Hell yes, same here. It hailed on me TWICE yesterday.

"I love yeller trousers. Seriously. I think it was @SpooPoker who posted a fit with a navy blazer and yellow trousers a while back that I have been trying (and failing) to emulate ever since."

Yeah, that was c. 2010, with the old Spoo pose where he was sitting down. Inspired by that pic, I in fact purchased a pair of yellow Borrelli cotton trou fom Spoo himself. Haven't really worn them, though, as the navy jacket / colorful pents has become so common here.

Great look. Love the fit of the jacket. What color are the socks? Look kind of out of place with all the neutrals.

I'm commissioning a pair of 'mustard' cords for winter. I'd like to get a mustard linen too.

From a design standpoint this is a superior deployment of complementary colours, in this case orange and its opposite across the colour wheel blue. Here's why:

  • Colours used sparingly, combined with neutrals.
  • Warm colour against cool.
  • The colours with the most visual weight due to luminosity and saturation -- here the burnt orange and the medium blue -- are used in the smallest elements (necktie and socks).
  • Strong element (tie) juxtaposed with pale, desaturated complement (shirt).
  • Jacket incorporates hints of warm colour from tie; necktie incorporates neutrals from jacket.
  • Neutrals that are similar in hue made visually distinct by pairing a texture/pattern against a solid (jacket / pants).


At this point it might sound like I have a man-crush on this guy, but I actually kind of resent him and his perfect goddamn hair.

I must say that it's by far the best review I have ever got for an outfit. Some outfits has resulted in 50 or so thumbs but this is a great compliment with a lot of thought behind it. Thank you!

Thank you. The jacket is a favourite of mine. 

 

The socks are royalblue/lightblue herringbone which probably looks fairly solid from a few meters away. I wanted to have a darker shoe and thus went for slighty dark socks. The light blue part of the socks are similar to the shirt. A lighter shoe/soc combo might have looked better but I wanted to ground the outfit with a dark shoe.

Feedback - as always - is welcome.

Burn the tie and just swap in a light grey grenadine tie.

@blekit this is harsh but, I think, good advice.  The suit looks like it fits you well, and the shirt and the wholecuts are nice in combination with it.  A bold windowpane suit like that almost always needs to be the loudest element in an ensemble, and a solid grenadine or subdued neat tie would complement the rest of your items perfectly.

Agree on the burning (sorry, Blekit); light grey grenadine certainly would work, but would also result in a decidedly festive look. I don't know if that's what he is going for here.

In fact you could swap the tie for almost any not-too-informal tie. Stripes in general might be too informal, but almost any neat print would work wonderfully, navy suit and white shirt is quite the blank canvas.
