(For the record i do think brown shoes mark a refined gent out from riff raff...but only if worn with smart black trousers. Anybody who wears a grey suit is sub-human scum).
That's basically the opposite of what i said in the link, that i didn't check. It's almost like i make opinions up to try to irk people.
(We can add brown shoes to that other thread actually).
I might be giving away trade secrets here but:
- You can wear brown shoes with a blue suit if you are under 30, but only if the suit is the right shade of blue.
- You can wear brown shoes with jeans if you are over 40 and its Thursday, Friday or Sunday.
One pair brown,one pair oxblood.
But they're basically right. Brown shoes with a work suit are an abomination, but go with just about everything else. Black shoes with jeans or shorts are an abomination but they go with just about everything else.
Black trousers. White shirt. Every day.
Work uniform: done.
Fuck bothering to care about, or pay for, anything more complex for bloody work.
