    You could also go English country gent with cords or moleskins, a tattersall check shirt and a woollen tie (or one with wildlife on it).

    I should have more than enough stuff for this coat, have the following pants:
    Light Grey Flannel & Wool
    Medium Grey Flannel & Wool
    Charcoal Wool
    Chocolate Brown Flannel
    Light Brown Flannel & Wool
    Navy Gaberdine

    I also have tons of solid white, blue, pink and blue Bengal/check/gingham shirts in my closet but every time I try to put something together, it looks like :censored:!!

    I think brown or navy grenadine would look great as well. (well, navy looks good with everything)

    Love the green grenadine! - looks just like mine from Kent Wang. When I bought it I didn't realize how versatile it would be and how much I would end up wearing it. It's nearly as versatile as a navy tie, and it's much more unexpected, which adds a little flair to the outfit.

    What type of tweed is this? I am going to wear this now that the weather is getting cooler, at least at night.
