Continuing our series on how to wear certain colors, we move from two underrated menswear hues, green and orange, and one overrated one, black, to one that some men are reluctant to use because of its brightness or tone: yellow. As an accent, yellow pairs exceptionally well with classic menswear colors, and the range of tones it includes makes it quite versatile when featured as a larger article of clothing such as a sports coat.
Recently, we examined the style of P.G. Wodehouse’s Bertie Wooster in the 1990s UK television series Jeeves and Wooster. As the show title suggests, Jeeves and Wooster are a comedic pair, like Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello or Laurie and Fry, the actors who played them, so we can’t rightfully talk about Bertie’s style while ignoring Jeeves!
Although Bertie wears multiple outfits in each episode, Jeeves appears in the role of a valet throughout the series and is therefore nearly always in his valet’s uniform; as a servant, he doesn’t have the luxury of a varied wardrobe. In fact, he barely has a first name (revealed after more than 50 years to be Reginald). However, we can still derive a number of style ideas from what he wears and from the contrast between the two men.
