    Navy/blue Herringbone. I have never considered this combo. Thoughts on this combo and the coat in general (appearance, utility etc.)

    I like that blazer a lot. The combo looks good but I would probably pick a different tie.

    It is begging for burgundy.

    Any thoughts on Herringbone/Navy (or maybe this is more blue?)

    I don't own it and am considering buying

    Now we're talking. That said. I need to pick up a burgundy tie. I don't think I own one.

    Travesty.
    I would wear the sh!t out of that blazer.

    I've always been fundamentally opposed to Gingham in fall/winter, putting it almost on par with linen, seersucker, and madras.

    Am I being unfairly prejudiced?

    I think it's super 'in' right now. A lot of places are selling the shirts as part of their catalog for the fall.

    Personally, I definitely see seersucks as a summer thing. Linen too. Madras and gingham, not so much. It depends on the colors, textures, and density of the fabric though.

    Maybe a dumb question but I'm going to ask anyways. Wondering if I could get your guys opinion on the versatility this coat:

    I'd like to wear it to work, where I'm mostly wearing dark grey or brown pants with various coloured dress shirts (blues, lavenders, some green). While it's certainly not as versatile as navy, do you think this shade of blue would still be fairly versatile?

    Conversely, I could get this:

    Maybe the grey would be easier to pair with more colours?

    Can one be fairly prejudiced? :D

    I think it looks dorky on the model but the jacket itself is great, very versatile in the warmer months.

    I'll fool around with some and see how it looks.

    I'm prejudiced against gray or jewel tone shirts because I think I look like hell in them.

    Yes. The word's meaning goes far beyond just bigotry, even though it's most commonly used in that context. I, for example, am prejudiced against men who wear jorts. I think that that is perfectly fair.

    But my calves are so shapely and well defined.

    What about dark brown or dark green?

    Blue is still easiest but dark colours are pairable fairly easily. You will have fewer options with green, I'd say. If you are after versatility, go with navy.
