Dressing in a kind of @Cleav inspiration way on this monday off

Sitting on a bench made from bronze cricket bats and wearing a herringbone jacket with a University stripe OCBD shirt, stripes on stripes, a rolled button hole, black shoes, a yellow shirt, matching socks and tie, cuffs on corduroy, and a button-down shirt (as well as several other things) which, since the invention of the internet, some people imagine are the same as Leg Before Wicket.
The difference is Leg Before Wicket is a written rule and the other things aren't. The similarity is there's a lot of discussion about them.
Brooks Brothers herringbone tweed jacket, yellow and white University stripe OCBD shirt, BB#1 stripe tie and socks, home made William Morris Daisy pocket square, L L Bean cord trousers, and Allen-Edmonds for Brooks Brothers shoes.
(Trigger warning for those who imagine these are real rules-close up picture below.)
The William Morris Daisy pocket square was cut out of a piece of fabric I ordered from the UK over twenty years ago and never used, so I cut out a piece and stuck it in my pocket because I needed a yellow pocket square.
Members of this group who go out of their houses have probably noticed, unlike online, they never get any bizarre comments about what they are wearing when they are outside.
The cricket bat bench is in a local Academia Nut Grove and this plaque is next to it. Perhaps a more enlightened member can figure out how the cricket bat bench relates to aboriginal art.
W.W. Chan isn't one of the shops set up in the HK Peninsula, is it?
Stanley, that is a handsome tie, if only for the combination of colours alone. Is the background brown or olive?
Either way, this is a potent reminder of the versatility of green (including olive) and brown in solids and various combinations.
More and more, at least when I do not choose a tie with blue as the main colour, I find myself choosing ties that exclusively contain brown or green as the predominant colour.
Is it SF groupthink, or are there inherent qualities in these colours that are at work here?
