    Imagine the color of a pair of charcoal pants, like the ones Google found for me:

    And then imagine the color of these pair of dark brown suede shoes, also from Google:

    How would they fit together?

    I don't like suede with dress slacks. Jeans, yes. Slacks, no. Nay. A preemptive "fuck you" to the fag who criticizes my criticism.

    It's a combo that's seen often here on SF. Yay.

    First of all, it is spelt 'yea' and not 'yay'. Secondly, brown shoes are not allowed to be worn with charcoal, medium grey or navy trousers.

    This sounds like bowtielover's son. More educated than father to recognize that 'yea' and 'yay' are two different spellings, but not enough to recognize they're different words or offer sartorial advice.

    bowtielover offers the worst sartorial advice ever, I am just telling the OP the 'rules' as I believe they exist. There is a joke often said in England that Americans 'wear brown shoes to funerals'. This is owing to their tendency to wear brown shoes in many inappropriate situations.
