    That's one of the things I've noticed as well. It instantly makes the fit look very dated. Just need to freshen up that color palette a bit.
    I'm actually in the processes of moving away from brown/blue to more black/green (just dropped my Black 501's STF's at the tailor to get tapered). I actually have a question, though: Theoretically, would the brown boots work with a primarily black/dark green pallet? I actually own a (relatively) large amount of clothing in both of those colors and am looking at focusing on expanding along those lines (because I rather like those colors) but would also like to keep wearing the new boots. I suppose I could just post a fit once i get the jeans back from the tailor.

    if you've been born with what is basically a short, stocky body type, I don't get why you would wear strongly tapered jeans, which is only going to make you look shorter, and stockier. Just a thought.

    Can you only do two colors at a time or something?

    ^^ Yep, I think the jeans are too tight for your body type.

    The jacket is nice!

    Well, I figured there was an implicit "white/gray" in there (and now brown, as I used my photoshop skillz to determine that black jeans + brown boots actually looks pretty decent) but I really want to focus on expanding my wardrobe in certain color-directions to give me, well, direction in my buying habits.

    well you've posted a lot of dark green/black/brown/blue jean fits and honestly i think you should move in a different direction color wise. i think the green looks awful, personally.

    I'm thinking more olive than forest--I suppose dark is misleading. I mostly meant just not bright greens.

    But I'm planning on going to H&M sometime soon and stocking up on a more varied BD's

    Black jeans and brown boots look great if done correctly:

    Black and dark green palette does not sound pleasant.


    The trick is to be really attractive. GN, it looks like you take styling tips from a five year old Gap catalog. That's fine if you look like a model. Anything is fine if you look like a model. Unfortunately, most of us, including you, don't.

    I disagree. He's going to look short and stocky no matter what. Might as well wear some nicely tapered jeans. If he was obese, that would be a different matter.

    I agree. I believe it gets a bad rap because people often do it wrong. I prefer it with darker brown boots. The pic at your link looks good. I suspect that someone will not like it because shoes are brown and jacket is black.

    I don't follow any rules but black and brown don't really look that great together no matter what.

    Pretty much this but if it's really dark brown (like chocolate brown) it's not too bad.
