Curiosity Explored

A good friend of mine has been pestering me (in only the nicest of ways) to include on my blog; images of what I wear on a day to day basis with the hopes of helping people understand how to best mix patterns, colors and pieces. While I don't yet have a camera that will allow for the clarity desired, I took this picture today with my Blackberry just to see what kind of feedback and readership it delivers.

Anytime you mix multiple pieces, colors and patterns I find it best to be able to keep the amount of color to a minimum (in this case only browns and blues) and make sure to be able to relate every article of clothing (or accessory) to at least one other element in the look. Pattern sizes must be noticeably different so they do not clash and compete for the eye.

In this picture: Light blue cashmere jacket with medium brown and light tan over check. The vest is a coffee brown cashmere (relates to the over check of the coat). Tie is a steel blue/gray wool (compliments jacket and trouser) with light and dark brown flowers (again compliments the overcheck). Shirt is light blue solid. Trousers (though not seen) are steel blue/gray solid.

If you think this was a good idea, you should visit the inspiration at (http://www.acuriousmonogram.com/) .... without a doubt you will find more creative outlooks and posts from his content on anything from music to fashion and everything inbetween. Thanks Don!
