    More and more, I find myself shirking the Christmas tree effect and returning to shades of gray and blue, playing with shade, texture and pattern saturation...

    I agree but I think that outfit would benefit from one more color, probably in the tie. Overall still good though.

    also, is the suit blue or gray? looks blue to me.

    The shirt is white poplin. The suit is a French Navy twill. The tie is a jacquard silk with white pindots on a navy ground (very saturated).

    I think he means the ensemble would look better with a pink shirt.

    Unfortunately, I cannot bring myself to wear pink. :)
