That is a classic southern look, although I don't know if GW was going for that or even cares. Some of our members have received quite a thrashing for the look as a matter of fact. I think GW does it quite well.

Threw this together in a rush. Not 100% on all of the shades but I'm kind of into it.

I think the biggest problem with that for me is that I view the colors on top to be incongruous with the colors on bottom. The dark blue of the shirt and the brown/rust of the tie are very Fall, and the trousers are Summer all the way. I'm just not a big fan of the denim shirt with jacket/tie look either. Some will be more forgiving of this, but it's never a look I have liked.

I think fabrics are far more seasonal than colors. There are brown linen jackets and rust linen jackets etc ... I'd never think of those as fall articles.

I dislike the shirt. I think the outfit could work if the shirt was a much better option.

The tie is a light brown knit so not sure if that helps haha, but I agree with the shirt. A washed out lighter shade would have been much better (if available).

Why would a tall Scandinavian guy have such a Japanese sounding name?

Personal preference, but what about lighter colored trousers, especially in summer (are those charcoal?)? You've got lots of fall/winter tones.

 

Oddly enough, I'm wearing the same jacket today (and a navy shantung with blue striped shirt!). I'd call the jacket a dark taupe. Tan trousers and tan shoes in my fit but I might try white next week.

Ultimately the outfit I went with.
