It’s more of a question of what can’t you wear with it? Solid white, blue, pink, yellow or ecru shirts. Any combination of those colors in a candy stripe as long as the plaid is muted and you get the scale right. Tan, navy, or mid-gray trousers. Either flannel of gabardine. Just about any shade of brown or tan footwear, as well as black or burgundy. I think someone mentioned rust corduroy trousers, and they’re nice as well. Ties can be solid, or any pattern or stripe in a complimentary scale and pattern intensity with complimentary colors. Look at a color wheel, and see what goes with navy and dark green, just about everything. Easily the most versatile of plaids, particularly if it’s muted.
True enough, and generally the decisive point.Yeah, but it goes so well with pink.
Yawn.I never wear Black Watch, it's handsome but I dislike its historical associations. The Black Watch was formed to "watch" the highlands as part of the British pacification and subjugation of Scotland following the disinheriting of the legitimate Stuart line, and has more than a few shameful chapters in its history, including its participation in Operation Banner, disgraced by the British security services' collusion with loyalist paramilitaries.
LOL. Indeed, my (as I recall) $39, clearanced, Jos A Bank Blackwatch Dinner Jacket took the "walk of shame" to the Goodwill Store last winter, after I was told once again, " nice jacket, but haven't we seen you wearing that one more than a few times before?" Looking back, I wish the jacket had been a sport coat, rather than a dinner jacket design.I recently let my black watch blazer go after shedding some weight, but I wore it almost interchangeably with a navy blazer. At ten paces it has the same general coloring. I'll be looking to replace it at some point as it was one of the more versatile jackets I had.
I particularly likes pairing it with a pink OCBD and khakis.
