Which belt goes better with a pair of light Chinos, a black or a brown one? Of course, I would wear my shoes in the same color, so you have to consider that. And I might wear it with light and dark blue shirts and other bright sommer colors.

I personally prefer the black combination because to me it looks more modern and trendy. I'm quite young and I think brown is more in common for the older generation.

What do y'all think?

I appreciate EVERYBODY'S help.

IMHO,

Totally depends on shirt....Earth tones= brown. Red, blacks, blues, etc=black. Olive also could be black.

Europe's Finest,

Also IMHO, I would without a doubt go with the light brown.
The lack transition from any shirt (pattern, color, texture, etc) to black to light chinos just looks out of place. From a distance it puts a solid black line effectively cutting you in half. Its a photography thing. I hope this helps.

Thanks for your help.
So Steve B. thinks that it looks all right with blues, blacks, and red. But in parsonsdb's opinion it looks out of place. I'm a little bit confused now. @ parsonsdb: Do you think brown would be better? Or do you recommend another color? Does that mean I also have to wear brown shoes? If so, for what do I need my black shoes (just for black pants?)? P.S.: What means "IMHO"? I guess "In My H.(?) Opinion.?

Europe's Finest, Yes, defitanly a brown belt with light chinos. I wear ribbon belts and, I've got to explain this one. The belts with flags, fish, nautical symbols, stuff like that. As for shoes, most of the time I wear docksiders, or my flops. I hope this helps.
