Ask the MB -- Black Shoes & Brown Pants

Ask the MB -- Black Shoes & Brown Pants
Q: What's the rule for wearing black shoes and brown/tan pants together? The easy rule is that you never do it. But I've seen the combo out and about before. Is this kosher? Under what circumstances?
—James


A: James, great question. It's a tough one because there is no hard-and-fast rule. It requires "feel" and feel can be hard to cultivate. What style are the pants? Is there a pattern? What are they made of? These things play a role. We're going to do our best to give an answer by providing you with the following chart as a rough guide:
