    If so how can I get it to work

    I realized that all of my jackets are black and it doesnt seem to look right with my brown shoes.

    With a black jacket, yes, but not with a black shirt or sweater.

    I personally think you can wear brown shoes with a black shirt or sweater. If other people would just accept it I wouldn't ever even think about it again.

    Since black and brown are both earth tones they can be worn together. I've worn all black with a brown belt and boots and it looked just fine. The only comments I get when I do this is what's with the hit man look.

    I'd say no. Black with black. Brown with anything else.

    My answer is yes. But I must also say it gets harder to pull off the dressier you get.

    it can work and look really chic....but it's one of those "if ya gotta ask about it, then you probably arent gonna pull it off"
