're like some FCC bureaucrat. If you don't like it, don't click on the thread when it's so obvious from the subject line how is will thread out.

    Manton and other members,

    I match a Red/ Grey POW type plaid sport jacket with black pants.
    What shade of brown shoes would you wear with black pants?

    Thanks

    As Apu said when Lisa asked what happens when a Quick-E-Mart customer requests non-alcoholic beer, "You know, it's never come up." I don't own any black odd trousers, and wouldn't wear them.

    (imageWIS @ May 08 2005,08:27) Must we constantly come back to only two topics on the forum? Have we lost all originality when Black and the One Who's Name I Shant Repeat are the only topics of interest left on the forum? Enough is ENOUGH. Jon.
    'line how is will thread out.'
    What? I'm not like an FCC bureaucrat; ad hominem attacks are no basis for a valid counterargument. I simply criticized the subject matter directly, not its posters directly, whereas you on the other hand... Jon.

    Thinking about it, I dont know that black shoes are 'for waiters' (i pulled a nice photo off the NY times site today of the shoes of quite a few world leaders at the v-day event in russia - all are black) but black pants certainly are.

    I've never seen black odd trousers on anyone (with a shred of style sense) but waiters.

    What a ridiculous post.  Stil, I think I will keep wearing my nice black wool pants, and you can stick with your ill-fitting wrinkled khakis.  How's that??
