99% of the time, dark blue. Black often makes you look like a waiter, or a try-hard. And black doesn't stay black for very long - once it's gone that slightly 'grey' colour (which it usually does after about three washes) it looks instantly tired and scruffy.

I prefer blue. Black is a bit bleak. But it depends what you’re wearing it with and what for

Definitely blue then. Just make sure it’s a different shade than your jeans

As Sammylou40 says, blue is the way to go here, making sure it's clearly differentiated from the jeans. Almost black jeans, a black T shirt and a black leather jacket will make you look like Johnny Cash, which worked for him, but maybe not you

This, Black is generally pretty high maintenance. it's good for logo T's for the contrast though.

The older I get, the more I like orange as a colour. Difficult to wear well, though.

Won't dark blue fade as well though, or at least noticeably after a few washes?

:laugh: they make me think of Oxford Street. I wonder if they're still there? Always seemed to be outside Selfridges for some reason...

Maybe I'll stick to greys and neutrals after all...

Yes! Classic opposites on the colour wheel, and that's always been my favourite maximum contrast pairing (I also like magenta and yellow, but that doesn't find much use in fashion, or at least not in my fashion). I have a bit of a thing with very brightly coloured socks with otherwise dour suits in charcoals and dark navy. I have a drawer full of them, and the washing machine doesn't seem to want to eat them, which is good. I'm more restrained with ties, but I like a solid, strong colour.

Classic and classy. Can’t go wrong
