In his defense, tweed three-piece always looks costumey.

AAS, that looks great. The bow tie certainly amps up the Professor vibe, but I suspect that you're able to pull it off IRL. A nice paisley madder standard tie would be nice with the suit.

Of course you might be more sartorially  audacious and YMMV.

One of my favourite WAYWRN's in a while. Awesome suit!

Although the oatmeal flannel isn't the most versatile fabric, I find that green, blue, and brown jackets complement it without too much trouble or need for audacity. biggrin.gif But I understand what your saying. They're conceptually easier to pair than they are actually. I think fawn turns out to be more versatile. In the case of today's combo, the shade of brown of the pants is basically one tick lighter than one of the browns in the jacket, which is probably more apparent in the first and third photos, where the colors came out more clearly. So I think the pairing is pretty natural and not one of convenience. The darkness of the jacket is exaggerated in the middle photo and I couldn't fix it. Finally, I think the light brown of the trousers looks quite nice with the dark brown suede, but perhaps that's just a personal quirk. Somewhat lighter brown is also fine of course but not superior to my eyes.

I recall reading about the run first on David's tumblr and i was pretty excited as i had been looking for 'fawn flannel' in a significant weight for ages (originating from that AA illustration of navy polo and fawn flannel and a very  old RTW Tommy offering in that shade) to no avail.

 

I love the oatmeal of course and use it regularly but to my eyes, they are not as versatile as fawn would have been.
