on the street: the bright suit

Look at this boycutie in the bordeaux suit. I love when people are distracted by their phone and don’t notice you taking a candid shot of them (until it’s too late). I don’t mind asking people to stop but I prefer a candid shot 9 times out of 10, if I can get it.

He is clearly polished from head to toe, and I approve of these color choices all around. I like the pastel brogues with the rich color of the suit, and the printed shirt underneath. So many don’t venture beyond a plaid pattern with a suit, if that.

I think so many different colors could work with this formula of a rich, dark suit color and a pale, pastel shoe color. A rich cobalt suit with buttercream shoes, a dark forest green suit with pale brown or baby pink shoes…I think any combination would be interesting.

All of the dark, rich colors seem to go beautifully with each other, too, as the shirt demonstrates nicely.
