Oft Overlooked

Face it, if your coat is black, charcoal or even navy its relatively boring as compared to your suit which might have a pattern because most coats do NOT have patterns.  Even basic construction details will be overlooked due to the nature of the garment which is to fit over your well tailored suit.  What better way to wake it up then with a dash of color like a scarf.

So get out there and dont be afraid, wake up the danged thing.  Here, as always, contrast is your friend.

An oft overlooked color scheme would be the Classic Black (or charcoal) coat with a strong rust or orange type accessory.

Here you have the knitted grey with charcoal and rust stripe knitted scarf in play against the 3/4 Colombo Cashmere coat.  (Only 2 more of those left in a 42 and 44 and at 850 they are a great buy.,( Not on the site so email me.)

Tucked into the coat it will look like this:

And getting a little more comfortable with color you might want to try a rust Colombo Cashmere scarf (also, not on the site, email me) with brown stripe and section which looks like this.

And this when adjusted properly.

It’s getting cold out there, enjoy the weekend!

  1. What about a navy cashmere three quarter coat. Orange is beautiful as is the grey red,but I’m olive skinned. Loro Piana dark burgundy seems nice. What about a slightly lighter blue? Is that still boring? I guess. Thanks for you’re help

  2. Hi and sorry for the delay. Light blue is certainly boring 😉

    But there are many scarves that have various colors in them so why stick with one color?

    What about something with blues and oranges or greys?
