    And I'm not just talking about myself. [​IMG]

    If I had my druthers, I'd fill my wardrobe entirely with items in all shades across the spectrum of blues and browns plus the obligatory flannel trousers in shades of gray.

    Im with you all the way on this.

    Except for Lino's electric blue overcoat.

    Still covet that United Arrows guy's gigantor croc clutch.

    Yes. All of my favorite suits/SCs are some form of brown. I look at my closet, and I wonder how I got so much gray...

    It's gonna be hard to get anything similar to those pictures by just asking for something brown. Seems like brown is a contested color for clothing.

    well there's brown as a suit or sportscoat.... here are some examples of different shades and patterns: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Then there's the use of brown for other purposes, which to me makes it even more interesting... I'll skip shoes since that's obvious, and so are ties, but vests/cardigans or a jacket are an interesting touch. (PS - OMFG yfyf's overcoat is just so amazing I can't stop looking at it. IIRC it's Brioni) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
