After last weeks Pattern-Frenzy, this week gentlemen, should you choose to accept, you are challenged to put together your most elegant combination of non-patterned items. Take inspiration from the casual style of Mr Marzotto in his cotton DB, through to the timeless class of proper evening dress.
Any fabrics that resolve to a solid are permitted, be it herringbone or pick n' pick, birdseye or donegal. Play with your textures, your tone and your colour.
Take heed of Beau Brummell, Only the elegant shall survive!
-TTO

Many, many, many entries this week, thank you all for participating!

The goods, since this photo is not up to scratch:

Hopsack blazer, blue OCBD, cotton knit tie, champagne-colored silk square.

Better pic of the same coat and trousers (I'm clean-shaven and have a better haircut now, I promise):
