This is one of Scott Schuman's earliest blog photos. The man in the photo appeared several times in the Sartorialist and has since cost a small fortune as I have attempted to incorporate some of his looks into my wardrobe. This photo has long been an inspirational favorite, but I hadn't tried it.
It's a tricky combo to pull off. Outside of a garden, light pink, bright yellow & blue is not a natural act. Care is required to get the hues right. The pants and shirt combo need the jacket. Otherwise, too much is too much.
Theoretically, it's spring clothes season, yet Mayberry is cold and damp. To lighten my spirits and encourage spring weather to return I gave old Mr. Yellow Pant's outfit a try. I traded his cords for poplin, used my brolly, and wore my favorite navy db jacket. It came off better than expected.
All I need now is a pink stripped brolly.
