Leather jacket and trousers

Hey everyone,

I just got a new black leather jacket, moto racer style, and I was wondering if you can wear a black leather jacket with navy, brown or pastel green trousers?

Thank you

Brown stains on nape of the neck on shirt

As the title and tags imply…this problem has prevented me from wearing my nicer dress shirts for a while now…

I have a tendency to get brown stains on the BACK of the collar for my dress shirts…(the backside of my neck aka nape area). Of course, I shower every day and I’m a clean person…but as an African-Canadian…our skin gets ashy if we don’t use lotion on it…so I have a feeling maybe the lotion is what is rubbing off on the neck area…but even when I didn’t care for my lotion as much from before…I don’t know why the stains were still there…and I definitely don’t know what to do about it. I’m not sure if its because I have dark skin that the skin…is just rubbing off on the shirt…as stupid as that sounds…I scrub my neck with an aloofa in the shower daily so my neck can’t be that dirty. I don’t sweat a lot…so I don’t really understand this and how to prevent it because the stains are hard to remove and ruin nicer shirts…especially white and light blue ones.

Sorry if this sounds strange or comes across as a race-specific issue when it may in fact not be. I just couldn’t really word it better in a better way and felt just saying it as I see it would make it easier to get advice than beating around the bush…

There must be a powder, old wives tail, or solution to this. I doubt this only applies to african-canadians/americans…likely any darker skinned man has this problem. Thanks.

Brown sports jacket on African-American Skin?

Hey guys,

As I think I’ve mentioned before I am about 5’7 and have african american skin, similar in shade to that of a Kanye West. I’ve been reading about warm and cool coloring and how it influences what clothes look gold and its not helped much since its said things such if silver jewelry looks best on you, you are cool….if you have green looking veins you are warm…Both apply to me so it cancels out and no knowledge is gained.

This just to provide some background that I have been trying to do my homework and am not just offloading a non effort to you guys…My reasoning for wanting to understand this all is because I’ve been considering looking for a casual sports jacket that is brown and similar in color to a….mars bar…as bad a description as that is. Actually slightly lighter than a mars barto be honest. So my question is whether it would look good or make sense to venture into this casual color option for a sports jacket because I won’t buy something if its not going to look good and I can’t tell if that kind of brown will make me look naked or not buy just looking at brown jackets online and such…and if you didnt know the skin blending 100% with the jacket look is not what I’m going for. Trying to make the eyes pop out buy matching a brown slighlty lighter than my face…not sure if it makes any sense at all. Thanks.

Do these brown shoes go with navy and grey suits?

I’m concerned the color of the soles is too flashy (non-conservative) to go with suits. I’m having a hard time picturing it in my head. I need some advice!

Is it possible to match Black and Brown?

I am looking to get a suit to match the deep Brown fedora I currently have. Woudl it be possible to match the brown with black? I plan on also having an overcoat to go with the rest of the “uniform” if you will.

Are black & Brown a no-no color, or is there a way to pull it off. Are there any other ways to use brown with any other colors?


What Shoes and Shirts Go with a Brown Corduroy Jacket?

I have a medium to light brown corduroy sport coat. One day I decided to wear it and blue jeans together. Suddenly, I found myself a bit confused. What color(s) shirt and shoes should I wear? So my question is, what would be the proper colors to wear* with a brown corduroy sport coat?
