Should be fine. If it isn't too light, you've said dark brown so my assumption is it'll match a dark grey suit without an issue.
You could put them on and put up a photo for people to assess.
Doesn't matter. A briefcase is basically luggage. As long as it doesn't look like total crap, it's fine.
This. As he said, it is a piece of luggage, not a piece of clothing that necessarily needs to be matched. A brown leather bag can tie the whole thing together with some extra class.
First. World. Problem.
Next up, polishing your shoe soles....
There you go again...
First issue.... look between your legs.... is there something hanging there? Yes? Then why are you trying to match your shoes and purse? If its not a purse, then it doesnt matter if its neon blue.... its just a bag to carry shit in. As far as it mattering these days.... it never mattered all that much to men.
^ This. I was going to say that, too (though not as creatively). Men don't need to match briefcases and shoes/belts any more than women do with their briefcases. Whatever carries your stuff adequately without killing your arms or back and doesn't look beat up, you're good.
However, given the option, sticking to something in the same color family is still considered preferable.
I'm sure your penis shrunk just from reading his question.
Lots of people taking this way too seriously.
I think metrosexuality is a trend that punches above its weight in the media and in certain online forums, but has little real influence and fewer adherents.
As for AoM, it advocates dressing in an adult and classy manner, without promoting the sort of hyper-grooming that is characteristic of metrosexuality. Asking whether one should match one's briefcase to the rest of an outfit might just be a signal of confusion about what this entails, rather than a sign of the dreaded metrosexual influence.
My perspective comes from having spent most of my adult life around tough military men and civilian security professionals who had no questions about what manliness was all about. They were without exception confident men who knew what they were about and showed it in their professional and personal lives. I hope to encourage that on this forum.
