Mailbag: Navy suit with black shoes. No wonder they lost the empire. | Fail

Mat writes: [Monday] you dissed wearing black shoes with a navy suit, but you should know that this is a regional thing. I've lived in the UK and in England you would ONLY wear black shoes with your navy suit." Answer: We love a lot of British crap, from Top Gear to Ted Baker, but Britness in itself is a pretty dubious endorsement. They also eat Spotted Dick, clotted cream, "fried bread" (which is really a square of lard), and treat toothbrushes like they were Kryptonite. Trust us, stick with brown shoes. And floss regularly.
