I have a thick twill sportcoat like that that belonged to my grandfather as a young man. Two, actually. He must have liked them.I wouldn't have considered the cloth a suiting -- was it commonly used for that?
Regardless of the width, the shirt stripe is a pattern too many. A solid would soothe the eye and ground all the business elsewhere.

Sure, but this isn't the CBD thread. My point is that the Good Taste thread seems preoccupied with suits in an age when the majority of men don't wear suits. That's odd. There's nothing inherently more tasteful in wearing a suit than a sportcoat, especially if a suit isn't appropriate for the occasion.Agree that it's important for a sportcoat not to look too suity, but I think SF tends to take that to unnecessary extremes.
