Makeshift 3-Piece and Snow
With heavy snowfalls overnight, I decided to go with a makeshift 3-piece suit. The idea behind that is simple: Trousers, odd jacket or blazer, cardigan or waistcoat. I think it works very well, and makes for great layering. I was wearing my black peacoat, plaid scarf tied in an ascot knot, houndstooth and leather gloves, Ray-Ban aviators, brown corduroys, black boots, and red socks. The three-piece included a grey spread-collar shirt, blue dog tie, red cardigan, navy blazer, and white linen pocket square. The square played off the white in the dogs’ fur, and its blue border linked in quite well with the rest of the outfit. The grey shirt looks quite good with the whole outfit, although a white shirt would also have worked. The red cardigan ties in with the red socks quite well, and the brown cords add a cosy feeling to the outfit. Although the navy blazer works well here, a grey plaid blazer would have added some more pattern to the outfit. Tomorrow will be a taste of spring featuring new items I have purchased.
