I got up this morning and put on a pair of Blue Polo Chinos and said what is it going be today Brown or Black for the shoes? I can't help but make an observation that some colors don't match brown very well. It is not like I couldn't do it but my decision was for Black. And so I would say that having a few pair of Black Shoes in your inventory are a handy item to have around. I am convinced that Black Shoes have a place in our closets and a couple of carefully chosen styles will save the day at times. Not sure if this one is black but it is close.
