Ask the MB: Navy With Brown

Survey Says: Black and brown are both OK
Survey Says: Black and brown are both OK
Q: Two simple, related questions that you may have already answered:

1. Grey suit, white shirt, navy blue tie. What color shoes?
2. Navy blue suit. What color shoes?

Your answer will settle a family feud.

A: Ben, unfortunately we won't be able to settle the family feud. Between the two of you, you're right. Either black or brown shoes are perfectly acceptable in both of these scenarios. Our guess is what's throwing one of you off is the navy + brown combo. Maybe granddad only paired navy with black, but navy with brown looks great and is one small way to stand apart.
