    I like to wear purple, both bright and deep. I also wear orange occasionally. By and large, I'm black/white though.

    I sometimes like really loud colors.

    well, im pretty sure you all know, but here are some of the nagrani socks i bought from chorse the other week.

    im planning to wear these socks with outfits that dont have much going on.

    if my outfit has too much going on already , it will not be wise to wear these

    I used to be enthralled with dark colours but this past year has seen me slowly introduce some lighter colours into the mix. No colour is out of the question nowadays.

    Matt, both of those jackets are very nice (and well cut) but that first one with the pink windowpane is HOT!!!!


    This is the most colorful jacket I currently own and I do get a lot of compliments when I wear it (although it might be my incredible Adonis-like good looks more than the jacket). I wear loud colors and patterns, just not together

    My fiance will not let me buy blue when I get dress shirts so I am forced to buy color. For dress shirts I picked up a lot of white with mauve, green, pink, orange patterns and have been happy. I still sneak in a few blue purchases but surprisingly her staunch objection to blue dress shirts has resulted in some nice purchases.

    I am trying to introduce color into my casual cloths were I would normally stick to earth tones and blues. My tailor has some pretty loud camp color linen shirts from Borrelli and some cotton sweaters that I have my eye on. I am easing into the bright spring colors with socks. Free was a price I could not refuse on this pair. It's going to take him a lot of convincing to get me into the pink pair he has however.

    iammatt . . . the colors in that second model, are sophisticated. Mocha, periwinkle, tarragon. Compelling palette. I'd love it, blended into a melange.

    I only wear color if it's red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, or violet.

    Oh, and pink. [​IMG]

    I wear very bold colored shirts with odd jackets and blazers, and even with suits I don't ever wear a plain white, light blue or pink shirt...always some color and pattern. I do have orange and cranberry colored pants I will wear sometimes, but everything else is boring grey, navy, and charcoal.

    Matt, I love that orange jacket.

    To answer the OP's question, I wear tons of color. My boss has called me Miami-Vice on account of it. I have a bright baby blue and white square-dot borrelli sweater that I absolutely love. I wear it with white linen pants and bright blue socks in matching blue. My favorite pair of socks are burnt-orange and tan. They look kinda pink from far away and my boss always pokes fun at them. I don't care. :p

    I also have bright blue and yellow cashmere/silk sweaters. Pink and lavender shirts, etc. Gonna do a mint green windowpane silk/cashmere jacket sometime soon, which will be perfect for spring. I could go on but you get the point. Color is great.
