Crazy idea for a DB odd jacket
If your question is "can I do something crazy," then the answer is "not yet."
I think elbow patches as a fashion touch peaked a year ago, and they'd be tacky in alligator. If you're going tacky, GET LOUD. Why not have more fun with it? Navy blazer, 4x4, patch pockets, with frog-mouth lapels, sleeve cuffs, and roped shoulders! Get a bunch of brass emblematic buttons from the same company, but not matching ones -- so one button's a sailboat, one's a golf ball, one's a fox, and so on! Make it a safari jacket -- navy DB cotton with belted back and bellows pockets!
Or do none of those things. I'm 20 at the moment, and if I had a clothing budget to speak of but was set on conservative gear, I'd get a little crazy too.
Yep, I've seen that, that's where my inspiration is coming from
The jacket is not going to be bright blue, it's gonna be navy. This Sunday I'm going to take a look at some exotic leathers, i might consider some blue snake skin.
But I'm not quite sure about the buttons, dark MOP? plain black? Brass?
