Lotsa Squares

According to Alan Flusser, one can match “like patterns”  (squares with squares, dots with dots ,stripes with stripes etc.) so long as the size of the patterns are different.

Using the same jacket and shirt as last post we show Flussers principle in action.  The squares on the pattern of the jacket are large (windowpanes) yet the squares on the tie are not, and they blend well together.  Note how the tie has not a drop of brown in it yet it works well with the jacket and thats due to the bluye, ecru/grey and even the navy which the jacket has as well (see the closeup I show below).


Of course swapping out the grey shirt for the light blue one below gives an even stronger look.


And finally if you bring in the square that I was reffering to in the previous post you get this look.  I like an abstract square here as another definitive pattern might look goofy.  Certainly if you tried to put in another square patterened pocket square.

Here is the closeup of the fabric, with the close flash which distorts the colors somewhat you get a better look at the blues in the jacket (The closeup also shows the blues (one of about 9 colors ) in the orange square:
