In terms of the colour scheme one would say this is an outfit better suited for an evening out, however, I think the grey dress pants and grey candy stripe shirt negate that idea.
Going back to options and alternatives, they definitely lingered. I thought I could go with a velvet waistcoat because of the conspicuously dormant heat and humidity. I decided to go with this black linen jacket, for the obvious reason of it being light weight and not a conductor of heat. A black velvet jacket was also out of the question because of its weight and me not wanting to look like Braylon Edwards. I also wanted to go with burgundy shoes since the pants have beautiful hints of burgundy but I decided that these black mocassins by Pringle would be the real deal.
The final outcome. I rarely feel complete without a pocket square therefore this crisp white one completed the look. In another post, on another day I will share and give you a close up of the pants I am wearing. They have a perculiar shape, colour and fit but I love them so much I had....like I said on another day.
Finishing touches inspired by well dressed.
