Rod’s Togs – Autumn Colours, Flannel Blazer

The temperature in Florida has dipped a bit recently, plus I’ve had to travel north for work so this new jacket from Suitsupply has been a welcome addition.

It’s made from wool and cashmere flannel with a soft hand – perfect for those crisp autumn days. It appears to be a solid reddish brown from distance, but up close there are several different colours woven in, providing an interesting depth and texture.

In a recent blog post about my Prince of Wales suit I mentioned how I tried the suit out with various combinations of supporting items – shirt, tie, etc., until hitting on what I thought was the optimal look, then I tend to stick with that tried and tested version.

This topic provoked some lively discussion over on the http://www.modculture.com forum. Some people prefer to have an almost infinite choice of combining jackets, trousers, shirts and ties etc., whereas I tend to aim for that which I like best and stick with it.

After trying out a few different versions my favorite is with the sage green tie and mid grey flannels.
