: : we have had a disussion in work and are a little confused as to the which phrase is correct is it ' red and green should never be seen' or 'blue and green should never be seen?

: A Google war gives it to blue and green, 437 to 139. Please note that that makes it more frequent, not more correct.

I'd love to know the answer to this. My Gran said "Blue and green should never be seen, except with something in between", but I'm unable to find a source. And "Never wear brown in town" was (according to my Gran) also once held to be true (for men, I think). Pamela
