It is a fashion, but not exactly a new invention. I’ve seen the combination of odd jacket and shorts on fashion plates from the 1930s.
The Pitti Uomo fair last week demonstrated different takes on it. Personally, I favor a conservative approach like a blue blazer and cream white shorts similar to the arrangement from d’Avenza on the lower photo. It maintains an illusion of elegance.

Not one of Alan Flusser’s best days…
I like the madras jacket and navy shorts but I am puzzled by Mr Flusser’s red loafers.
No One says
Well there goes what little credibility Flusser had left. The young man he is with looks terribly dull and looks more like a US politician than someone in fashion.
