    Hi all,

    What are your thoughts on brown suits? I really want one but I fear the color will clash with most of my shoes since they're also brown. I have a beige suit already which I feel is a nice change from the gray and blue suits. Those who own numerous suits, what colors and patterns do you have? I have the staple colors already and want to try something different.

    I have 3 brown suits and a brown cord sport coat. They look best with dark brown shoes.

    Do you happen to be an agrarian worker?

    Brown sport coats are easier to do than suits because of the shoes on pants.

    Wear Clogs or Vintage pair of Reebok Pumps

    Seriously though, dark brown works. Navy might work as well (never tried navy shoes with brown though).

    I have a nice dark brown suit from Brooks Bros... it has the shadow herringbone pattern which is very subtle - it's actually a really nice suit and goes well with a lot of traditional shirt colors (white, pink, lavender, light blue, etc) and I usually wear it with black shoes.

    I always think of Dirty Harry when brown suits are mentioned.
