Color and Pattern Coordination

Blue striped suiting, gray felt hat with black band, black shoes, contrasting tie. Conservative 1930s attire.

A wild brown tweed like this calls for brown shoes and a brown hat. Both the shoes and the hat have good chunky proportions, going with the boldness of the tweed. The blue tie harmonizes with the blue overcheck. Keep the tie pattern small so that it does not compete with the tweed. A ’40s country look.

Blue houndstooth with a bit of reddish brown in it. Brown shoes. Brown hat, with a reddish band. Red tie. Early ’60s out and about.
