No, black and brown never work, neverI guess many have their own set of principles and their own tweaked sense of formality. 2 months ago i wore a rather loud burgundy medallion print madder tie to a classical concert. Absolutely not offensive when considering how 90% of the men there were dressed. And the other 9.5% wore the typical ill fitting suits or blazers. If you had seen what i have seen...The concert was at the Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin. It was summer ok, but still..
On the brown: in my opinion brown shoes are acceptable for nothing higher than a good restaurant or a sunday stroll, or sunday coffee if you care to suit up.
So no, bringing brown shoes to business seems a bit juvenile imo.
Dark Brown suits though are freaking awesome, best worn with black shoes. So rare and so amazing when made well, i don't think anyone would mind.
Can you substantiate this sweeping statement or should we just take your word for it?Yes, brown trousers only work with brown shoes including burgundy. Not black blue or any other cold tone color
I can understand that there is a certain appeal to having a unicoloured outfit, but how can you even achieve that? Say, you manage to find a pair of brown shoes that are very similar to your suit, it still won't be matching. You shoes will be shiny while the suit will be muted(well, hopefully). That alone means it is near impossible and you will have that odd effect of "same color, different shade". On top of it, the two pieces will be close to each other, which makes it worse. What will work would be a light brown suit with obviously darker brown shoes. I can agree on that. There has to be some degree of contrast imo.Yes, brown trousers only work with brown shoes including burgundy. Not black blue or any other cold tone color
