[access-uk] Re: The Cobolt colour detector

There is an old saying that goes red and green should never be seen.  Blues, 
greens, purples, white, and black go together, although I think that navy 
blue doesn't go well with black or brown, faded blue is fine. Pink, red, 
orange, yellow, white, and black go together, and it is cool for men to wear 
pink shirts.  All the earth tones go great together like green, brown, khaki 
and all the shades in between.  Stripes and checks don't go together.  The 
best advice is to wear something that you are comfortable in and that makes 
you feel confident.
