I'm going to look for a BB one at some point. They're not 'cheap' on ebay since they're in vogue around this time of year!

BB makes a lot of nice Madras stuff.

Khaki would be good too, but the gray is fine.

Thanks to @tchoy

I proxied the same fabric for @Kent Wang. I suspect from the same source ^_^

Springtime (I miss the winter)

Merick, that really is a tremendous suit and it looks great on you. I think though that the shirt you are wearing with it is too similar in scale. Otherwise outstanding.

Six, I think that khaki would be nice and definitely change the vibe of that look, but as it is the grey certainly plays just fine with the other colors. I like.

Everyone busting out the madras. I plan to do so on Mother's Day… we'll see how it goes. happy.gif

^ I agree re Merick's fit. Also, on my screen at least, the tie and square look pretty similar in color, but I withhold judgment on that.

 

The chances that I would wear khaki trousers with this sport coat are pretty small. Light beige or cream, yes. Maybe we're all thinking of the same color, but my mental image of khaki makes it hard for me to imagine the two looking that great together.

 

Time for a Vox pic!

 

 

That works, of course, but it's not what I think of being khaki.

Beautiful vintage SC! What would you wear it with beside white pants? Would gray of any tone work? What about Browns?

I have always feared white pants but there are so many great fits for this challenge it's making me want some. Still, imho, it seems like almost any pants challenge should go to @Betelgeuse That crease!

Thank you. I was considering wearing khaki linen trousers with it, which I think would have worked fine. I'd probably stay away from brown with this particular color, although there are certainly some Madras patterns that would go fine with it. A light gray fresco might work too. Whatever the case, I think the trousers need to be a rather common color. Burgundy linen, yellow, orange, etc. would be too much with this jacket.

 

Agreed on Betel's pants, btw. He consistently brings it.
