i think it would look fine, but i think it brings with it the idea that you're going to get alot of people that think you stole it from the joker.

I try my best to watch for weird things like that when dressing, like i personally really like the look of purple and green together, but it brings a Barney and friends connotation, and i really dont need people saying...."Huh huh huh, hi friends!" to me.

I mentioned to one poster who was taking alot of flack for a bright orange sweater that i think that many people just think he got lost on way to the hunting lodge, and that burnt orange was better.

I dont mind drawing attention with odd colors, as long as those idiosynracies dont come with it.

Reminds me of one of my first clients: We were going to court and I told him to wear a suit. He shows up in a bright purple DB suit, lavender shirt, mauve tie ( the red mohawk was the piece de la resistance). The other defence lawyers kept asking the state's attorney what he's going to do to the guy with the purple suit.

I walked up to the table and just said: " You'll give him a 120 day continuance".

After that I stuck with Federal court.
