(Yet another) What I could wear with ...

I recently bought a Borrelli white cotton sportcoat without thinking what I could wear it with. After I brought it home I realized my choices are not as wide as I'd have thought. Any tips?

Taupe or olive cotton trousers. White suede bucks. Brightly colored John Smedley or similar cotton interlock polo shirt Fabric belt That's just what I'd do.

Ligght blue Jeans. Black shirt.

Unless you are David Beckham or starring in Love Boat, nothing. Or maybe you could pair it with a black shirt. Seriously now : tan or kaki (the colour) pair of pants are great with white. Try military green or coral red for shirts. .luc

Maybe you can borrow something from this guy... PS: Serious question here: Would you have have bought it had it not been borelli?

Well...every now and then I get nostalgic and head back over there to see whats what. I loved the White Lacoste Sneakers touch... Hey...Jcusey...what can you tell us about THOSE shoes? Huh? Think you know everything about quality shoes???

For spring? Natural linen pants, linen shirt or a light sweater or tee. For a comfortable day out you could dress up jeans and a tee shirt nicely with this jacket and some brown/tan suede shoes.

Matching white trousers and a pastel t-shirt works great for Tubbs. P.S. Don't forget to push up the sleeves.

Pink chinos?

It can be done, and when done right, will look stunning I am not a big fan of working with huge contrasts when wearing a white jacket so I would echo what others have recommended. Perhaps beige linen/thin cotton pants with a light blue or light pink linen/thin cotton shirt.

Linen blue trousers sound right to me, with a linen shirt in light colour. Cotton and linen should goes well, right?

The thing is, the pick stitchings are beautiful on the coat in this colour and I couldn't resist. Unfortunately I don't have any jeans ... However, it is about time I dig out my Ludwig Reiter trainers.
