There are several ways to introduce interesting elements to an attire; although our first impressions are undoubtedly visual, and color plays a huge role in this area, the whole universe that comprises an attire is much more intricate. When it comes down to it, everything from patterns, to contrasts and more importantly textures, have a significant impact in the outcome: after all, in its bare essence, we are dealing with fabrics…
It’s amazing how the same fabric ends up delivering such different garments through alternative production techniques, like in this case wool, used in the heavy knit cable cardigan and smooth floral scarf and herringbone slacks. Striped braces add some panache and the suple taupe suede derbies bring yet another texture to the mix.

Once you’ve got your basic shades of navy and black covered, investing in an unexpected topcoat such as this in herringbone brown spotted wool is definitely worth it. Tailored to my liking it’s a fresh take on this classic and a perfect match for darker shades such as navy, burgundy or charcoal. Love how the subtle understated navy and purple details on the tie match the shades on the cardigan and scarf…
