    The great thing about fashion is you can do whatever the fuck you want regardless of what idiots or fashion elite faggots say.

    You don't mix black and brown

    Black shoes, black belt (black socks)
    Brown shoes, brown belt (brown socks)

    Don't wear black shoes with kahki's/ brown pants

    black, blue or grey suit = black belt/shoes
    olive, tan or brown = brown

    too bad in certain business settings something as petty as having the wrong color belt with your shoes can hamper someone's judgement of you

    Guys just don't know how to think outside of the box and realize some things do look good.

    Not too long ago, I wore dark brown bermuda shorts and a lilac purple dress shirt. Black belt and sandals. I received compliments left and right.

    no, it's more like most guys are just fashion retarded/colorblind and need very broad "rules of thumb" to protect them from...themselves :mamoru:

    of course there's ways you can make it work, but most guys dont have a versatile enough wardrobe and/or keen enough eye to make it happen

    So mixing black and brown - yes or no?

    I want to buy these Mark Nason boots in brown, but I have a lot of black shirts. Will this combo work? Or should I just stick with the black boots? It's almost a $500 investment so I want to make sure I get this right.

    Here are the black ones:
