whoa cowboy. youre WAY off base here. grey/khaki do fine together. Cuccinelli pretty much based his entire brand off grey and tan together.
I do agree reg: the shoes though.
Whatever the #menswear or SF wisdom says, it doesn't work in this case IMHO - it may also be the combination of 1, the similarity in tone; and 2. the difference in texture and the contrast between the neatness of the jacket and the wrinking / rolling of the trousers, rather than just the 'colours'.
And BTW - if you go over to Cucinelli's website and check out the summer collection, I think you will find that while there is alot of grey and khaki, it is cut and mixed with a lot of darker colours, particularly burgundy and navy blue, which was exactly what I was suggesting. Go on: have a look...
I agree with Monkey: I like the jacket a lot, and the shoes too. But somehow the lack of a strong countering tone leaves the overall image a little..washed out. This might even be a combo to suit the infamous "how to wear" navy trousers.
Exactly. I love the jacket too, and it would be superb with navy or burgundy trousers (just like the new Cucinelli collection, as it happens...). (However I was assuming that the wrinkled chinos were inspired by this week's challenge and were therefore to be taken as the basis of things).
