Chart Shoe Colors to Pant Colors

This Excel Chart Shows You What Color Shoes You Can Wear With What Color Pants

I often receive questions on what color shoes to wear with what color pants.  None of the questions are bad questions, sometimes it is hard to tell if things work together.  So I have decided to make a chart to try to help all of us out.  I hope the chart is easy to understand.  On the left we have the pant color and the right, the shoe color.  If you can wear a given color of shoe with a color of pants the color is present.  If you cannot, ‘NO’ will be present.
Now, obviously, there are exceptions to everything.  Sometimes certain shades of burgundy won’t go with burgundy pants or the grays and browns just won’t mix.  So this is only to act as a general guide and not as law, for it is mostly a subjective view on what I have seen done well and not well over the past few years.  I should note that some of you may disagree with some of the approved and not approved combinations, such as my lack of support for tan pants and black shoes.  Disagree all you want, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the pairing done well.
Anyway, you should get the idea by now.

Warning, content below represents a man's libidinous fascination with an automobile. It is not Lolita; after all Bradley Berman, the author, is not Nabokov and the Wraith is not underaged. Nonetheless, I find myself simultaneously repulsed... and seduced. David J. Katz

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
