Coming from CM perhaps I can explain it. This is a pretty classic American Trad/Ivy look. Blazers, light colored trousers, and a button down shirt is pretty standard casual wear (casual because it is not, in fact, a suit but a sport coat and trousers) on the east coast. Maybe I'm telling you stuff you already know. The problem I see is that the proportions aren't very good.

I should say that the jacket is a dark army green. The closeup shows green oneoniyor but apparently appears brown to others.
