I went to Saks today and bought a clearly orphaned Purple Label suit jacket. It is double-breasted, dark fabric with white pinstripe, and ticket pocket. In my opinion, the options are: 1. Wear with contrasting pants - like white or linen. Would make a nice summery look? 2. Try to get Ralph Lauren to make me some pants, assuming they still have the fabric in stock, but risk having it come off of a different bolt and therefore look slightly different. It would be way too formal to wear with odd pants were it not for the ticket pocket, I think. But, with white pants it might be nice. I'm going to go to Ralph Lauren tomorrow to see the fabric situation. Thoughts?
