Leave it to Thom Browne to design a paisley suit for Brooks Brothers that is both preppy and edgy at the same time. Mr. Peacock adores this paisley look with the saddle shoes. If the suit is too much for your taste, just wear the pants paired with a simple polo shirt.
Admittedly, a paisley suit might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but any gentleman could incorporate a paisley tie into his wardrobe. These two beauties are on sale here.
A scarf is another easy way to add paisley into your peacock attire. These beautiful colored cotton and silk paisley scarves would be very chic. Or how about a skull and crossbones paisley scarf by Barker Black, for a more edgy look?
Paul Smith usually offers some sort of paisley shirt. You could wear this beautiful blue and lavender paisley shirt with the sleeves casually rolled up this summer (notice the contrasting polka dot fabric detail inside the cuffs), and then with a cashmere sweater this autumn.
We’re having a heat wave in San Francisco today—it’s in the 90’s, so my thoughts are on summer. Either of these paisley swim trunks would look smart at the pool or beach, which sounds very nice right now. More information here and here.
Not every gentleman could pull-off wearing this paisley shirt, but I still like the pattern and color palette.
Mr. Peacock is a huge fan of Engineered Garments and this paisley blazer is quite handsome. It reminds me of something that would have been worn to a Newport garden party in the 50’s or 60's.
Maybe paisley isn’t right for your wardrobe, however, a bit of paisley in your home could be very chic. You could start off with some paisley sheets.
Or be inspired by the Lady with Panache, Lisa Borgnes Giramonti, who chose these gorgeous Peter Dunham drapes for her living room.
A perfect summer look—Peter Dunham’s Kashmir Paisley used for a slipcover.
Mr. Peacock is going to be wearing his vintage Byblos cotton paisley tie this spring. I've always fancied this tie and I like to wear it ala Ralph Lauren as a “belt” with my favorite khakis.
Do you have any paisley in your wardrobe?
