A question I’m being asked more and more often is whether or not black and brown can be worn together. A lot of guys who aren’t necessarily “fashion forward” see it being done by people who they deem as stylish so they feel like it’s too bold a move for them to pull off. I disagree. Whereas I will NEVER condone wearing a black belt with brown shoes or vice versa, the two colors don’t have to be mortal enemies.

By basing an outfit with a majority of black like I did here, you’re giving yourself a platform on which to build. The same can be done with brown when wearing a black jacket, but I think it works better with black as the undertone. A simple black tee and jeans create a base and then the brown of this LC King jacket can be a pop of color without being too bold. I especially like the length and color of this jacket. Perfect for an overcast day like today.

I added the knit cap because my hair looked like shit, haha. The white sneakers were a good way to break up the black but I could’ve easily also worn a pair of lighter brown boots. I’d recommend attempting to match your boots as closely as possible to the color of jacket you’re wearing, otherwise it starts to become a bit too cluttered with blacks and browns.

Super simple look, still allowing you to showcase your style.

Check out LC King here, they have TONS of great workwear stuff. Super high quality for great prices.
