post #74086 of 78722
Pingson, that's a grey SC? Have we had a grey SC Friday challenge yet? Gray SC on top can be a puzzle. Dirnelli on tumblr has been challenged by this for one of his gray check SC recently.

I like the idea of off white but not too yellow for trousers with light grey. Less butter and more half and half if that makes sense (coffee creamer for you across the pond). Not sure where the cream trousers you have on lie
In that spectrum.

I would go with lighter brown shoes though.

The SC is a kind of olive green with blue/brown and cream over checks - here's a close-up photo with slightly better representation of colours:



Agree on the lighter shoes though....

Tweeds, or snuff suede perhaps?

So, totally nitpicking as a way of thinking out loud about this interesting fit.

 

I like Cleav's suggestion of snuff suede for shoes. I think that would be perfect. I feel like a less saturated blue shirt might be nicer so the central contrast is the green versus cream (rhymes!).

 

Unlike Stitch, I don't mind the contrast between the top and bottom and this pic I think shows the SC/trouser combination in a more flattering light (the cream looks less yellow here to me). That said, I wonder if light brown flannels might have been better with green (though you'd have to think about contrast with shoes)?

I LOVE the cream flannels in Pingson's fit. I had forgotten that I own some myself until I saw the fit on tumblr this morning. I need to get them tailored, but perhaps had I thought of pairing them the way P has with that jacket I would have kept my Chester Barrie tweed.

Interestingly, snuff suede was my other option this morning fing02[1].gif

The Sc pairs really well with brown flannels, just thought I needed to try something new.

As for the shirt, I thought that a lighter blue shirt might have looked too washed out, hence the slightly bluer shirt.

Spring is definitely in the air; was able to wear this suit without its waistcoat for this first time this year:
