    OK, so I'm on a 4-day trip. I packed 2 pants (Charcoal and Tan) and two pair of shoes (black and dark brown). Unfortunately I only brought a brown belt. Should I wear brown belt / black shoes or no belt with the gray pants?

    Find a Target and buy a black one for $20 to get you through.

    +1. I've had to do this myself on occasion.

    Don't want to wear the brown shoes 4 days in a row.

    The belt is off. The pants are staying up just fine. I feel so British.

    Use your tie (if you have one) as a belt Fred Astaire style.

    You can only do this if you also sing show tunes and dance.[​IMG]

    If you are wearing a jacket, just wear the brown belt and tie your tie a touch longer. Nobody will care.

    Wear the brown belt and point out to everyone you meet that you apologize about them not matching your shoes.[​IMG]
