    I just bought this 2 Flowers sport shirt from Lance, and love it. I'm trying to figure out what to wear with it. I have it on today at the office, and paired it with safe, but incredibly boring khaki-colored chinos and lightweight rust laceups from Moreschi.


    I'm thinking for nice summer things it would look good with linen/cotton cream trousers from RLPL and perhaps either tan bucks or loafers in whiskey cordovan.

    Any other ideas? Particularly for casual office wear? I am in a business where I can wear anything from a shirt like this untucked to a double breasted suit with links and a pocket square and no one blinks either way.

    Edit: Can't make esnips photo host work. The shirt I am talking about is the 2 Flowers ss shirt in pale blue on Lance's Web site under the sport shirts. It's on page 2, bottom row, second from the left.

    Can you give Lance's web address?

    I was going to say, linen pants would be a clear choice, you may be able to get away with navy trousers in twill, linen, or tropical weight wool, if you wanted to get away from light colored pants, and you could wear anything from brown brogues to something much more casual.

    In addition to linen, you could do silk pants or light weight wool pants. I would do quiet colors contrasting with the shirts.
