    Hi all!
    I'm new here, and I came to ask for your opinion.

    First time I bought khakis, and I'm not sure if this is good combination.. For me it looks somehow weird [​IMG] (khakis are not ironed).

    jarring differences in formality aside, i don't think the colors match well. a tan or cream colored shoe would be great, though.

    there are some shades of "khaki" that go well with black, but they tend to be made by japanese brands like tuki, buzz rickson, uniqlo, etc.

    Thanks for honest opinions!
    I just started to build my wardrobe. At the first I'll wear only black shoes (combined with black belt), but of course I'll look to buy similar brown shoes.

    It would look better if your khakis were creased, lacked the stitching on the side seams and hem, and colored darker.
