Both. Both is good.

 

I happen to like corozo buttons, and it might disturb my sense of zen to have leather buttons and suede trim (then again, maybe it wouldn't). Why not horn? Hard to go wrong with horn buttons.

I ordered a pair of el cheapo moleskins in a blue that I hope is similar to that one. I was leaning towards wearing them with gray herringbone. I'll have to throw them up against my brown coats when they get here.

hank is cream

 

would've done a fine striped shirt with this if I had a clean one, as it is now the tie stands out a bit as the only patterned element.

Something tweedish?

 

I imagine this tie would look awesome on a gun club, blueish or greenish tweed.

Can a plaid jacket be in good taste?

I feel like you have a really "warm" coat and square wrapped around a really "cool" shirt/tie. I think if you're going to repeat an orange in here, it would have to be in the tie. Same rig with off-white silk square paisley would have been more to my taste. I think you could do a shirt with a really thin stripe (effectively a semi-solid) very well with this coat and tie.

 

Love the shoes (AE Neumok? I think you've mentioned those before), but I don't like the green laces against such a warm brown. Suede shoes with lighter laces are the bomb, though.

 

I'm living in little bit of a glass house: yesterday I wore penny loafers, jeans, tattersall shirt, and navy hopsack blazer, with silk paisley square, so maybe take this with a grain of salt.

Yup, AE neumok. I have t wore them in a while though. I specifically chose the shirt and tie as cooling elements. I think it works, but YMMV. I just don't like too many warm elements in one outfit, but maybe the tie was too much.

The Neumoks look way better on the hoof than they do on a store shelf (it helps that snuff suede is a tasteful shoe color, as opposed to the highly-questionable distressed leather they also come in).

 

Well, I'm not actually sure repeating an orange would be my favorite option. Cooling down this jacket is a good idea. I actually think the best thing to do would be to remove one warm element -- the square, and replace it with a neutral (white linen or cream silk*). That would tie the cool in the "v" of jacket front into the warm of the body.

 

The tie is black, right? It's a rule (kind of) in black and white photography that if you have a true jet black in your image, you should also have a totally pure white. I think that's an interesting idea to apply to tailored clothing -- after all, wouldn't Manton suggest that a white shirt sets a level of formality matched by black shoes? I think I'm too trad for that approach, but I do think a black knit (just bought one myself) demands either a white shirt, a shirt with white in the pattern, or a white square.

 

*Yes, cream is a warm white. I still think it would work.

Looking at the photo I see it looks black. It's actually navy blue. Good info though.
