You can do this but there are so many other better options.
-The jacket will look like an orphaned suit jacket.
-A brown or cream sportscoat will look better with navy trousers.
-This look will look much better inverted (navy sportscoat, light grey trousers.)
These were posted by AAS (An Acute Style) in the WAYWT thread. I really liked his use of the cardigans, I hope he doesn't mind me reposting them. Does anyone think they would be improved if he used a light blue shirt instead of a white shirt? I don't, but am curious what others think.
Anyone have any advice on where to look for brown pinstripe suiting? There's one in the P&B Universal book (15 oz.) but I want to compare it to other samples.
I've looked in just about all of the Lesser and Harrison books, and the Minnis books.
Stripe needs to be white. Fabric needs to be worsted (I know Minnis has a brown chalk stripe flannel.)
Agreed. For a suit that's going to be worn in the summer, I'd rather go with linen for either color - they look better in that fabric IMHO, so why not?For a fall/winter suit, brown worsted or flannel is fine.
