What sport coat with navy/blue trousers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I noticed a hole in my wardrobe: sport coats that coordinate with navy. I understand that navy blazers are not appropriate with nav trousers. What do you guys suggest?

I would go with a rustic-red one. Like the left one on http://www.h-huntsman.com/huntsman-ready-tailored.htm But not if the pants are too dark. B

Oatmeal-colored tweed?

I'd say wear pretty much the colors and tones you'd wear in trousers to go with a navy blazer. That would include medium grey, tan, etc. Make sure there's enough contrast between the jacket and the trousers.

A gray tweed or herringbone could look nice. I used to have a medium blue tweed sportcoat that looked good with blue trousers.

I think gardel puts it well. And like Johnw86, I've worn grey herringbone with navy trousers. I love navy trousers -- but sometimes feel ill at-ease with my color combos. I'd say that a blue seersucker would work or a cream (or other light color) silk/mohair jacket. Or maybe rust colored (I think Ben Silver grouped a jacket like this with navy trousers in their catalog).

[quote] Do you mean this one: http://www.bensilver.com/fs_stor....group=1 I think the approach suggested by gardel is a bit restrictive. One of the nice things about a sport coat is that you can really let your self add more funky colors. For example, I would not wear a rustic pair of pants, but it is a nice choice for a jacket. B

I have some beautiful navy zanellas that go nicely with a pearl gray silk herringbone sport coat. If that's all the color you want, use a white shirt. If you want more, use a pink shirt. Even the right lilac one. If pink shirt, I have a navy and pink tie that looks great. Nothing wrong with colors.
