Hello my friend. What do you thinkabout matching blue sneakers with olive trousers or shorts. Because I have heard that these two colours doesn't match a lot.

came here from Tim Dessaint's vid!

I usually find a random article that I want to wear, and then build up one at a time, usually pants > socks + shoes > shirt > belt > watch > outer top, then I might switch one out if I get an idea late in the journey. Right now I'm wearing cream coloured puma roma suede shoes with black socks, gray sweatpants with black speckled heather in them, maroon ABERCROMBIE logo running down from the top, and a white t-shirt. Looks killer AF with the off-white and maroon, and I have blond hair, green eyes with teal nerd glasses on, oh and my oak brown wooden watch which draws everything together. I learned these techniques from my girlfriend and basically studying women :) Then I went next-level by studying my dapper brothers from other mothers, and my graphic designer bros (I'm a software engineer)... they are big on colour theory and balance too. All about that design composition baby.

How so?
Fiona Young (3 months ago)
Try to match yourself with the right formality. And don't forget belt and buckle. They are simply put but maybe indicate the quality of your dressing. The same way with the metal watches which should match the belt and buckle. Silver goes with silver while gold goes with gold.

Isn't white a lack of color and black all the colors combined?🤓 what do I know? 😩

I like his channel but listening to this as a graphic design student hurts my ears, you’re not supposed to wear colours that complement your skin tones, you’re supposed to wear either Monotone Contrast (with in 3 colours) usually one monotone piece with a color that contrasts. So a good example is a brown coat and a light blue jeans. A variation of the previous contrast you can use harmonise colours, BUT these colours must be the opposite color of your skin tones Dark skin can wear more white and light blue,yellow. Yellow skin can try more colder colours and more monotones Lighter skins can try practically anything and it will contrast pretty well.

great video dude,,
Hardy Mcfly (4 months ago)
Great video just to be clear white is the lack of color and black is all colors combined....
Shiqun Ou (4 months ago)
I feel like yellow undertone skin would look better with cooler colors to complement it. I have yellow undertone, and I def wear silver more than gold. Gold or other warm tone colors just make my skin look more yellow.

What is the style of that leather jacket and those shoes he’s wearing with the yellow shirt

Absolutely brilliant. Always been fascinated by colour in fashion but never knew there were so many ways to apply it. Really hit the nail on the head here. Well done.

I always wear black, don't really like color on me but this video was helpful. But yo, that outfit at 7:50 , burn it lmao.

I did not understood what's color saturation is
Marcus Welby (5 months ago)
I'll share something with you that you may never come to grips with. (maybe when you get a little more mature)Your style ideas have been to influenced by women. Overly fimenized if you will. Cropped pants, rolled up pants , tappered and skinny jeans, ha. Dress like a man and stop follow trends and trying so hard to please women. Anybody else agree?
HouseOfAdriana (4 months ago)
Fashion between men and women have been blending in recent years, for sure, but I don't think he dresses purposely to be more feminine, I think he focuses more on actual coordination and looks. If you consider that to be a feminine trait, that's fine, but a lot of men and women alike see that as a sign of maturity, self-respect, and organization.

I think blue and brown do not match , Brown is a warm color and blue is a cool color

Matthew Carandang (6 months ago)

Daradi (2 months ago)
It's dependent on what light source is shining on you, if it's a warm color then it's probably going to be green and vice verca

i really like your videos..pls do outfit to tropical country like Thailand please
Anthony Johnson (6 months ago)
I've found, at least for me, that one of the coolest and smoothest looks is an outfit is one that is composed mainly of " analogous grays." That is, two colors that exist next to each other on the wheel, in their grayer version,,....and of the same value (lightness or darkness). for example: Light Blue Gray jeans, with a Light Violet Gray button down. Dark Blue Gray Jeans with a Dark Blue/Green Gray Henley. Middle Orange Gray (brown) Chino's with a Middle Yellow Gray (Ochre) Crew Neck Sweater,...and so on. You can go around the whole color wheel and find tons of possibilities that fit into this Analogous color harmony scheme. So only slight contrast in Color, with very little or no contrast in Value or Saturation/Intensity of the colors. If the largest items (pants and tops) are made from that, then whatever accessories or shoes you put on will go nicely. I hope that's not too over simplified,..but as a beginner I really find a lot of possibilities with that harmony. Thank you.

Ok so in the thumbnail, there's that 2nd outfit in the middle, and i love those blue jeans. But if i were to shop it on ASOS or any other sites, what type of blue would it be ?
Myo Win Htun (7 months ago)

Filip Hägerström (8 months ago)
That moment when you check your veins and then remember that you are colour blind and therefore can't see the difference between blue and green....

Justen Eaton (11 months ago)
Hey man, great video. I am someone who likes to match, but can being too "matchy-matchy" make an outfit bland? Is there an occasion where you could wear a crazy, loud shirt with an otherwise monochrome look?
Dr. Siracha (5 months ago)
Yes and yes

Hi Marcel, thank you for the advice! I found the video very useful. Was wondering if you would be working on a video about Fit. That would be really useful. Alvin from Singapore.

Bryce Thalackal (11 months ago)
I love using colors in outfits, but could you go into more depth woth color as a statement? I enjoy mixing bright colors that go together, usually blending the 2-color theroy but with a lot of colorful statement pieces that compliment each other on the color wheel. Super colorful outfits would be a cool video imo
Ahmad Muzzammil (11 months ago)
Can you elaborate on colours vs. skin tone? (i.e, what are the colours that matches best with dark to light complexion). P.s. Great video. Been waiting for this.
Luis S. Canaán (11 months ago)
You should get a microphone and get that sound around your voice cleaned up. Thumbs up, great video.
One Dapper Street (11 months ago)
Luis S. Canaán lol this is our new Sennheiser, I just started the edit and am used to jacking up the audio, my videographer didn’t revisit that after I handed it off to him, so that’s why that happened — but appreciate you looking out :) glad you liked it!
