But ... the Napoli guys wear blue jackets with blue buttons, and they can't be wrong. Can they?

Those are not The BlazerSuitâ„¢, so it does not count.

I don't know-- the patch breast pocket seems increasingly au courant.

But ... they put blue buttons on jackets that are never meant to be worn with matching trousers. Wouldn't blue buttons be more "correct" on a BlazerSuitâ„¢ rather than just a blazer?

Tossing my two cents in with the switch to brown buttons crowd, but the blazer suit is still quite nice. I particularly like it with the grey flannel.

That's your call. You invented the damn thing.

To be clear, this was intended to have brown buttons. The blue ones are a mistake. But I may keep them anyway.

I think they look fine in all of the above combinations except the last. They really don't work with the khaki pants.

Do you have any concern about more wear to the jacket than to the pants?

I'm probably going to order a navy linen version of the BlazerSuit, unbeknownst to me, and will probably wear the jacket separately with some frequency.

No. If anything, people say that flannel pants wear out first, so wearing the jacket more than the pants should be fine. But my personal experience with flannel suits is that they take a long time to wear out, and some wear can be counted as "patina."

Fwiw, I have an italian-styled odd jacket w/ blue buttons. A light tweed, 3 btn, double vent, patched pockets (only two), swelled edges. The buttons overlap too. My only jacket w/ this. The overlap bugs me sometimes, not the blueness of the buttons. But come to think of it, I don't ever wear it w/ tan pants. I use a brass-buttoned blazer for that. Interesting to be made aware of that. I'd leave it be until you feel strongly about switching. An Ignatian principle of discernment is, "Do nothing while confused."

For me, that is a recipe for never doing anything.

You just need a good spiritual director. Regrettably, Matt keeps me busy.

It's nice I don't know that I would call it a blazer considering it's got pants to match, that makes it a suit. You could wear it as a blazer which you are but that dose not make it so.
