1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm not sure you are going to find any "rules" here, especially when it comes to brown pants, for which I could see making a case for nearly any shade of shoe. You really have to see what looks good. Wear the pants to a shoe store and try on a bunch.

    Manton has mentioned on occasion that black shoes can look very good with dark brown suits or trousers. There are some "Golden Age" illustrations that show this pairing. It can look rather striking.

    Dark brown shoes with dark brown suits or trouser seem a little monochromatic.

    My favorite shoe color for pairing with dark brown slacks is Allen-Edmonds chili, but, then, I'm mighty partial to that color, period.

    Dark brown with a black shoe is fine. Much better IMO than some of the other recommended colors such as olive, burgundy or grey, really? Dark grey sweater on top or black will work I would'nt do navy.

    There are two rules (guidelines, really) that come to mine:
    Light brown is quite casual for work (unless "casual" also allows, say, jeans).
    All else being equal, light brown makes big feet look bigger.

    Fkit, I'm resurrecting this Methuselah thread because the comment from Dewey, above, is too good to languish in the archives. Enjoy.
