One of the most fashionable colours for men this “A/W” will require you to step out of your faded black/grey/navy comfort zone.
But not very far.
It’s green – and a very fine slice of the colour wheel at that.
According to the experts at GQ, it’s the fragment of the spectrum known as “moss green”, although you’re fairly safe to stray into “emerald” and “bottle” before the fashion commissars start ordering your re-education.
If you’re still not sure about exploring the possibilities, just pretend it’s camo.
After all, with that sort of timid attitude, no one will notice you anyway.
For the more courageous, the one rule for wearing green this autumn winter is “spend”.
Keep that price high and you can’t go wrong.
That way even if people aren’t on board with the mossiness, they can’t question your commitment.
