Black and Brown | The Second Button


Black and brown. A forbidden mixture. Why do individuals say these colours do not work collectively? They appear *implausible* collectively. Like, constantly. Right here, I am going to show it.

Black and Brown
Jonathan Daniel Pryce

As you may know by now, I take pleasure in debunking menswear taboos. You can jet your pockets casually, you can put on blue denims with black loafers, you can put on linen within the fall. However one of many extra prevalent myths in menswear needs to be that you just simply cannot put on black and brown collectively. Not solely do I feel you can try this, I feel they’re actually a downright implausible mixture. Contrasting the 2 instantly, in virtually any shade of brown, constantly will get me going. So put on white after labor day and let unfastened, it is time for some good, easy shade inspo.

I’ll arrange this as a sluggish awakening, peeling again the layers of the taboo one after the other:

  • First, you could’t put on black and brown collectively in any respect. You may and may. They appear implausible collectively. You will see knits abound, lulling you into a way of consolation.
  • Second, you could’t put on black footwear and brown pants, or vice versa. London can be taught a factor or two, and I’ve discovered some fussy outdated males to show them.
  • And third, you could’t put on black and brown collectively whilst you’re in tailoring, or in conventional tailoring, or in formal tailoring. You’ll, by the point I am performed with you.

Warning: There may be some extremely darkish browns right here that simply seem like blacks to me. I do not assume these circumstances actually detract from the article, although. Browns will principally be darkish, however cowl a variety that features rust and “gentle browns” or darkish tans.

I like a broad spectrum of tailoring, from informal to straight up formal, and there isn’t any place I’ve discovered the place brown and black look unhealthy collectively.

That stated, you will see some patterns. I discover, specifically, numerous knits—turtlenecks, specifically.

I am going to additionally observe that I simply do not see numerous black fits on the market. You will see odd black trousers, however I haven’t got any related inspo with brown fits. I am certain a brown go well with and black knit would work fantastically collectively, although, strive it out and let me know the way it goes!
