    I like a nice melange/marl to my shirts

    stuff like these:

    https://oliverspencer.co.uk/new-york-special-shirt-colworth-pink-oss200c

    it does however limit my blazer options, as tweedy melangey options are too much

    so i think I need a plain blazer to contrast but I'm open to suggestions

    I'm currently really liking what universal works are doing, for price versus quality they rate highly in my opinion

    but i keep returning to engineered garments - this is

    is this going to have too much fleck in it for a melange shirt do you think?

    Any other suggestions?

    I like everything you linked and I think most of it can work together. Have you thought about an EG Bedford jacket?

    Thanks, that gives me the confidence to give one of them a try, probably the engineered garment
