    I'm for that, do it myself. Rarely brown shoes with black pants though, and never with a black suit.

    I'm not really a fan of mixing black and brown in almost any incarnation, though I think the lighter the shade of brown the better it looks. A light tan or reddish brown shoe goes much better than with chocolate. Sometimes the rules exist for a good reason, and this is one I almost always adhere to.

    No. And thank god.

    (nothing against Italians, it's just that I'm Irish, and we're better than Italians.)

    Well then I must be better than you because I am Irish and Italian (with a bit of Spanish/Moorish tossed in) So I get the best of both worlds

    Goddamnit.

    No, no she doesn't. A strap-on would have no racial association at all (excluding a possible Made In China deal) so your assertion is fallacy!

    I've seen black suits with tan shoes that looked pretty good. Also seen dark brown worn with blue suite.

    Interesting, I have the opposite view. I wear black jeans and dark brown boots occasionally and like it. I wouldn't wear light brown shoes and black pants however. This is yet another situation where you have to see the exact pants/shoes combo to pass judgment. Rigid rules don't help. If they did, someone could just print out a list of the rules off the internet and instantly be well dressed. It just doesn't work that way. I think we can all agree on that. EDIT: holy crap I just realized how old this thread is.
