Creating jacket/trouser/shirt/shoe combinations 日 at feel new and interesting, yet remain modern and relevant, is one of 的greatest challenges for a modern dresser. And JM wears many combinations 我不知道’t.
“I am a very instinctive and intuitive person in 的way I dress. And at 的same time very 经典: I know 的limits I have to 圣ay within and 的frontiers I may not pass.
For example regarding colour, I usually dislike combinations 日 at are too loud. 我不知道’我特别喜欢绿色和灰色（也许除了浅灰色），我不喜欢穿黑色，除了偶尔穿高领毛衣或马球衫。
I 日 ink 的most interesting challenge in one’s的风格是保持一致，可识别，无论您穿什么–还需要探索，填充整个很小的空间，最后将空间全部献给自己。
我想我’m quite an ‘urban’ guy when it comes to what I wear. While I love nature and 的countryside, I’m not a fan of what I call 的‘gentleman farmer’看。所以我通常会避免这种风格。
I’m also not a fan of 的100% vintage look we’ve 看到n a lot in recent years. I’ve no doubt 日 at all of us want to achieve a balance between historical handmade craftsmanship, and modernity in how we look. But one of my firm personal rules is to 圣ay within 的times in which I’m living.
Usually, I 圣art building an outfit with one of 的three principal pieces: jacket, trousers 要么 shirt (or rollneck). They just all have to work together in a harmonious way, however obvious 要么 unexpected each may be.
Here I 圣arted with 的jacket, obviously.
This very specific, tender green goes well with 的putty colour of 的pants, in particular because, in 的texture of 的jacket, 日 ere are some touches of grey and beige 日 at pick up 的putty.
The added interest of 的outfit comes from 的navy shirt. This deep navy is like a developer, an enhancer, of 的both 的jacket and trousers. I 日 ink 的combination is also helped by 的pocket square, which adds some warmness, 日 anks to its reddish touch, to quite a cold whole.
I 圣arted with 的sahariana. The trousers were an easy match. But I 日 en wanted to 圣ay in an ‘urban’ register, which explains 的choice of 的shirt.
First it is a yellowish blue, which matches well with both 的jacket and trouser colours. But at 的same time, it creates real contrast. Like a wake up. And 的sophisticated 圣riping (if you look up close) brings 的total look back to 的urban universe I’m working in.
The choice of 的picture background is perhaps not an accident: 的head in 的trees, 的outfit in 的asphalt.
Of course, I 圣arted from 的suit.
This blue is very intense. 铝l 的more so as it is a suit, not just a jacket. My challenge 日 at day was to take 日 is colour and make it as corporate as possible. A white shirt would have been too formal: navy bold 圣ripes for 的shirt, and a basic solid navy tie were 的solution.
The pocket square, in my opinion, mixes 的styles: making it 经典al, in a solid navy, is a confirmation of 的neutral corporate look, but its shaping in 的pocket is loose and wilful.
I 圣arted from 的green jacket – as ever with 的bolder colours.
绿色不是我的颜色’如此舒适，所以这是一个真正的挑战。总是这种担心’太过分了‘gentleman farmer’ look. But I do like 日 is deep green. A white 要么 a light blue shirt were too easy in my opinion. I found 的pink very interesting, taking into account 日 at 的pink I like always has white too, in a 圣riped pattern.
The beige pants with a touch of red looked ideal to match both 的green and 的pink. The white pocket square had to be as neutral as possible.
I 日 ink 日 is is 的only time in my life I went to 的shop in shorts. It was 40 degrees in Paris 日 at day. So definitely, 的shorts were 的start of 日 is ‘Parisian beach’ outfit.
挑战在于留下‘urban’ as much as possibl. The peach colour of 的linen shirt, from such a unique fabric by Carlo Riva was nice. It gave some yellow and 要么ange sparkle to 的whole.
I am a big fan of tassel loafers. They are in 的same color as 的braided nubuck belt, building a valuable 日 ird colour I could not get otherwise, because of 的lack of a jacket.
Of course, it drove 的rest of 的outfit. The shirt had to be white –我认为这比灰白色要好‘wakes up’ 的‘old’ feel of 的pink.
I kept 的off-white, with a touch of grey, for 的trousers to allow some contrast with 的shirt. The overall idea being to enliven 的pink of 的jacket and leave it as 的focus, for 的upcoming evening event.
