If Brown were a man, he’d be warm, down-to-earth and someone you’d like to take home to meet your folks.
Quite contrary to its portrayal of one with a boring demeanour, it’s actually the one colour you will always find in a wardrobe, alongside whites and blacks…because of its sturdy and dependable qualities. Infact brown suits were quite popular back in the 1930s…ofcourse with time that has diminished to just the basics. Even so, this dependable colour has much to offer through its wide range of hues and shades when putting together a smart & chic ensemble. And while most browns work better when sporting smart casuals…many do make it to a boardroom if worn right.
So let’s look at some of our very earthy options.
