Today was the dreaded navy pents fit.
I didn't set out to end up in navy pents. But that's where I ended up after rejecting just about every other option. I would appreciate thoughts for what else might have worked. I guess some kind of brown or umber, but I think the pair I used to have in that color fell victim to my latest closet cleanse, because I couldn't find them. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Barba linen/cotton shirt, pale pink IRL, btw
Zegna linen/cotton tie
Unknown wool/silk tie
Paul Stuart hopsack wool trou
J&M Imperial shoes.
I for one don't subscribe to the "no navy trousers" idea (I'm even wearing a pair as I write this ), but I think that when navy trousers work (as they do in GMMcLs fit!) there is often another option that would work equally well or better. In this case a pair of dar grey/charcoal trousers would look splendid, I think.
