    Hey Guys,

    I just got my hands on this beautiful Zegna solid peach colored dress shirt. However, I am unsure as to how to appropriately wear it - what type of blazer/sportcoat?, tie? etc. Thanks for your input.

    Look to nature for color/texture combo suggestions.

    1) The cantaloupe. Observe the tan & green.

    2) The Bird Of Paradise flower. Study the colors.

    What doesn't go with it? Other than red.

    I dunno, I could see red under the right circumstances.

    It's an oxymoron to me.

    blue, grey, beige. eg try a navy tie, or subtle green blue and grey tends to be the theme... so look at those colors, like a navy tie or grey related tie [​IMG] try taking the red/maroon from the PS and see if that works [​IMG] see the beige belt, try something like that with a tie [​IMG] [​IMG] or try a dark brown tie... [​IMG] navy green repp tie [​IMG] grey related [​IMG]

    Soiled paper towels, cracked egg shells, whatever else is in your garbage can.

    One thing that doesn't go with a solid peach shirt collar is peachy skin. You never want to match the color of the skin on your face with the color of your shirt collar. O/O is in dangerous territory with the solid peach shirt collar there, and Paul Bettany doesn't look good with his here below. On a man with coffee-colored skin, this combo would be the bomb. If you're of Northern European descent, then before donning the solid peach, either (1) make sure your skin has pinks, reds, and tans; or (2) make sure the peach is very soft and pale (which will make it almost indistinguishable from pink). If your skin has a green or grayish undertone, then use solid peach shirts to your heart's content.

    Contrast collars with peach shirt bodies are of course a different animal.

    I just went through about 50 trying to find the perfect one and I think I did. Pretty tough.
