The Right Green


Sometimes you might realize that a sport coat and shirt combo is well paired with a certain color accessory (tie or square) but you wont be too sure of which tone of that color works. In that case its best to put them all against the counterparts and eyeballing them all to see which you are most comfortable with.

Here is what I mean:

The brown jacket works well with a light blue shirt and the orange square and all those colors would work really well with a green tie (as you saw yesterday) but which green is the right green?

The Marinella Hunter green tie with flowers?

The navy and Green beehive?

The lime green Marinella?

The Deep Dark Bottle Green?

Or the pistachio green?  They all work but personally I am leaning towards this one.   And you?

Seasons


Strange but true.  Lighter colors, seem to imply a sense of bright sun, freshness, outdoorsiness, hence the concept of Spring Colors (lighter, pastelly, fresher etc. ) exists.

By contrast, insert darker colors and get a sense of darkening skies, seriousness, Somberness and in general a more foreboding picture.

As far as seasons go I Personally prefer Fall. 🙂

Here are some visuals on the concept. (Try to foget the fact that the suit is a flannelly wool.  I am trying to convey an idea.)

Some more and were done


I promised Steve, my defacto inhouse webmaster that I would add tags and categorize and do all that boring stuff that I had posted and that I just wanted to get the pics online but he didn’t believe me and in truth I find the putting the stuff together just that much more fun, so I am gonna do a few more and then we will be done with this particular sportcoat/Shirt ensemble.

Same Shirt and Sportcoat, but mixing things up a bit here is some greens with Navy, and a square (never did get that up onto the site, for shame!) that should pick it up a bit.

Navy Tie with Green and Light Blue/Blue and Green Square

Here is the same tie with a different square.  The squares olive tones work with the jacket but some may be uncomfortable with how it comes to the tie.  remember thought that the square provides just a touch of color to the ensemble, and shouldn’t be the focal point.  Generally it shouldn’t be sticking that far out of the pocket, I just do that to show you how it goes.

I like this next tie.  I like how it complements the jacket and I like it for itself.  Soft celadon color with the browns and beiges make it perfect for the jacket.  The square was chosen to sort of shock a little more life into the ensemble.  The Browns and Ecru in the square works with the jacket and the square’s burgundy gives the shock (in a good way).

Rounding it out with the same tie and a more fitting square.  I like this square for the multitude of colors it has (pretty sure its more than 9 colors, and vivid too!).  the burgundy gives it a real jolt but the other colors match it well to the ensemble.  Bear in mind that with an off white square you will great in any of the above sets.

Soft Peach with Blue or Grey


So you know that I like orange and blue already (or was I just thinking about it and never got a chance to post?) , but here is a soft orangish peach that works into a blue gingham shirt with a pin stripe suit.  I took the shots and while i do like the light tie against the navy suit I think that the square might be too close in color to the tie. 

First is with a Navy pin stripe suit and second with a Grey stripe (I need to retake all my suits, oh…the time…).
