My one question would be what trousers you'd consider wearing with this. While my initial inclination was cream or white pants, I feel this jacket requires a neutral (read: white) shirt. While you might also be able to get away with a pale yellow, do you fear that the jacket encourages an overdose of white when worn?
Feel free to tell me that you can never have too much white. Just my concern.
Thanks guys for the input, opened an interesting discussion re what to wear with it. I think it would go with a neutral trouser colour, white linen maybe, and a if a white shirt is worn with it it should be brokwn up with the stripes and background of the jacket, that way there's not too much colour overload. The adventurous might even want to sport a pale pink with it maybe!
