    UPDATE: GO TO THE NEW TUMBLR PAGE HERE: http://jrd617sguides.tumblr.com/

    In this thread, I'm taking up the mantle from our dear, departed Vox / F. Corbera.

    Over the years, I have saved lots of inspirational fits from the WAYWN threads. This exercise helped me to understand what jacket/pants combinations work. I hope this resource can help newer members. Not meant to be comprehensive in any way. And not every picture is perfect.

    This will be an 11 part series.

    Part I: Air Force Blue / Royal Blue:

    You have to be consistent with the weights/textures, but I've found that this color works best with gray, tan, navy or denim, and light gray/white.

    Part II: Olive / Army Green

    Grey, tan/beige, different shade of olive / army green

    Again, be consistent with the weights/textures. Generally works best with gray, tan, or charcoal/navy

    I'm definitely interested in what you have for gray.

    Part IV: Charcoal

    Grey

    Not very versatile. Best combo I've seen
