I'm interested in hearing the thinking behind those shoes.
This is really, really nice.
No thinking behind the shoes except that they coordinate - sort of - with the tie.
Maybe I should get them muddy.
Many thanks GMMcL for taking over the challenge, especially at such short notice, I'm sorry everyone that I couldn't commit to running this or another challenge this week. Some scumbag stole or sold off banking details from my bank, and I've been trying to reclaim what little funds I had. So, been a little preoccupied.
Anyway, Brown Suit for the masses!
Thanks again for your understanding, I'll try to run a special challenge or two in the near future, both the 'Learn from the Masters' and another look at a three or four pattern combo.
Hope that everything goes well, TTO.
On the other hand... TTO is gonna destroy all of us in this challenge.
You are being imperious, and worse, inconsistent. You said camel hair was okay, and then said tan wouldn't cut it. It may not be what you intended, but lack of specificity has yielded these results. The norm here is to include all but the most obviously transgressive entries and let the horde sort it out in their voting.
Be cool, man.
clagster, that's awesome. who made the soot?
Curious does any shade of brown work with black, and if yes, which shade? Beige bordering on gray?
Sorry, GMMcL, I was confusing your comments and jrd's. Who's running the show here?
With black what? Brown suits and black ties are common. Black shoes with with brown suits...
I'm afraid you had GMMcL confused with jrd617.
Just trying to clear up things.
On another note, awesome entries so far.
^ I meant with odd jackets and sport coats. I had on a beige-gray (long) coat with light to mid gray trousers and black oxfords the other day. Never crossed my mind since the beige was light enough IMO but reading CM more I am beginning to think some brown suede or calf would have been better.
Brown suits and black ties!? Now that is new to me. Thanks
I came up with the idea a few weeks ago but TTO had GMMcl make the thread last minute: http://www.styleforum.net/t/361216/...-2013-choose-your-challenge/0_50#post_6579075
My thought is this: no point in having a thread called the Brown Challenge if you're going to allow tan/camel entries.
I'm talking milk and dark chocolate brown, not caramel
Schöne Jacke Don. Wear do you shop?
