my husband uses those colors in that way, too. I remember , when we first married, being a little surprised at some of pieces he would look at to buy, since my overall impression was that he dressed conservatively. took me a while to see how he put things together.
I agree with Jack Daniels. The quaff is very agreeable on this gent of the street. I also love the fabrics and layering. An urban naturalist might frolic in the summer, but he struts in his winter duds.
Forget about the short chap in the top pic. The real star here is the navy blazer in the bottom photo. Wow! I love the double-breasted jacket, ticket pocket, and peak lapels. The purple v-neck jumper and navy tie are wonderful. It’s a great combination. Great photo, Scott!
I can’t imagine any other way to precisely define what it means to wear a double-zipped sweater rather than a pull-over and the beautiful, landscape effect that layering creates; drawing the eye from one color and shape to the next, each new color and shape trapping and drawing the human eye into a web of exquisite and yet subtle details.
A-MAZE-ing! Thank you so much. I’m trying to gather a little group to go photo-op’ing in San Francisco this Friday, since today I had one too many love-bites from the amount of layer upon gorgeous layer of chic that slowly rolls up and down those hills.
You should come! If you can. And bring your jackets with you.
I’ve found the perfect orange and light green colored jacket…I’ll send you a picture soon but it’s short and a soft-shell jacket…not very practical but reasonable.
nah, i think one can wear orange, lavender, burgundy by themselves… you just need confidence! Take for example indian men… I often see sikh guys wearing things such as bright orange shirts, and it ALWAYS looks great.
I enjoyed the comments about orange. As a color expert I can tell you that orange, a close relative of red, sparks more controversy than any other hue. There is usually strong positive or negative association to orange and true orange generally elicits a stronger “love it” or “hate it” response than other colors.
