Work with what you’ve got
In dressing well, we all have constraints and obstacles, particularities dependent on ourselves that dictate what works and what doesn’t. I am very fair in complexion, with a dark beard, which means very dark navy or grey tends to make me look like a corpse, but I am also heavy, which means very light colours are a challenge. Regardless of what I see in magazines or on others, I have constraints particular to myself.
Jake has a different set of issues, with a pale complexion and red hair. The colours he tends toward show a keen eye to that, and he wears shades of rich blue, bitter chocolate brown, olive and forest green beautifully.
Dress for yourself.
