I came across this commendable photo somewhere and thought it worth sharing. The objective of a man's dress is to look good without appearing studied, and here Patrick Grant, the proprietor of Savile Row tailors Norton & Sons, does just that.
The combination of a dark gray flannel suit, light blue shirt, light gray bow and a deep maroon pocket square may have taken some thought but does not look it. Nothing matches, everything works together, and the bow tie gives the combination a bit of style. In America we might wear brown shoes, however a dark gray suit is the best time to wear black oxfords. No complaints from this observer.
Though personally I am against uncuffed trousers worn with a double breasted jacket.
