Taka of Liverano made quite a splash the other day with his combination of a red striped shirt, brown linen jacket, and navy grenadine tie which was posted on The Armoury’s tumblr.
I thought I might post a version of this combo that I think is quite versatile season to season, as long as the weight of the fabrics in it are appropriate for the weather. Here’s a fairly casual summery version of it, with a light unlined jacket, some lightweight cotton chinos, and suede longwings.
