I love cord suits, but I am wondering about what the best colors are for them? I realize that the standard might be brown and tan, but I find these colors a bit too similar to skin and too easily professorial. I've got a navy one now, which I wear frequently, but I was thinking of having another one made up. What color would you recommend for this one?
