1. 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.

    1. Denim blue + silver chalk stripe flannel for suiting
    2. French blue + silver micro dot silk for tie
    3. 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.

    Details | Suit - P Johnson for GW | Shirt - Ascot Chang for GW | Tie - Herringbone | PS - vintage Japanese cloth | Beaters - Crocket & Jones “Belgrave”

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