lazyrenaissanceman asked: I have a gray suit with light gray pinstripes, I was thinking about wearing a maroon tie, white shirt, brown belt, and brown shoes with it. Good or bad?
The way I am imagining this it sounds awesome, but I can’t see it and don’t know the exact shade of brown or gray so it’s hard to tell. I’m actually a big fan of pairing gray and brown together though I know it can be kind of controversial, but most of the time I think it works really well as long as it’s not too much?
This, as an example, is almost too much:
But that might also be because the suit is more of a cool gray and the shirt is a really yellow brown and I don’t love them together.
This is a good look:
Which also seems really similar to what you are talking about with the pinstripes, shoes and belt. I think a maroon tie could only make it more great. I say go for it!
