@TweedyProf I agree re. lots of colors being taupe if it's considered brown-gray, which is what I'd consider it. And on second look at Claghorn's jacket, it is darker or more saturated than the ones I was thinking are great for summer. I would consider the Formosa jacket I posted to be taupe. It looks a lot like the one you just posted. What fabric is that, if you don't mind my asking? @Mr. Six and @FlyingMonkey , now that you say it, that picture has a bit of a blue cast to it. I've corrected that a somewhat here: But the contrast to navy may be more clear in this pic of the jacket in question next to a navy jacket (L to R: 0520 fresco, navy finmeresco, dark brown fresco, taupe hopsack). Although this pic, taken at twilight, isn't ideal either. I wore the brown jacket to one of the Styleforum 10th Anniversary events, and here's a pic (w/ blue jeans), that might be helpful. I really like this original color but also see the appeal of the lighter Slewfoot and DWW versions.
