I was using clearlooks-phenix but with gtk 3.20 it is quite broken and
it hasn't been updated in quite some time. I have no idea if the dev
will code a new version for gtk 3.20+.

For now I'm using TraditionalOK from mate-themes, it is quite similar to
clearlooks-phenix and most gtk 3.20 bugs should be ironed out.
