I suppose certain variations on the theme might be jarring to the eye. Personally I would wear either a White or Pink shirt with that combo. If you can wear a given color of shoe with a color of pants the color is present.
As for the question of shoes, black would be sharp, even in the daytime. It is your wedding and you may want to nod in the direction of formality. However and in spite of my comment elsewhere on this thread about your wife dictating your clothing choices, I believe the wedding day to be almost the sole exception. Luckily my wife to be is awesome and told me I could wear whatever I want for the wedding.
Actual out loud chuckle. Should I also get rid of my tri-fold velcro wallet?? It will be useful if your diner ever gets held-up. They only ridicule you to hide their own insecurities. Having a personal style is all about knowing what you like and going with it.
Rules are meant to be understood and then defied. I dig your ideas. Throws a little flair into an otherwise normal look. As for your wedding, you should go with your gut about whatever feels right. My wedding was outside during the daytime too, and it was pretty casual. I actually bought a pair of Allen Edmonds red neumoks for the day and they went over like gangbusters.
If you were to try and use it on your lady, you may get into trouble. I was against brown and grey for years, until I tried it. My wife scoffed too but I dress for me, not for anyone else. Sounds legit as a look — but the one thing I kept in mind for my wedding: My parents, my grandparents, etc.
Sometimes the old-timers can be right — and for a formal event, it may behoove you to listen to them. I like your look idea — i would love to try it myself, but the ghost of Christmas future warns me to think twice.
Look at 80s wedding pictures. You can always tell from the pictures that it was an 80s wedding….. Especially when others, probably with a lower fashion IQ, are ridiculing you for it. There different variations of shads that you can explore in a brown shoe are almost endless and it allows you to express your true style. I never thought that brown and grey combo was an issue. I think it looks good and is just as good as black and grey, albeit not as formal.
And as for your wife and her family, what do they know? If I had to guess I would say that most of her family is not the best dressed. Grey and brown are two colours that could mean the widest range. Could still be fine, but could also look very odd. Just tossing that out there. If anyone is in doubt, this has the Indochino essential gray with both colors. Brown works best IMHO. The essential grey indochino suit with both brown and black shoes. It makes sense to match the clothing to the formality level of the event and the bride — but you and your fiancee get to set that level, not anyone else.
In ten years, if your biggest worry is about how your wedding photos looked, you either have a completely whacked perspective, or your life is really good. He blew me away with a gray suit medium gray and brown shows and belt. On him, with a white shirt, it went perfect. Your wife and her family are just flat out wrong here. I have a lot of questions. How well dressed are your inlaws? Do any of them own a pair of velcro shoes?
How well dressed is your wife? On your wedding day, the worst thing to be is late. The second is to be ridiculous.
You have a wife-decoder ring! Those are really nice-looking shoes, mate. I wear it all the time. Anyway, you should get the idea by now.
Feel free to post comments, disagreements, questions or requests for other colors in the comments section. Geoff, I could see that working. I do think that a pair of black jeans fits very nice to certain brown shades; there are so many shades of brownish leather. Thanks for giving me the idea!
S I now have an Etro paisley velvet jacket which I have paired with a pair of green Etro jeans what would you suggest to wear on the feet with that combination? Geoff, Sounds like a pretty sick jacket. I can imagine some plain velvet slippers looking good with the jacket and pants. Or some very sleek loafers. I think since the jacket and pants will have such a strong visual presence you would want to keep the footwear simple and sleek.
Equally at home below a suit as with jeans, if you wear them. But anyway, I have dragged on […]. Which again, is a false argument. But in fact, gray shoes can go with most colors of pants and suit. Nice combinations guide, makes life easier. I want to buy new shoes and need to know if these will fit with black jeans http: Wht kind of pants can I wear with some dark brown boot shoes for me this shoes are not like boots there like sperry topsiders.
Hussan, I have never seen it done well, to be honest. You are obviously welcome to try the combination out though. How often do you see grey or charcoal pants working well with a light brown leather oxford? Samuel, Pants that are both forest green and burgundy? Or green pants and burgundy shoes? Not totally sure what you are asking.
But both sound fine to me. What pants should I wear with grey suede shoes that have a lighter brown leather trim around the soles and the soles themselves being white? Having said that, it is useful guide for beginners who are willing to explore the art of dressing up. Not sure if I will ever venture into purple shoes though. So the shirt color plays no part in this decision? Burgundy shoe looks ok with brown pant, they both have redness; but white pant on purple or green shoe will look like a clown.
Not to mention is perfectly compliments and earthy colors of […]. If you can only afford one pair of dress shoes starting out, what color should I go? I looked at this chart for the first time today as I was debating on wearing black dress shoes with a light blue shirt and dark gray pants.
I ended up going with brown thanks to this chart…. Never had so many compliments. This is very very helpful. They appear like charcoal grey. Would be great if chart reflected this common shoe color. What shirt color can I wear with light grey pants and navy blue shoe and can I wear a navy blue blazer?
Dave, I used to think the same. But with a navy suit, black shoes can look great. I disagree on black pants and tan shoes not going I wore tan shoes black slacks and oatmeal v-neck with a white dress shirt last week and had no less than five women approach me and tell me how nice I look. Dain, I do not, but it is feasible, perhaps I will put one together. Black will go with everything. Not sure how to match colours?
Look at this chart here. Although im not a fan of the black shirt thrown in that mix. Hi Varun, You could wear any type of shoe with brown trousers — oxfords, boat shoes, loafers, trainers etc. It all depends on the type of pant and how formal you want to be. I still struggle with shirt colour though. Have you got any tips or a chart with all 3?
Dan, We do not have a chart with all three, but not a bad idea. What about dark blue derby shoes with denim blue pants? If not what color pants would you recommend?
For now, if you want to look into matching the colour a bit more have a look at the chart here. Hi blogger, do you monetize your thefineyounggentleman. There is easy way to earn extra money every day, just search on youtube — How to earn with wordai 4.
