I like dark brown for my trousers, and not denim (not that you get dark brown denim anyway, nor that I like denim, I don't really). If this is fashion, it's been a many-years thing: most of the time, the only way I can get cheap dark brown trousers is by mail order, from these leaflets that seem to be aimed at a certain type of older gentleman, who wears cheerful pullovers. (I suppose I'm approaching the clientele, though I prefer cardigans [another thing hard to find], but it has been the case for many years that they're the only source of CDBT.)I like green, turquoise/petrol, blue and purple. Fashion mostly
likes black, charcoal, grey, beige, fawn, brown, camel, taupe,
mushroom, stone, sepia, and occasionally pink or red. There was
even one dreadful year when mustard was all the rage.
I remember going into Harvey Nicks in Edinburgh shortly after it
opened, hoping for great things, and being stunned by the dreary
sight of racks of grey-black-and-brown clothes covering the
whole of the ladies' fashion floor. Since then I've only ever
gone in there if accompanying someone else who wanted to go in,
and I have never seen anything there I'd have been tempted to
You are so NAOU! (Though I do like a nice deep cheerful yellow myself) In this case the only shop for me is TKMaxx - I think there's one in Edinburgh - where you can get stuff all the colours of the rainbow precisely because they're not thought to be saleable in the fashion shops.
