The Panta is a bit brighter than the green knit, so perhaps something I would reach for more often in the summer.
Do you have pics of the brown jacket with the green ties?
A number of other pictures (I uploaded what I had on my phone. I went back and pulled a few stored on SF, including a number of green ties (and additional S/S jackets not included)
The green linen neat from Brooks Brothers
The green knit with that brown jacket, which I hesitate to really call an S/S jacket given the color.
Another of the raw silk Conrad Wu, a tie I also hesitate to really consider S/S despite the fabric due to the color
I eliminated this olive knit as a S/S tie after taking a picture. I think this is a pretty good example of where fabric is trumped by color in terms of seasonality (both for the jacket and tie)
Another green tie, not one of my ten (only because this Henry Carter doesn't knot as well as the solid Kent Wang of the same color) and a linen jacket
Drakes shantung, wool linen jacket (well, blazersuit)
The green linen again with the brown jacket, as requested.
Silk linen from Henry carter
Henry Carter neat, wool-linen blazersuit
