    santa cruz man, when in rome ...


    gdl, I do have a bottle green square but two reasons why I don't it would work that well with that combo:

    1) I don't mind the silk tie + silk square combo for most of the year but in summer I really think a silk tie requires a dry texture to set it off, hence I will always wear a linen square. I actually wear a lot of linen and linen blend ties in summer, more than I wear those business silks, and with those I prefer silk squares.

    2) The color of the suit looks tan in the photo but it's really more of a pale, dull olive. Not a vivid green by any means, but definitely a tan with a greenish cast. I think a green square would have looked too camouflage-y.

    I thought I had added sufficient texture with the flannels I wore... I can most certainly combine with brown and/or green cords and moleskins. I'm no great fan of knit ties, although I do have a navy one. But I do have several cashmere ties which ought to combine just fine. The thing is, as Gdl notes below, that would all underline the fall feel, whereas I am trying to see whether I can get some "summer" use out of this coat.

    Ok. So let me run the jacket by you with navy cotton trousers. Still wearing a tie, so not as casual as the image you paint, but hopefully more summer-y.

    I'm not sure the pink shirt works with the jacket. I'm also not sure this can be a summer jacket.

    The tie is actually a J. Press grenadine, although the texture does not show up very well.

    EDIT -

    Another pic. The suit is a dark navy, not black, and it has subtle stripes on it. Iphone camera contrast blows.

    Needs a darker tie and different pants. Try mid grey pants, and a light blue solid shirt. Make suede shoes, dark brown or navy twill tie.
