Re: Lilac and lavender

There's no point in being like that about it. You started the thread, Beeston. If you actually want to keep discussing the topic, we all would love to talk about it. Otherwise, just name it "Beeston's Pity Party" so we know to delete it right away.

Re: Lilac and lavender

I have said a lot about it. Its a 2000ies colour. When TML still had the "seconds" in their basement.

Re: Lilac and lavender

I think its wearable. I have a wonderful linen lilac POW check coat by Partenopea that gets lots of wear summer evenings.

I like all these shirts too.

It's not an easy colour to wear. I thought this would look okay with a plain grey suit and a purple knit tie that one of the guys on here gave me. It always goes back in the wardrobe though.

Not an easy color to wear? What color is it?

I would say Lilac with track stripes, its not a good photo.

You could always try it with a rougher tweed, gray or brown... Works for pink, in my experience...

Sergeant Troy had a purple shirt and tie in the ‘painted in blood’ episode last night. 2002 vintage.
Barnaby’s suits are poor - sleeves too long etc. It might be a deliberate feature by the costume department. Midsomer is too idealised. They have pubs and shops and all sorts of clubs and activities. At least the bank was being closed down in last night’s episode. The reality is they would mostly commute into the city or be retired folk.
