Let me run a little theory past you guys. Maybe it’s super obvious to everyone else, but I’ve just been oblivious to it.

Pairing cognac leather with shades of blue is a foolproof combo. If I’m not mistaken, navy coloured men’s suits are traditionally paired with brown shoes.
Cognac tends to be on the warmer end of the scale. I believe you can get it by mixing a little red and yellow into what would otherwise be considered a neutral brown. Or rather, you can get it by adding a little bit of blue paint into a larger quantity of orange paint.
I think that’s why it works as well as it does. The blue/cognac combo is essentially a less visually assaulting way of wearing blue and orange together. They’re colour wheel opposites, but more subtle.
I feel like this is probably taught somewhere in a class I didn’t take.
