No. Why should they spend money on a second pair of shoes just to go with a pair of trousers. It is stupid. I can't see why brown shoes don't go with black trousers. The thought never even crossed my mind that brown shoes might not go with particular clothing until now.
Why? What does fashion matter? Don't we all have the right to choose our own fashion style. I have never heard of brown shoes being disgusting before. I think they look fat better than black. If it is part of a uniform for work then that is a different matter, but otherwise people can wear what they like. You don't have the right to judge someone else's choice of footwear. You make it sound like the be all end all when it is something very minor.
My thoughts, to which I'm entitled. It was the way I was raised, & you've no right to judge that at all! If people want to look 'wrongly dressed', according to correct convention, that's their choice. They're the ones' who are laughed at.
To agree to disagree is fine. But that's 'normal' for you, as your outlook on life is very negatively skewed, according to your nearly every comment, on this site.
Bryony - I'm with you on this one. We are not so formal nowadays that it really matters. I wouldn't be too "fazed" by Donjo's comments as she seems to delight in denigrating anyone who doesn't agree with her point of view.
Good on ya, norma! I find you haven't the guts to make a reply yourself, you'll wait until someone else does! I won't say what you remind me of, but your picture confirms it to me.............
And Bryony, what I said about your comments is SO true, you're negative ALL the time, every comment. I know you've 'health' issues, but it's tiring to read your negativity constantly! Do you EVER have a good day, or time? Doubt it.....
And Jennifer, of course, you've come in with your 5c worth! Typical!
Just because you may not agree, DON'T call me rude! If I am going to be so, you'll sure as hell know about it, & then some!
Some of YOUR replies' to others', & myself, have been downright abusive.
An opinion is stated, it can be disagreed with, but don't have 'go's' at me for doing so.
My life experience would be MORE than you three put together, but considering some of your replies', that really wouldn't be too difficult at all!
You're just a mob of whingers, & moaners, lacking much, in every way..........
Donjo - what a sad, angry person you seem to be. I don't appear to be alone in my opinion either, so maybe you should contemplate on your remarks to people on this site in future. Sarcasm has always been considered the lowest form of wit!
Yet again, you're very, very wrong! I'm definitely NOT sad, but I don't suffer fools! I tell it like it is, & how I see things, always have, always will. If others' don't like it, stiff!
I live in a REAL world, where I don't look through 'rose coloured glasses' at people.
I've worked both in civilian, & military jobs where there's no room for error. It could mean the difference between life, & death, so please excuse me if you don't like my attitude!
Great responsibility comes at a cost.
As I previously said, my 'life experience' would rung rings around you three, & that suits me fine.
Yes! It looks totally wrong. Grant Denyer (Family Feud) does it all the time with a blue suit and it just doesn't look right. Especially when it is that dog-s*it brown colour! I do not like brown shoes at all (male or female).
Yes, Rice, being 'well dressed' is a sign of someone who has pride in themselves, in society, & who likes to look good at all times. And who's NOT lazy!
There're rules in 'fashion', the same as rules in all parts of human life, & if there's not, CHAOS reigns!
We've all seen 'frights' of outfits!
I prefer people to be colour matched. If it doesn't affect me, I don't worry about it. The only time it would bother me is if he were going out with me !!! My husband only has black shoes to wear with a suit, and only black or navy blue suits, so it is not an issue for us.
I'd prefer the shoes to be black with black and brown with brown or beige suits. However my biggest gripe is that so many do not polish the shoes which totally ruins the look of a smartly dressed guy, so please guys, make the effort to look after your shoes.
Filthy shoes, as in above picture, are totally yuk!
Nearly all of my Parents, & my contemporary generations, served in the Military, where having dirty shoes can be a 'charge'! It's just a sign of laziness, big time!
No, no, no! Red shoes are entirely different. One can wear red shoes anywhere, anytime in my universe . . . I have several pairs as I wear so much red and a gorgeous red Akubra. My eyes would be happy to see your red shoes. *-*
Oh, I didn't realise that a suit could demand black shoes? Don't brown go just as well? I think I'm too fashionably challenged to have answered this question. So, my answer is "no" since I don't realise that there are suits that have to have black shoes.
I think there are many other things in this world to be irritated at than the colour of men's shoes. It wouldn't particularly bother me if my son wore brown shoes with a contrasting colour outfit, as long as the shoes were polished. He's a big Doc Martens fan so would probably wear either brown or black DMs with whatever suit or casual trousers he was wearing.
