Over on Andy's we had a pattern matching chat recently and I mentioned that I like playing with textures as well as patterns sometimes by using different materials... I'm sure most have seen the 'Country Gentleman" look in various fashion layouts this fall... we were bored making ads so played around a bit while shooting ebay stuff the other night. Here's an example of mixing textures and materials as wellas patterns, Jill raided my closet to dress Woody for an ad for the sportcoat in this pic. We have... Wool/Cotton blend shirt, Cashmere/Silk blend tie, Linen vest, Cashmere sportcoat, silk pocketsquare. Added benefit... if you listen closely you can here Ernest shriek in pain at the agrarian pallette selected... we're one pair of alligator loafers from driving him nuts on this one. Whatchya tink? "Decide what manner of man you wish to be taken for, then dress the part."
