+1. I find yellow hard to pull off though (he says, as he adjusts the banana yellow polka dot square he's wearing today). White, of course, would have been great. You could also have tried a nice madder -- something with a lot of subdued reds, with some greens, rusts and yellows mixed in, ideally in wool or linen. Rust would be the complementary color to the blue, and madder would pull out the colors of the jacket. And the wool or linen would have paired nicely with the cashmere tie. Nice fit, btw.
I had a good day. Will not have time between work, teaching and travel to post details for some time. But Finamore was purchased (someone beat me to the Borrelli), as was Chester Barrie, PRL Corneliani, several items missing labels but I believe to be Loro Piana (brand, not just fabric) or better, and a whole truckload more. Construction was absolutely exquisite. One was an orphan, but far too awesome to leave. Passes included Santoni cap toe brouges with one of the caps crushed beyond repair, Gucci DB orphan (possibly TF era), several orphan/reverse orphan BB1818s, including one Saxon and two LP, and MANY overpriced items that would otherwise have proudly topped the brag list. Please do not PM until I have a chance to get back from vacation, measure and decide what's being kept and what is not. I will brag properly about it at that time.
