Under-used but always appreciated, that is the combination of black and white and maroon. The houndstooth patterned wool and silk jacketing in the photo, one of the last of that combination in John Hardy's Ascot book, will call for dark red complements.
One jacket can help visualize the look of another. It lacks the smooth finish and slight sheen of the first cloth but in the second photo, a different black and white coat previews how a slubby red Donegal inspired shantung silk could add texture as well as color to black and white this summer.
