I feel like I keep mentioning this whole cool/warm color temperature to you. Here we go again. I'll just shut up about it after this.

The pants are shirt are warm colors and the jacket is a cool color. I don't think they mesh well. The shirt also appears to be quite saturated. It looks nice with the warm pants, but clashes to me with the jacket. I don't think these two browns go well together. Again, one is a cool (grayish) brown while the other is a warm (orange) brown. Beautiful individual items as always.

It may seem like I'm not listening... This might have something to do with the lighting, but imo this jacket is fairly neutral irl, maybe even warm-leaning. It has rust, cream and brown flecks over a grey-brown base.

For my part, I think afterthesuit looks good. I would rank his outfit higher than most, including most outfits you’ve shared here. I’ve been tired of white/beige/khaki pants so maybe that’s why I especially appreciate his outfit.

That is also quite ’scientific’ approach to dressing. If you dress by numbers you’ll look like it too. I’m aware of the ancient rules, also aware how and that they should be broken and I’m quite aware that @An Acute Style knows this all.

In the end, isn’t all that matters does the lady walking towards you find you A) attractive B) not attractive? Isn’t that shat actually counts, even after all this mascular approvement seeking forum-stuff...?

IS IT NOT THIS WHAT ACTuALLY COUNTS? Married guys knows this too: no matter how much you explain the finer things of that stupid watch to her, she’ll just nod ’cause she understands that the watch must mean lot to you, but that watch won’t make her drool after you, now does it...?

I think @afterthesuit looks good in that, funny, exciting and mature way. Not too neurotic in that fit. That outfit, among many good outfits presented here, triggers also my imagination ”hell, this guy knows something”. Hell, that outfit might even work on a date.

I’m also aware the comment from AAS wasn’t too importantand he’ll probably not contemplate these things while sleeping etc.

There is no arguing. You’re a well dressed guy. The cut and fit of your items is outstanding. You’ve often asked for advice about combos you were unsure of. I often find color temperature a common denominator. I see the flecks in the jacket, but it still comes off as a gray brown vs the orange brown of the pants.

If our goal is to figure out if women like our outfits, the constituents of this thread is all wrong.

From the little I’ve experienced as an adult, I continue to see beautiful women with IMO poorly dressed men. Apparently no love lost. I’m assuming women don’t care nearly as much about our appearance as they care about theirs.

This is awesome. Love all the shades of brown.
Thank you! The suede boots are more similar in tone to the cord chore coat than it appears in the photo. However, I enjoy outdoor shoots since there is a certain beauty of capturing the moment and how colors shift with the reflection of light.

Thank you for the kind words! I appreciate that you've paid enough attention to notice colour temp being a reoccurring theme. I guess my decisions aren't based on categorical evaluations of the individual pieces. I'm comfortable enough with putting together outfits that may contain a hint of clash, or discordant colour schemes, that I don't specifically seek out avoiding them.

When I put this one together my way of thinking (potentially incomplete as it may be) was that both the trousers and shirt are fairly saturated colours, where the donegal jacket is less saturated. It pairs well with the dark denim shirt, and pairs well with the warm brown flannel. I felt that the flecks were an adequate bit of continuity between the jacket and trousers. Thus, the outfit is 2/3 warm, and 1/3 cool - generally a well balanced ratio.

Overall, I'm happy with it. I think it's just slightly unconventional, without being contrarian. I don't dismiss your argument out of hand, as I can see the points you are making. I just don't fully agree with your assessment. It's possible we just assign different weighting to colour temp when eyeing an outfit. You're one of the few who takes time to provide thoughtful critiques to all kinds of members on this site, and I do appreciate it.
