How to wear a reddish brown suit?

I just bought a reddish brown suit. It isn’t maroon or burgundy; it is reddish brown. I think it looks great but how and where can I wear it?

I work in federal government in a pretty informal office (I usually wear sweaters) but am moving to a more formal one. I already have a grey, a blue and a few black ones. Is a reddish brown suit too much for the office?

Also, what sort of shoes and ties? I have a great pair of dark blue shoes. Would those match? How about a dark blue tie?

You'll be judged by your suits, OP. I wouldn't bust out the "reddish brown" outlier until you know you are well-liked at the new office.

How you just cut to the chase and wear a shirt that says “I’m a Bottom Faggot”? It will save everyone some time in getting to know you and your horrible taste in clothes.

You might as well put a sign around your neck saying "Please laugh at me behind my back".

Why did you buy the suit if you did not know how to wear it? Didn't the store you bought it at have suggestions and even try to sell you an entire outfit?

JC Penney?

R4 The salesman gave me some suggestions but I wanted to get the wisdom of my fellow DLers.

R3 Why don’t I just wear a sign that says “too ugly to live”?

Do people really care that much about a suit?

Do that movie thing where you place your clothes on the bed in variations.

Since the office is informal, maybe just wear the jacket in a smart-casual way (shirt, no tie, dark pants) and see how you feel.

Brown suit and blue shoes and blue tie? This is not the 1980s.

Sounds cute. Just wear it OP.

I’m far more concerned about the blue shoes. The only blue men’s shoes I’ve ever see are suede ones with the orangey-y rubber soles. Are they those?

No, the shoes are like the ones here, but without the pattern.

Anyway the suit hugs my ass amazingly and makes my (already pretty large dick) look even bigger.

Oh then, that sounds perfect for the office.

...and I got crap for wearing TAN...

Weston had navy blue penny loafers, way back when. I loved them but I only wore them casually never to the office.

The red brown suit must be atrocious. Does it look like shit out of a sick person's ass? But seriously, if you couldn't picture how to accessorise why did you buy such an abomination?

I'll take this back if you are a black man, or very dark South Asian. Or aboriginal. Those skin colors can often wear many tones well.

R9, a suit jacket is not meant to take the place of a blazer. Wear both pieces or none,

Wear it with a simple white t-shirt with the words “Whoomp! There It Is” bedazzled on it and a little black hat.

OP, maybe you should ask the opinion of one of your bitches before you send them out to work the street.

Native Americans should stay from the red to yellow spectrum, R16. Brings out the red to yellow in the skin. Silver jewelry always looks better on them than gold.

is it any of these shades?

It’s the auburn of suits.

Wear it to Happy Hour at Bonanza steak house.

If by reddish brown you mean rust, or auburn you would pair it with black shoes, white/winter white shirt and black tie that has a bit of texture or very subtle pattern. However, the season has changed, so into the closet this likely disaster goes until next fall.

R17 In an informal office OP is going to stand out as a George Santos-like obvious gay. Big dick or not. Those hideous blue shoes with a reddish brown suit especially will give it away.

Is this how you dress for the office? You look like a giant turd.
