Are there any more pictures of your closet to be seen elsewhere? Trousers & Shoes?
Decided short notice to crash a friend's graduation party. It was a semi-formal evening event, but I unfortunately do not own a dinner jacket. I do however have a ruffled front tux shirt, black bowtie & black studs & cufflinks, so having learned from SF that in bad light dark blue looks like black, I made do with a blazer, and got as close to black&white as I could. Didn't think go shoot a proper pic before I go out, so I just grabbed a quick phone self-portrait in a...

My personal preference is for mid and light gray ... any variation from stone to charcoal can be a winner also, when done right. Some examples to start it off ......

I have a hard time choosing between navy and grey, any nice collections might certainly push me in one...
