Because it's related to the theme of green and purple, I'm going to post
an illustration from a children's annual.
It's from the Monster Book for Boys†
and shows three colourfully dressed cowboys. One is wearing green and purple. Real cowboys, I suspect, were not so picturesque.
I like green and purple. More people should wear it. Unfortunately,
I couldn't find many other examples of this combination on the web. I've seen engravings
of 18th century French courtiers wearing such colours, but Google wasn't helpful
in locating them online.
The nearest I came was an article about court fashion during the reign of Louis XIV in the Serbian blog
Moda Nekad i Sad (Fashion Then and Now)‡. There are two pictures which approximate the colour scheme I'm trying to describe:
Here's that turquoise Moroccan shirt again, worn with a purple satin sarouel.
Another pair of vivid colours that go very well together. The sarouel was
made to my design by my tailor in Tangier, so isn't quite like a conventional qandrissi. It's
full-length, and the "crotch" is the lower edge of the trousers, with two elasticated
holes for my ankles. Unlike the "hippie" versions that I've mentioned before, this
is carefully tailored, with pleats, belt loops, proper pockets, and a fly.
