Last July I ranted against the wearing of silver-gray cross-training shoes, “especially ones with a kind of woven-stitch texture and a slight color accent, like pink or violet.” The other absolute-never-wear in my book is anything maroon, but especially maroon sweaters. I’m mentioning this because it just hit me today that John C. Reilly wears the bad shoes and the bad sweater in Roman Polanski‘s Carnage.
