Okay, I might be barking up the wrong tree, but hear me out on this. Black shoes with khakis: is it inherently wrong, or is it just distasteful because it's a cliche of business-casual guys with black Kenneth Cole Reactions and relaxed-fit Dockers? I ask because I thrifted a sweet pair of Florsheim longwings, in black pebble grain, but I generally wear khaki pants. I tend to prefer warmer British Tans, and the black looks fine with them, to my eye. Your thoughts, as a guy whose style I admire?
