A Touch of Discretion

I appreciate a touch of color in my look. Now, I prefer muted colors - shades even - over more rich and vibrant ones so I can not see myself wearing for example the chair in the picture.

Accessories offer up the right level of visual interest and discretion. Ties and socks have already been thoroughly thought through; how else to balance the uniformity and expanse of a mid-grey, three-quarter length winter coat? A pair of gloves or a pocket square in the breast pocket would be refined. One does not need to stop there though. On this day the lapel is home to a wool felt flower. So even though I would not wear the chair, it does work well on the lapel of my coat.
