    The two combinations I really like the most are:
    • Navy - 4 picture (L to R)
    • Brown - pen-ultimate picture

    Is that Spoo in the 4th picture in the Navy range? Colour combination, fit, pose and wedding ring would suggest that it is. If you compare and contrast Spoo's (?) combination with the combination in the 3rd picture in the Navy post, I think Spoo's works better due to a combination of the right tone and saturation (absolutely nails the trousers and belt), and fit. I don't have the confidence, experience and eye for colour that Spoo has to be able to pull off lighter trousers with a darker SC. Hence, why I always stick to dark brown and dark grey flannel.

    I'm heading to Singapore and Malaysia early next year, and in any case, will need a Navy SC and light tan chinos for Spring / Summer.

    Even though I do not wear denim, I really like the combination of the guy wearing the brown SC with dark denim in pen-ultimate picture in the Brown post. Keeps it casual but stylish. Good effort!

    The charcoal pic with Vox. Are those grey trousers?

    I've just picked up a dark charcoal patch pocket jacket from having alterations and I'm struggling to pair it up...

    Seems to be either light grey or a kind of blue-greyish color. Can't think of much else that would go with an SC like that....

    A light olive-green trouser would work with a charcoal sportcoat, no?

    Just got this...because of the green I'm having a hard time figuring out what color/texture pants to go with this (erm....as well as tie and shirt...). Currently at the tailors undergoing some major surgery (soft shoulders, sleeves tapered). Suggestions? Pictures would be great.
