But one should also include green in the everyday wardrobe - ties; socks; pocket squares; shoes.
...And green trousers to wear with odd jackets - cotton jackets; linen jackets; tweed jackets etc.
I recently acquired a pair of Olive drab trousers from Gentleman's Outfitters Hogspear; a pair of vintage Household Cavalry Officer's service dress trousers.
The Olive drab is a beautiful colour and very versatile to go with tans, browns, and blues. Being a natural mix of green and brown hues it is more suitable with many colours than say grass green, sage green etc - the latter hues maybe more appropriate for accessories.
The trousers are quite slim, but classic in design with double inward pleats, side adjusters, cuffs, and button fly.
The wool fabric is of excellent quality and so is the making.
And the price for a vintage pair of service dress trousers is quite affordable...
