Anonymous asked: I am thinking of purchasing the Brooks Brothers tartan trench, found by googling just that. I own very few lighter items and am trying to move towards a less dark look. Conservative brights during the winter, and more Liberal brights during the summer. I am curious. What do you think would be some great pairings with the coat?
I assume you are talking about the Black Fleece trench, which is pretty sick. I would pair it with mid-navy donegal or flannel trousers. Or maybe some British khaki-coloured trousers and a blue DB. Or how about a thick navy mock neck sweater and some grey flannels? Add some cordovan-coloured loafers or some brown monks to any of those looks and you’d be all set. There are clearly a lot of possible combos out there, but I would keep the accompanying items pretty basic with a coat like that.
