    Brown shoes will lead to brown belt. Brown belt and a black tie, knit or no, will lead to nowhere good.

    mrjester, check out Yount's knits. They are wider than most knits (3 inches) and pointed.

    Would you say a brown belt is more versatile than a black belt? I want a one-type-fits-all-occasions belt.

    I think that the belt is simply supposed to blend in with your trousers? Visually, I can't see how matching a belt with physically distant shoes will do any good.

    Pointed knits are the devils work. Takes all the fun out of it. But thank you sir.
    Yes, brown is always more versatile.

    Always.

    And.. belt blend in with trousers? Where did you hear that?

    There is literally one utterly inflexible rule in clothing. If you're wearing brown shoes, you can't wear a black belt. If you're wearing black shoes, you can't wear a brown belt.

    I'm afraid I don't agree, Claghorn. The formality of a black knit tie with a pair of brown shoes makes sense together. Normally, black and brown don't work together in clothing, but I think this is a minor exception. That said, I wouldn't like SB's rig as much with brown shoes...

    I'll only pay if I get full rights to the .jpegs resulting from said encounter, and euphemisms aren't the only thing of which you are full, Derk - but that is part of your dubious charms. :satisfied:

    I kind of try to keep the two separate any way possible. I learned this years ago, didn't need SF to point that out.

    Thanks, Stitchy.

    mrjester, it is a silk knit, but the scale is finer than typical, so the sheen isn't as apparent.

    I'm not sure how a grayscale fit calls for brown shoes. A knit tie may be more casual than a repp silk tie, but this one is black. Black shoes seems like an...uncontroversial choice. I would be more receptive to a call for black derbies.

    I like what you have going on -- very minimal. I wonder if a black full brogue bal would be cool with it?

    yes.


    do not think so. i think you are thinking of a fit with a blue tie. i could be wrong though, but i think i remember all my fits with the black grenadine and i think all were with black shoes. feel free to prove me wrong if you have the pic.

    y u no post pic of your awesome fit today?


    :lol:

    also, nice fit.

    I THINK that's a good looking rig T, but as usual it's impossible to tell how well it fits, with you always doing a Prince Charles with your jacket pockets. Jus sayin!

    It looks good. I think it fits fine. But, he's not really asking about fit ;) T knows his stuff well enough, he knows how clothes need to fit better than a lot of us, including me.

    I just really wonder what's so intriguing, far off to his right. :)

    I myself don't know what I was looking at. My wife was able to catch the most awesome decisive moment.

    Yeah. I never put hands in any of my pockets and I leave lower jacket pockets stitched up. Hands in jacket pockets just spoils the jacket line to me.
