Here at Vanguard we have over 6000 fabrics for you to choose from, the variety is seemingly endless!
Within all of our ranges we have some patterns with accent colours like the ones above from the Ermenegildo Zegna traveller four season range. A beautiful collection of cloths made from Superfine Australian wool, woven in Italy which we import directly from this world renowned mill. I digress slightly, back to these patterns.
When selecting a fabric for a new bespoke creation people get very hung up on the accent colours.
Does the blue stripe bring out my eyes?
Is the lilac check going to match the colour scheme at my wedding?
My favourite colour is red but not the red of this pinstripe, a much brighter red.
Is there a different shade of blue lining to match the stripe.
While these things are great if they can be done, you should focus on the base. The accent colours of stripes or checks like the ones in the above fabrics will rarely be seen, they are essentially both light grey suits. As a tip and something we always do with our customers, hold the fabric 1.5-2 metres away from you to get a better idea of how it will look, more often than not these accent colours can not be seen.
