Monochrome Song

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Febrero 15th, 2010

Monochrome doesn’t have to be boring.

In fact, for men, it is one the most difficult sartorial challenges.

When men want to blend in, but at the same time achieve some flair, they usually resort to unnecessary flourishes like fluorescent-colored ties, thick or blingy jewelry, or attention-grabbing footwear.

While these are all welcome, the way to appear more suave and refined is to simply stick to one color – of course in different shades, textures, and fabrics.

This applies to shirt-and-tie, shirt-jacket-tie, and even entire suit combinations.

As simple as it may sound, getting rid of the almost infinite choices for color brings more attention to subtler, and I feel, more important things – like fit, cut, and movement.

Of course, everything changes when we go over to casual wear, where things should be less stuffy. But still, just imagine what you can do with all of the black, gray, and khaki pieces in your wardrobe. Put them together of course!
