In Praise of Navy - Page 2

post #16 of 219
While it's not dress clothing per se, I have a half zip wool sweater in navy that is my go to article of casual clothing.

Also looks good in SW, designer and other modes.

Great thread. I always find myself reaching for my navy suit, so much that's it's getting pretty threadbare. Kinda makes me sad, like I need to find another friend soon.

If I remember correctly, this suit was grey? Points for the navy tie though.

I've always liked navy and became an even bigger fan when I realized that there are multiple shades of navy and when I began to appreciate texture in clothing. Excluding casual clothing, I only own 2 navy blazers, two navy suits (one with a micro-herringbone weave), 2 pairs of navy odd trousers (one a flannel), and a midnight navy tuxedo (also with a micro-herrringbone weave). The flannel navy trousers go with anything charcoal gray would, except a navy blazer.

Shades of blue are the only colors that work well for a monochromatic look IMO.

As for color combinations, I can't think of anything nicer than a navy suit, brown shoes, light blue shirt, grey or brown tie with specks of pink or pink details on the PS

Is this tie too wide for his smaller torso?

Love Navy.

Navy+brown+gray...I could wear a combination of these three every day.

Love it, and most other shades of blue. The lighter, the better.

something about that color makes me want to trust the guy to do my bank loans or investigate some FBI matter for me

Navy, while tasteful, is never interesting to me. I do not, and never intend on owning a navy suit. Royal Blue on the other hand...!

Agree - blue on blue works well.

Really like that colour of suit. Its not navy, though. Too much grey in it (glaucous?) - which gives some contrast to the tie and is probably why it works so well as part of that scheme. Seems to be a bit of a move to lighter navy - or lighter and greyer like this one.

Big fan also. However, when living in Germany a few years back, au courant German friends unfortunately convinced me to wear black suits/blazers. Took me years to finally return navy to its rightful place.
