In case it helps, here's a shot of #84 in real life:
Over at A Suitable Wardrobe today, Will has a post repeating and clarifying his dislike of blue shirts with grey jackets as being directed more specifically toward charcoal. http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/2013/02/i-contradict-myself-sometimes.html. I'm curious what others think about this. I recently received my first real charcoal suit, and I frequently find that the combinations that work well with my lighter greys don't look quite right with it? For example,...
I was looking at the book in part because, in a thread at LL, Frank Shattuck had said very good things about it.
The dominant background color is actually the salmon, but the green/turquoise is fairly prominent. That's why I asked.FYI, this isn't me. Its from the Alan See's blog and something I liked but never would have thought of, let alone done, so I was interested in your thoughts.

Clearing out some ties, I've never or rarely worn: Panta grey herringbone cashmere 6 fold, unworn, SOLD Kiton six fold, blue with gold stripes, unworn, $50, Facconable cashmere, burgundy with blue, worn 1x, SOLD Drakes, navy with white bar stripe, unworn, SOLD Sam Hober, woven navy pindot, worn 2 or 3x, SOLD All prices shipped CONUS
I like the tie but agree on the square.With odd jackets? I think this rarely looks right.Agree. My better judgement was overcome by Foo's advocacy of cream silk. White linen would have been better.Not so bright, and not so obtrusive in real life. I can't manage to take accurate color pics with an iphone.[/quote]
