Hello dear sf members,
This is a topic perhaps covered here before and one that clearly comes up after searching on google. However, I found little depth on sf and too basic colour wheels on various blogs etc.
I am looking for something more definitive.
To point out any errors which I have made in colour matching to this point I have attempted to include a succint - but clearly too lengthy - monologue on my current sense of dress.
I always wear a club collared long sleeve shirt with a breast pocket every single day, irrespective of formality. To look casual I include chinos and a jumper / blazer / leather jacket (club is rounded collar - see attached image).
I know it is difficult but I would like to know if I am doing this correctly. I always pick a darker tie for shirts I consider "light" in a matching colour. For instance;
and a "dark" shirt with a "lighter" tie; for instance, a black shirt and a deep velvet red.
Obviously white can take anything.
I pair "lighter" shirts - I deem burgundy, blues other than royal and navy, white to be "light") with light stonewash levis. If the shirt is blue I pick a red or burgundy style chino.
For dark shirts I wear black or brown chinos and boots of such a deep brown they appear black.
Alfred Sargent Dumfries finish off my look for light shirt days.
The jumper is red and jacket or blazer black.
How does that appear?
