Brown Suit

The brown suit has its roots not in the city, but in the countryside. Its shades matching that of forests and hills rather than buildings and paved streets, the brown suit serves its purpose of bringing a distinguished formality to the plainly informal setting of the rural landscape. Often found in tweeds, flannels, linen and cotton, the brown suit is a logical choice when a more formal dark grey or blue suit might look out of place. While not something you’d wear downtown, the brown suit makes itself at home at events with a rustic tone. Pair it with light blue, ecru and even pink shirting and textured neckwear. Naturally, it’s also at home with brown dress shoes and even brogue boots.
