confused.gif I was hoping people would imagine green pants on Mr. Matthews. It looks dark enough.

I would probably want a little bit darker than that. But it would be another one like the fresco where each piece could work as separates. Something like this:

@gdl203
What pants are you wearing to match with that jacket?
post #10641 of 11488

I don't remember to be honest but I think they were brown or beige cotton chinos.  Would look good with light grey pants as well

FYI there was a length of green Solaro by Carlo Barbera at il vecchio drappiere.

I think that would look spectacular actually

I love green. Some nice examples from bntailor below. Both are linen, but I think a textured wool would work as well.

I have a summer suit from the dark green (olive/black) finnemeresco from Paul Winston.

I feel like too many people already have 516 and 520 for there to be much interest in a lighter color.

Not sure nailhead would work on Fresco's weave, but that could be an idea.
A lighter weight 520 has value.

Also, if there were more 15oz Frecoes, in somewhat lighter greys, they would be useful. I would go for a charcoal good for business suits, as well as a mid grey that could be worn under a blazer.

This jacket of mine is from that book :


 

 

This one looks great! Do you know the weight of the fabric?

Photo of Mark popped up today. Hard to tell if I'm right, but the jacket here looks greenish on my screen. I'm really liking the dark green Fresco idea.
