Go green when things get boring

Anywhere you go you always see a gentleman wearing a blue suit same as with navy and gray and it has always been the go-to suit or jacket colour. Those colours are always on top of your mind especially when you talk about menswear and it extends all the way to the other clothing like shirts, knitwears, overcoats, trousers and some details such as ties and socks. But what if one day you get bored to these colours and just wants to try an entirely different colour, what would it be?

I would guess that you will have other colours in mind but for me green would be my best option after blues and greys. Green is such a versatile colour that compliments very well with other colours. Go for the dark and muted shades of greens as it will match well to a lot of other colours.

I’m personally satisfied with this moss green suit that I picked from Skabo’s Made to Measure program in Super 130, but it was initially just the suit trousers until I realized that I have to order the suit jacket as well because I find the fabric really interesting and good.
