How many combinations can we make?
First off, its not only about colour matching, its also about fabric matching. The suits are made up of the following: 1. Light grey solid wool, Super 100 (durable, no shine) 2. Black two toned pinestripe wool, Super 120 (occasional wear, sheen) 3. Navy Blue with thin pink/green pinestripes wool, Super 100 (durable, light, no shine).
Since the black is more of a formal suit (Super 120 with sheen), its difficult to pair the jacket or pants with the other suits – it would look mismatched since the fabric is slightly different. Meanwhile the grey and navy blue suits can be paired together in any combination shown below:
So the answer is 5 combinations (4 with the grey/blue and the black suit on its own). Next time, I will add shirts and show how the formal suit can be taken from work to evening.
