A Brown & Green Color Combination in Men’s Wear

Wearing Stylish Color Combinations for Men

A Brown & Green Color Combination in Men’s Wear

Quote of the day: “Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” Francis Chan

I have to admit that I love all colors! But what’s especially fun for me is to put different color combinations together that maybe you wouldn’t always think about! Now when I say this, that doesn’t mean that I put this outfit together for my husband, Rob! No, he styled this one himself. But he’s been around me long enough to learn and enjoy the process too!

Rob’s Outfit: We were hanging out in Cherry Creek after getting our hair cuts this one day!

If you’re not familiar with Denver, then I’d describe Cherry Creek as a stylish area of town! Therefore, when we go get our hair cut appointments, Rob knows I expect him to wear more than just blue jeans!

But really, brown jeans aren’t too loud or obnoxious for those men that still like classic styles! Levis even has some great brown jeans that don’t cost an arm and a leg here or here! Rob happened to get his pair at H&M many years ago!!

Dressing Fashionably with H&M

I talked about how I got my husband to wear necklaces back in the post when we were “borrowing” his clothing items!!

And he really does wear this jewelry when we go out!! This particular one is a portion of a map that looks so interesting!

I realize that many men wouldn’t consider wearing a necklace (or as my husband calls it, stud apparel) but come on, doesn’t everyone want to be “batman?” Or this one is so architecturally interesting that I’m sure I’d be stealing it quite often!!

Fashion for Men over 50

As for the rest of the outfit, I think it’s quite simple!

Rob matched his sneakers to his jeans, and the two shirts are basically the same colors of each other. I just think it’s a little different because you don’t always see brown combined with green!

But you have to check out some of the funny graphic t-shirts available. Which guys wouldn’t want this one? Or be thought of as a comic hero wearing this one?

Green & Brown for Men's Fashion

The green button up shirt is a linen blend which is perfect for the warmer months!!

We bought this one at H&M also many years ago. I think Rob is more apt to try some of the items I suggest when they aren’t super expensive. I realize there is quite a big deal about fast fashion going around the internet, and I understand the concept. But I also appreciate not having to spend too much on certain pieces!

Putting together a different color combination, can be a super easy way to breathe some new life into your closet! And I think this holds true whether you are a male or a female! What do you think? Have you ever worn green and brown together like this?

Thanks to you all!

  • I agree – brown and green can be a really good combination.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’m glad you think so too!! 🙂

  • Love this outfit on him. He does a pretty good job!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      He’s really turned into a stylish dude!! At least when I tell him I’m going to take his photo for the blog, LOL!!

  • Stacey Waltzer

    I am loving those brown shoes!!! I also like how you add the links of where to find some of the items.

  • sue

    I love the colour combo and also featuring a guy!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Sue!!

  • That is a great color combo! And how cool is that necklace? I love it!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lindsey!! I love it when Rob pulls out his necklaces—they really add to his outfits, I think!!

  • Donna Vallance

    love those colours they are great. perfect for summer x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Donna!! 🙂

  • Rosy Ferry

    This colour combo works so well! I’m going to take my husband shopping asap for something similar, I really think it’ll look great. I also love necklaces on a man too 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Rosy!! I think it’s still manly enough to be for our guys, but interesting enough not to be boring!!

  • Love this color combo. My hubby and son both wear khaki and greens all of the time! I love your selection of mens’ graphic teed, so cool, and well priced!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Aren’t those the funnest t-shirts? It makes me want to buy all of them…ha ha!! This is how I get into trouble!!

  • Versatilestylebytracey

    My 17 year old son wears this color combo all the time, in fact it is his favorite. He is not a fan of jean material and sticks to his Old Navy chinos. He has green tops in both light and deeper shades to wear year round. My husband loves his tan jeans as that was very new and different for him. As for a necklace none of the guys in my world will indulge , although they all insist a nice watch is a must and have tried bracelets. Fun to see menswear. Recently I had to ask DH to knock off his Patriots gear every day since the Superbowl win.. It was getting to be too much.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That made me spurt out the water that was in my mouth Tracey—-the superbowl was how many months ago??? ha ha ha ha!!
      I love that your son wears this color combo—I think it’s still manly, but not as expected as other combinations!!
      I think Rob doesn’t mind the “stud apparel” now because he’s used to it. And since I got him to start wearing it when we were first in love (and he’d do anything for me) it’s now stuck as a habit!! He has one bracelet—but that’s something he doesn’t wear as much!!
      Happy Weekend 🙂

