Dark gray Harris Tweed, navy sweater, and blue check shirt over olive chinos.
The cycle does seem hilariously predictable.I can't say I've read what you are referring to... book? article? link?
I'm sure that is where the "no northern lights" rule came from. It can be harder to pull off. But, I love a good tan/khaki/sand/camel jacket and have one in each of those colors. For anyone wishing to be liberated from thinking they are breaking a rule when they wear a lighter jacket, browse through some resources below, make sure you are focusing on coherency/contrast, and...
My thoughts as well. Eventually people graduate from that thread and want to move on to real advice once they know the rules and basics for coherency in dress.The one item on your list above that I take issue with is the "northern lights" supposedly being incorrect.

Yeah, no offense to anyone who does it, but the "non-chalant" leaving unbuttoned of jacket cuffs has never sat well with me. From day 1 it struck me as trying too hard, and frankly, it never seemed to me like it would have the desired effect that it's advocates hoped.I think any average joe in the masses, if they even noticed to begin with, would assume you were actually missing a button. Not something most SF members want other people thinking. I think it would be a...
