Monday Chalkadelia Blues
What happens when one sleeps with the heater on? Blured vision due to dried out eyes..
Many say to not overplay one colour tone - I agree in particular with the red & green spectrum.
Though playing with blue (as well as grey is very business) is quite safe - provided you have a white canvas to build on as this will provide enough contrast or crispness.
Other tricks are playing with scale of patterns. Hint - Make sure they are all noticeably different, as well as different types of cloth.
Today I start with a white cotton poplin shirt as the canvas to anchor the 3 blue cloths with different scales.
- Denim blue + silver chalk stripe flannel for suiting
- French blue + silver micro dot silk for tie
- China blue + white snow flake stiff cotton for pocket square
Chestnut calf shoes to break up the blue spectrum - suede would be another example - the brown horn buttons also bring this into balance.

* back to blurred vision - WTF was I thinking with my sock choice!
