Hickey Freeman Wool/Cashmere/Linen/Silk (various mixes) (Made in USA)

 

Facconable Silks (Made in Italy)

My leery paisley tolerance is unusually high, and though I kind of like the one on the right, neither of them is in quiet good taste.

 

The second from left in the top photo is fine, but not to my taste, and the third is a little too "suit-y." The far left is okay, but so seasonal and not that easy to wear.  I have no idea what one would pair the far right with, unless one's personal aesthetic was "depressing hotel lobby."

 

Unbel, I still hold that a navy blazer and gray trousers works in the summer time. I think the combination just appeals to me more strongly on a basic level  than it does to you. It's got so much range.

I don't see the advantage to a navy linen jacket with tan linen trousers over a tan linen suit, to be honest. That's a long way off, of course.
My preference is for casual suits, too. I rarely wear odd jackets, choosing instead to wear linen and cotton casual suits in summer and flannel and tweed casual suits in winter. These suits are usually unlined with patch pockets.

Was waiting for Butlers fit to show up here. That was excellent.

Butler's fit works better than the movie star's, less matchy.

 

I wonder what the consensus is on white/cream/ivory/whatever as a pairing for grey jackets? The visual seems to work but if somebody wants to tell me that white pants historically recall some obviously negative association to male nurses or milk men then by all means never mind.

 

 

 

Edit: Just found this thread, complete with A: Butler looking awesome again, and B: a picture of an ice cream man. (I was kidding about that, but, ..."OK")

I think the shade of the cream flannel has to complement the gray. Some shades of cream are more yellow and go better with blue.

18 oz cream flannels by Steven Hitchcock - not Fox, forgot which mill bigstar[1].gif
post #11142 of 13589
They look very good, cuffs are nice and meaty, unfortunately Fox doesn't carry the cream flannel in the 17oz weight, an idea for another group run biggrin.gif
post #11143 of 13589
I'm getting a pair out of the 13/14 oz version, will see how it turns out.

Is there any reason not to buy Cream Trousers in gaberdine? I think I'd rather have white for the warmer months and am not to hot on linen.

I would go flannel and linen personally, although I have neither as trousers. I have a cream linen jacket which is great for summer, but dirt becomes part of the fabric, you need to be able to accept that before purchasing
