Pantone has released their colours of the Fall/Winter 2017 and the first one we will focus on is called Shaded Spruce, we call it Dark Teal. This suit was showcased in our Fashion Show at the Tradex back in January and we had lots of people coming up to us asking about it. Below we will show you how to wear it, but first here are the other 9 colors of the Fall/Winter season.
Let's start with the title picture. Everything can be paired with white, both in the pocket square and the dress shirt but the brown tie goes perfectly as well, either light or dark.
Let's go a little different, still holding onto the brown tie but this time it is paired with a light brown dress shirt. Naturally brown and green go together, just look at nature. This look is also partnered with a white pocket square with brown piping.
Another option with this suit is to have a tie made from the same fabric, we do that. The white shirt comes back into play with this look but it is paired with a neutral grey vest (another colour for the F/W) and a patterned pocket square that compliments the suit/tie and vest.
Notice this suit has peak lapels.
Let's get into pairing this suit with darker colours, starting with the navy blue patterned dress shirt on the three piece double breasted suit. Dark shirts & accessories on a dark suit has been a go to with my charcoal suit as well as my navy blue, I always receive compliments on the outfit. Which leads us to our last look...
I am a huge fan of this outfit! Even down to the white patterned pocket square to break up the dark colours.
