    Hello,

    I intend to wear the Harrington with chinos, selvedge and perhaps flannel pants. Those pants are mainly grey, black and navy/dark blue. Fred Perry is what's available where I live. When I visit the UK again I'll get a Baracuta. So, to the point, would you suggest navy, black or stone (pale tan)?

    Thanks!

    Depends what colour the jacket is.

    If your comlplexion can handle it, I would go with either stone or British tan.

    That is precisely my question :)

    I'm too light skinned for a latino (which I am) and not white enough to classify as caucasian, I guess that's what being Basque descendant on both sides of the family is about. I'm leaning more for the stone, in due time I'll get one in navy and perhaps another in burgundy. Thanks for taking your time.

    Black - boring
    Navy - versatile but unimaginative
    Stone - you'll look more like an old man on a bus trip than Steve McQueen

    Why not go for something a bit more adventurous like bottle green or sky blue?

    This one is "petrol blue" from Stuart's of London and I think the color is spot on. Versatile and nice and bright.
