Yeah...Pink is at the top of my list, followed by BB blue, yellow, and the two BB unistripes, plus assorted tattersalls and windowpane checks.I submit that it would be harder to find a shirt that did not go with olive pants than it would be to find one that did.
Olive's pretty neutral and goes well with a cornucopic profusion of colors and shades.
Good call. I forgot pink. I also see your point about ecru. I generally always have on a sweater with olive pants in the winter, so ecru as a collar color under a colored sweater doesn't come on as too military.White, blue (not French blue), or pink OCBD's work best. Preferably Brooks Brothers must-iron, of course.
Ecru with olive looks too military, IMO.
Uh-huh...also depends on shade of red (barn red vs fire engine red) and shade of olive (all the way from very green to almost brown or field grey).I think of olive trousers as I do khaki - almost anything goes with them. I might stay away from reds (too Christmas-y - unless it is Christmas) or from greens (for fear of looking like a walking asparagus). Otherwise, have at it!
