Hi, I am Charles. I am in New York. I'm going to tell you how to rock both both colors. This is one of my favorite suits. It is purple as you can see and it is not even that obnoxious or anything. As long as you keep it down a you don't... You can get color that works well with your skin tone. It is really about not taking it too seriously. In order to avoid any mistakes just keep it simple.
On this suit for example, I just pair this purple linen suit from Holland and Sherry with a white crisp shirt. In order to remind the color of the white shirt, I contrasted my buttonholes with a white thread and it is an easy way to avoid mixing too many orders colors and patterns which might make you look like a clown. If you take too many risk so when wearing bold colors the most important thing is to keep in mind is that you want to keep it as simple as possible. Just rock the suits and don't be scared to experiment.
