    I actually quite like this combination. Perhaps a contrasting buttonhole flower for a wedding if you would like to bring in a different colour?
    Thanks. Good idea.

    VERY stylin'! About the only thing I'd change is the dark socks with the yellow trousers. They want something brighter, or at least lighter. But I hope to borrow a lot from these looks.
    Yellow trousers...so dated. I saw Ralph Lauren, yes, the Ralph Lauren, with wife number one*, at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance about ten years ago. One of his cars, probably a Bugatti, was in contention for Best in Show. Anyway, he was sporting a double-breasted blue blazer, button one, with a pair of canary yellow slacks, along with Belgian loafers. *wife number one is still his wife. http://www.pebblebeachconcours.net/

    I have a 5PM wedding next weekend at a hotel with reception to follow and I have the usual suit suspects, i.e. navy, charcoal, tan but wanted to wear a navy blazer. Is this appropriate? If so, what color pants do you suggest? I have a light grey wool pant but a navy blazer with grey slacks seems old and tired to me.

    According to comrade, yellow pants are dated, so dont do those by any means.

    Too cold to get into spring/summer just yet so here are a few from last year. (just about all of my spring/summer pants are going to the tailor this week for a "lift". Time to raise the hem and little or no break.)

    I'll play also. Since I'm anticipating two new suits for the S/S, this allows for a flashback or several. Beware; some of these may contain humour, casual ensembles and clothes I've long since firebombed: [2009] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Barims,

    Your style is among the most unique and original on SF, and it's been pretty enduring considering how long you've been posting . Way to stay above the groupthink.

    Me too...spring/summer gives me a chance to infuse a little color into the wardrobe. My favorite colors being navy, cream, white, light grey, green and lavender.

    After the longest, coolest, non-spring on record around here it is finally 88 degrees today. At last I can put my tweeds away and start dressing in Spring/Summer.
