Navy on Light Brown
Today was probably the last wear for the jacket of my double breasted cotton suit, and this time on its own with navy Brooks Brothers chinos. The jacket is going to go under the scalpel now that it's season is about to end. I'm planning on tightening the sleeves and letting out the chest a bit (at least), however I suppose this sort of cotton will never settle quite as beautifully as wool would.
The light blue spread collar shirt lets the tie be the center piece of the show. The tie itself is an E. Marinella, my favorite brand when it comes to formal silk ties. I have six, and I love them all. They simple tie the most beautiful knots and the linings are from another world in how they feel. This particular one is my first one, bought a few years ago. The pocket square is navy with a colorful paisley pattern, and I really like how all the components work here with the greyish light brown of the jacket.
I will try posting a few more looks still this week, but my girlfriend is now back studying in another city and therefore I'm without my "cameraman", so we'll see.
