There is no singular list of men’s dressing rules that are comprehensive and absolute. Some rules suggest that a man should match the metal of the bit on his Casual shoes with the buckle on his belt with the metal on his suspenders with the buttons on his blazer with the metal of his cufflinks. On the other hand, there are some rules that have exceptions, such as the rule that a man’s socks should match the color of his pants. Style rules are written in pencil, not ink. Everyone should play around and discover their own style as that will show some personality.

Modern men’s fashion allows them to use a larger range of colors in their daily wardrobe. Any shoe manufacturer would have a hugecolor palette including green, red, blue, etc. in their product line. Nevertheless, the most popular colors in men’s shoe fashion are black or brown.

There are few situations where men do not have a choice between black and brown shoes. For example, there are formal events. In formal occasions, black or brown is the go-to color for any male. Also, a strict dress code at work will not allow you to put on multi-colored shoes.

Never the less, if you have ever heard the expression “no brown in town” forget about it. Brown Formal shoes are dressy (black ones are dressier though) and quite casual. When you want to decide whether to go with black shoes or brown shoes, consider the following rules. But, again don’t forget that “rules are made to be broken”.

One of the most important rules is avoid putting brown and black together when pairing suits and shoes, especially a black suit and brown shoes. Brown shoes (brown Reefland’s a great choice) will look perfect with a navy-blue suit. Brown shades can be everything from dark chocolate to light tan, and it can make your shoes very versatile. Brown shoes look great with earth tone suits, especially navy, grey and blue.

Black shoes are not as versatile as the brown ones, but they are dressier and more classic. They can go well with more urbane or sporty colors. Charcoal and black suits look great with black shoes and make a statement of tidiness when attending more formal events. If your outfit is not black, make sure to wear black watch and black belt with your black shoes.

But when we look at a more casual look like jeans and their combinations with shoes, the brown color is more preferable here. Brown shoes will look great even with black jeans. Just try to pick up a shade darker. Blue jeans will perfectly match with brown shoes of any shade, even if you have a black overcoat at the top.

But always keep in mind that style is a state of mind. Play around with your outfit. Discover your own style by being creative.
