Spring has arrived, WIWT Apr 25, 2013
A lighter coat with darker trousers is sometimes frowned up on by some #menswear experts that thinks a coat should always be darker that the trousers it is worn with. I sort of agree with that sentiment when it comes to for winter wear. But for the warmer months I find that a lighter coat works great (think white dinner jackets worn at the Riviera).
Today the weather has finally turned warmer and there are hopes that we might actually get a summer here this year. I therefore decided to break out one of my lighter jacket, a cream coloured silk/cashmere jacket from Zegna. It feels great as a change from the heavy flannels and tweeds that have featured heavily here the last couple of months….
