Bad Taste?: Mellow Days of Gold and Yellow
Let us not kid ourselves thinking that patterned polos will ever be better than a solid color. While many colors in pic 1 are staples in any man's wardrobe, yellow is often missing due to the (mis)conception that yellow is a hard color to wear. Norwegian heritage males do not do well in yellow, as it tends to make their complexion look washed out. However, anybody with skin darker than cream would do well to adopt a bit of yellow in their life. Avoid pairing yellow shirts with khaki, as it's tone doesn't contrast the yellow well, but navy chinos and jeans do well mixed with yellow. If it's blue, you're set to brew (harhar). Rules are meant to be broken, but yellow needs a little help. Take a jump, add some yellow, and use good taste.
