    Pant, shirt, tie, square color? Solids - patterns.

    I love the jacket but I'm having a hard time figuring out what to wear with it. I'm a complete noob when it comes to this kind of stuff. Help a brother out.

    maybe some navy flannel trou or navy chinos. Chocolate suede shoes and a non-busy shirt of your choosing.

    Charcoal pants, brown oxford shoes, white shirt, navy tie, some kind of complimentary square.

    Doesn't Manton hate oxfords with odd jackets? Curious to know if this is a personal preference on his part, or a wider Style Forum worldview?

    I can see myself wearing more of a casual shoe ( Loafer, Chukka ) then say an oxford but I'm not ruling that option out.

    Another question, what this kind of Jacket I should stick to solids for a shirt right?

    I think grey flannels in any shade would be great. Dark green moleskins maybe too. For shirts, a solid blue OCBD would probably be ideal, but you might be able to make a university stripe or checkered tattersall work. Brown shoes in almost any shade would fit, and a brown oxford with lots of broguing would work, but I'd prob. go for a blucher, loafer, or chukka, as you mention. Your friend dopey would give you great feedback irl.
