#2272 Good Looks from Little Brother – Olive Burnside Blazer

Most guys wear a combination of black, navy and grey in their everyday uniforms. There’s nothing wrong with that – as far as menswear’s concerned, tried and tested is a far safer option than trial and error. When we were putting together our Little Brother Spring/Summer collection, getting colour in there was a non-negotiable. If you’ve browsed the range, you’ll see there’s no black; some navy; a dusting of grey. There is, however, plenty of colour: Mustard yellow, blood red, sky blue, and olive green – a rainbow of hues, all of which can be safely paired with garments of subtler shades. Our old mate Simon here is wearing the olive Burnside blazer with the blue Worker shirt and bone Burnside pants. Try it at home; you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results. And just in case you were worrying that shirt was a little plain, take a closer look – it’s covered in tiny speckles of colour, including blue, red, green and yellow. As with all good looks, the devil’s in the details.

    Loving the colour of that blazer Isaac! On another note, having a sulk as I think I have to lay my last year’s LB chino shorts to rest. Let’s just say that no matter how great shorts are, the crotch is never forgiving!

    Very nice, Ise. When I visited the Little Brother range in the ChCh ‘container mall’, the olive blazers had almost sold out – just one left! It’s a good look!