  • Terri Webster Schrandt

    Looking great! I happen to like those colors to wear myself 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      That’s fabulous to hear Terri!! Because really, they look great on everyone!!
      Happy Weekend!! XOXO

  • Queen of Rods

    Rob looks great; I especially like the brown jeans and shoes together. Green is my favorite color, so this is a combination that I wear frequently, although in a different shade than Rob’s combo. Now I’ll have to find a shirt more in the same color range as his 🙂 The map necklace is awesome also.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Janet!!
      I love my browns even more than black, so I’d wear this too!! I just don’t have a ton of green right now in my closet!! Hopefully that’ll change soon!!

  • Hey Jodie! I’ve been out of the loop for a week since my computer died so I’m just catching up. How are you able to get Rob to model? Was it your idea or his? I love this addition to your blog — you could do so much with this! If your model stays agreeable that is! This can help your readers shop for the men in their lives. You are so creative. I’m surprised you went into dentistry and not a creative field. Fun!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Rob’s become agreeable to this since we are already out with the camera anyways!! And he’s such a good sport and nice man, that he lets me twist his arm—even on the things he doesn’t think he want to do—ha ha!!
      My other choice for careers was to be an interior decorator!! That probably would have been right up my alley—I can’t even remember why I ended up choosing dentistry between the two. Except probably because it seemed more serious!!

  • Charlotte Miller

    Rob’s looking sharp again. He’s so congenial to put up with all of us women.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Yes he is!! 🙂

  • Tina von tinaspinkfriday

    Dear Jodie, these colours together are wonderfull and cool.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Tina!!

  • I love this cool casual men’s look! So excited that you are sharing men’s fashion here. Love the color combo. Very masculine and cool.


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kathrine!!
      And the great thing is Rob even put this together himself!! He’s learned so much in the last 10 years!! 🙂

  • Judy Gramith

    Rob looks really good in green and I think brown is a color that can be worn with MANY colors! What’s more neutral than brown? Well, maybe beige. Denim blue is NOT really a neutral “color” but our cultural perception of blue denim says that it goes with everything. Actually this view can be applied to most of the colors men typically wear!
    I think men need to wear colors that are flattering near their faces just as we do! Most men’s pants are shades of denim, black, brown, beige, (khaki) and navy. I think those colors go with everything.
    Rob is clearly an open minded man who is willing to consider men’s “fashion”. I admire his self confidence and his sense of style. LOOKIN GOOD ROB!!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      But you’d laugh if you saw Rob from 15 years ago, Jude!!
      It was tan pants and small plaid shirts—only!! Nothing interesting or fashionable!! He has grown so much, and I know his confidence has too!! That’s the power of clothes!!
      Have a fabulous weekend!! Are you doing anything fun??

      • Judy Gramith

        Are packing and purging fun?
        Happy weekend to you too Jodie!

        • Jodie Filogomo

          Yes…yes those are fun activities! Mainly because of the end point!! (And actually I love to purge—I know, call me strange!!)

  • donnanance

    Rob looks great…nice styling! I think he likes this fashion business as much as you! It is nice to see a fella who enjoys looking sharp.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks so much Donna!! I always am surprised that more men don’t try to look nice!! Remember when they always wore suits and hats and looked so dapper??
      The bank we visit is in a grocery store and two of the men who work in the bank are always dressed so spiffy!! We always comment on their nice shirts, and one time I said that they should give lessons to the men walking by (because you know how sloppy the guys you see in the grocery store are). And the one bank worker said “no way”. Because then they wouldn’t stand out as much!! Funny, huh?
      Have a great weekend!!XOXOX

  • I really like the brown and green, they work well together X #wotw

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks!! I’m going to try this combo this weekend with my outfit!!

  • Mireille

    Very cool and stylish! Wish I could get my hubby to wear things a lil out of his comfort zone 😊

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Rob wasn’t always like this—it’s been baby steps! Plus making him watch What Not To Wear all those years helped too!!

  • Karen

    Rob is such a good sport! But I get the impression he really enjoys this! My sister and I were in such an area last weekend and I know what you mean about more upscale. He’s dressed perfectly for that, while still remaining casual. He did a great job! I really like that necklace!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks tons Karen!!
      Of course, I like him to dress stylish all the time! Except when we are lounging at home!!
      Have a fantastic weekend!!
