I find that "French Blue" is hard to pair with both shoes and socks.
What are your thoughts on burgundy/oxblood with charcoal suits?
I think burgundy-#8-oxblood all look great with nearly anything tbh, especially charcoal and navy.
I think that's why the OneShoe is so versatile.
Color wise, likely. Style wise, seems a bit too country.
When I think about it though, I still think black is better than burgundy with charcoal.
what I really don't like is the burgundy tones pair with creams and tans. Brown looks better IMO.
e.g. I think this is bad
but this is good
(aside from the fact that I dislike those sloop things). (credit asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com)
I'm sure the first one is a classic combination or whatever, I just find it jarring.
A large gingham is way too busy to wear with a patterned tweed. It's also too spring/summery to wear with a heavy, textured cloth. Wear it with a dark blue or tan suit or with a blue blazer.
Thanks. If I can wear it with a navy blazer or suit, then I am ok with it
I wouldn't wear with a navy suit. I think it's either a tan suit as Canta suggested, or on its own with jeans, maybe under a cardigan or something. If not for the strong summer associations of gingham, I'd suggest wearing it under a donegal jacket, but tattersall would be the more natural partner.
i will most definitely not be burning it. i may sell it, i could even donate it, but destroying clothing is not a good thing to do imo. i do though have one more combination i would like to try it with. we shall see.
Here's Beppe wearing something similar, albeit on a smaller scale, with a tan suit.
That part is good. The problem is he's still wearing his goddamn red socks, even with that.
what is the issue with that?
Thanks for the thoughtful response.
First pic looks better than the second, so I'll judge that one. It's a solid effort, Z. No problems to me. But the tie in the second shot looks awfully close to the jacket.
