    Picked up a Tan Camel Hair Sports Coat over the winter and now is the time I can finally wear it.

    What would you think goes with it? Today I wore it with dark brown pants and a white shirt with some brown/red in it.

    I'm guessing I could also pair it with navy/grey pants? I'm really unclear what color shirts would be appropriate with a tan camel hair and navy/grey pants combination?

    Any thoughts?

    What is the season for camel hair? When should I take it out and when should I put it away?

    just IMO..

    camel hair = beige which is an earth tone; grey is, IMO, a metallic. The two don't go well together. Beige + navy or other earth tones is better.

    Tan and dark gray look great together, in my book. Blue shirts, either solids or patterns, work well. It's a pretty versatile sportcoat.

    I wear my camel hair in fall and winter and the cooler days of early spring.

    So you'd wear Navy pants w/ Beige Camel Hair Sportscoat and a blue shirt? I personally think the Beige Camel Hair Sportscoat goes best with Black, Navy, Dark Brown pants ... couple with light blue, whites ... and is that it? I guess most of my shirts are white and blue anyway [​IMG]

    ^ what he said. I find that camel hair is rather warm and I just stored mine until fall rolls around.
