Re: the debate about tan & grey. IMO, these colours do theoretically work together... but it is easily the hardest "classic" colour combination to get to work in practice. You can't just combine any grey with any tan. It has to be exactly the right shade of grey for exactly the right shade of tan. I don't how to describe colour properties technically enough to be precise about this, but from personal experience, I'm disappointed with 9/10 grey+tan outfits I put together because of this issue. Not enough to actually change outfits (I'm lazy), but I do notice. As a result, I've largely stopped pairing grey jackets with tan trousers. I might try it next week, just for funsies, inspired by this debate. If I retain the motivation, I'll try to show the difference in overall effect between two slightly different tan trousers with the same grey odd jacket. (There are other points I'm not a fan of re: stitches' outfit but others have already mentioned those, and I wanted to talk more about the colour pairing).
Anyway, I wasn't going to post this in this thread, but I figure stitchy needs a break from being the centre of negative attention, so I'll give you all something else to rag on, with this very unpolished, very layabout look for a layabout sort of day!
Maybe if you weren't dressed like a GQ-vomit collage people would address you respectfully. Also, gentlemen are some of the rudest people around.
