    I agree about the whole tonal thing - but I think that there are simply too many leather items to make matching everything a requirement. Jay, you have a Scaramonga bag right? Do you match that to everything too? Because transferring the contents of your bag every time you change shoes is a bit girly

    I would say that the lightest brown accessory I own is my bag (also from scaramanga) but even that, now it has been weather beaten and used quite a lot is relatively dark, my boots are quite a rich, dark chocolaty brown (I have polished them slightly darker) and so is my belt so I think they will work fine. I'm still going to investigate the brown gloves I've seen more fully before I make take the leap.

    Says the guy who has stilettos in his wishlist :P

    I only really wear brown/tan shoes (I do have black but they only get worn with black suits for work/evening wear, when I'm not carrying the bag), so it's not really an issue. Basically, all my browns more or less match as I'm a huge fan of tans and reddish browns which all work tonally with one another.

    Touche, touche. I believe Cuban heels is the term though!
