Long time lurker, first time poster. I am experiencing an unusual wardrobe quandry: I recently acquired a very fine double-breasted, linen waistcoat with lapels, for wearing with morning dress. It is a colour I don't normally wear - a salmon-pink/peach but is such a fine garment, that fits me fantastically, and is in such thick Irish linen, that I couldn't leave it behind. My dilemma is what to pair it with - something I am finding difficult as I don't normally wear this colour. I was thinking very pale blue shirt and a powder blue (almost silver) tie, or a lavender tie but am not sure about any of those. Will go to Jermyn Street and try a load of shirts and ties but some suggestions before then would be a huge help. Can the greater wisdom of SF please help with such a sartorial question?
