I wore it with a pink spread collar shirt from Jantzen, a pink/white striped Polo tie in linen, a pink/white polka dot silk handkerchief, and AE Byrons in chestnut.

I PMed you a response.
I am moving soon and need to unload things I don't wear. Happy to donate these to someone starting out rather than dropping them off with Goodwill. The catch? You pay shipping (Priority Mail flat rate box) and you have to take them both. The jacket details (sorry, I don't have any pictures to post here) Both 3 button, notch lapel: One is 100% linen, single vent - Nordstrom store brand 44R Medium Blue Other is wool/linen blend, double vented - Dalton & Forsythe...
