I have a few questions about faux pau's so, hopefully we can have them addressed.

Black pants, brown shoes?

Black coat, brown shoes?

- Any variation of black w/ brown?

Black coat w/ brown accessories (messenger bag?)

Well, I'm not quite sure where this is going to go..but I'll leave it for now.

Honestly, black and brown go together great, I think it just depends on the shades of each, the layering involved, and what other neutral colors are being added.

Brown messenger bags go with everything...I love the look of a nicely worn in weekend or messenger bag.

Definitely check out Margiela's looks, he usually plays a lot with browns paired with other dark colors.

If you've got natural style and look good, no combination is off limits.

If you don't, even the most basic shit will look awkward.

holiday party tips that should carry over into your fashion:

dont *not* be drunk, dont be *totally* drunk

dont worry about other people, everyones always obsessed with themselves first

gloves are smart, scarves are smarter

save room for pie

dont bring up: homosexuality, politics, religion, sex lives, past relationships

and remember that when people result to shit talking other people its because they have nothing to say and are afraid of people figuring them out. so talk about movies and books instead.

at a black and white function, color flair makes you not look like the dinner staff

Heh, reminds me of what Ryan said about Holiday dressing...

Ryan seems like a great guy. I was in South Willard for like forty minutes a few weeks ago trying stuff on / talking to Ryan. Buy his clothing, his buys are extremely well edited. Hardly anything I wouldn't wear gladly to be found.

Ryan is one of the coolest store owners I have ever dealt with. Whenever I'm in LA I always stop by and shoot the shit with him. His store is excellent too and with Dries coming in Spring, it's going to be even better.

The real faux pas I have seen is a woman wearing those stockings which are supposed to be worn inside the pants like underwear, as outerwear.

Not unlike wearing those grandma underpants outside.

Gloves, scarves, beanies and jackets (a combination of) worn with shorts in winter.

It happens every year here in Australia.

I think theres a difference between faux pas and just plain stupidity lol.

A faux pas is usually something random like don't wear black pants and brown shoes in the winter... why not? WTF? like where does that even come from.

Stupidity is wearing gloves and a scarf with shorts lol. Its either cold or its not.

No, neither do I. Maybe it's a Sydney thing - lawl.

I do, however, see scarves with t-shirts, and it pisses me off to no end.

My friend does that if the weather is above 40. I've asked him about it, but apparently his bottom half just doesn't get cold.

And scarves with T-Shirts is fine as long as the scarf isn't huge. If it's something light and drapey I don't see the problem.
