    Ok, so rust (and it's close relative, "vicuna") is not the most versatile color for an SC, but it's a cool color to look at.

    Thinking about picking up a new Canali in rust with patch pockets.

    Grey and khaki trousers are the only combinations I can think of. (Possibly denim?)

    Any other good fit pics?

    I've never heard "vicuña" used to describe a color before. thought it was just the fabric or animal.

    here's a rust DoW number:

    rust always reminds me of the 70s. I just can't do it myself. looks kinda gross on my fair skin :)

    Heh, I blame Spoo for the Vicuna term: http://www.styleforum.net/t/295405/...-vicuna-color-parlamento-sc-40r-4995-tag/0_30

    Yes, it can kind of have a tacky 70s vibe.

    But I think this picture shows that with the right shade and the right fit, it can work:

    I was in love with a rust colored Kiton sportcoat, but the $1,600 discounted (from $4,500) price tag kept me away.

    I would wear any of those. It's a color that goes pretty well with my skin tone/hair color.

    I have been obsessed with the idea of geting a rust jacket since seeing this fit from ctp120, I hope he doesn't mind me reposting here.

    I've been looking for a slighlty more orange cloth with a blue overcheck.
    I searched a few swatch books but haven't found anything yet, although I did find a couple of darker orange donegals which looked amazing.

    I recently threw all complexion contrast concerns to the wind and am getting myself a rust coloured suit in a shade around the DoW's suit and the last jacket in the opening post. Wish me luck
