brown is for farmers.
I have the Parliaments in saddle brown and wear them with my charcoal/navy suits, dress pants and jeans (with collared shirt and SC).
I wear my mocha AE Drydens frequently with wool pants of various colors: tan, brown, medium gray, navy, and charcoal.
I'm wearing my Alden cigar shell longwings with brown wool Incotex today.
My PRL / C&J cigar shell PTBs look nice with jeans and, yes, cotton khakis.
I read somewhere that navy or blue should be worn with dark brown shoes.
Yes on the navy suit.
Dark brown can be worn with anything except a tuxedo. (Assuming that your tux is the only black suit in the wardrobe).
What about with a pair of black pants (for a business casual environment, so no suit or jacket)? What about burgundy/merlot with black pants?
Black pants are for formal affairs, not for everyday work attire.
You should not own a pair of black pants unless they are tux pants and part of a tux....
Oxblood/Merlot is for vampires.
it takes forever for SFers to fall into a trap now. before it was easy to start a flame war.
What if they have pin stripes? Still no good?
Separate names with a comma.
