What do you guys think? Should you mix your different colored leather pieces or match the same colors?
Unless you are going for a very conservative/classic look, mixing leather colors is fine. I wear black leather shoes with a tan bag all the time, and I have honestly never given it a second thought.

There was an old fashion rule that said not to match brown and black in general, so that might be why you learned it. I have some old style books from the 30s, 50s and 60s and I am sure the authors of those would not encourage mixing leathers. Esp. seeing as wearing brown shoes and bags after 18:OO was a big faux pas, even though the shoes and bag were a very expensive alligator leather that your husband bought you and you wanted to show them off (I may or may not be paraphrasing one of the books here).If you wore a brown bag and a black shoe people would be so confused regarding what time of day it was! Imagine the mayhem!

So like Nymphaea said, do what you like

I don't know what you guys call that item, but we call it mods coat or mods parka instead of its official military name.
so, how about the padded one ?
syte now has it in black and khaki. the model makes it look like a short coat but it is definitely on the big side. especially since it's for men.
