Jake, of The Armoury, can wear complicated patterns exceptionally well. Compound that by the fact that he has fair skin and red hair and it takes some serious skill to pull off what he does.
Like many well dressed Italians, he favors the use of patterns mainly in his jackets and keeps the rest of his look anchored in solid, neutral colors that either flatter his complexion (reds and greens) or cool down an otherwise busy combination (blues and grays).
Some of the best dressed people the world has ever seen were incredible at mixing and matching patterns (Luciano Barbera, The Duke, Gary Cooper). I’m just happy I picked out a clean pair of underwear this morning.

I need to get on my patterned jackets also.
