What shoe and shirt color should I match with a dark brown velvet sport coat? I’ll be wearing jeans (it’s casual). I have heard that the coat and the shoes must match, but the only brown shoes I have are a lighter color than the coat. I have black shoes as well.

Regarding the shirt, there’s a brown shirt I like but I don’t know if it’s acceptable to use it with a brown coat (they are both dark). Maybe it is better to use a lighter shirt?


@KillerWolverine Please don't sugar coat it, Jason Campbell is apparently unaware of the endzone and how to throw to it.
