price couldn't be beat on STP. Now, I just have to figure out what to wear with it - -advice welcomed. Of course, if it doesnt work the beauty of STP is back it goes!

Thanks

Various shades of brown, blue, grey, green and maybe even BLACK. I must say that it does look like a suit coat.

thanks for the input. What makes you say it looks like a suitcoat? STP is selling it as a sportcoat and I wouldn't think they would get it wrong (like an ebay seller might)

It's just that sport jackets with vertical stripes are not very common so when I see one I tend to think that it may be an orphaned suit coat.

I agree that striped sportscoats tend to look like orphaned suit coats but in this case, I think you're fine.

Those definitely aren't (or at least shouldn't be) suit coat stripes.

A suit in that fabric would be very Willy Wonka

There is a picture in this month's Gentry, a japanese clothes mag, and there is a guy wearing a suit very, very similar to that jacket.

The vest, pocket square, and conservative shirt-tie combination make it look like a suit jacket. Without those, it wouldn't. (Also a factor is the illusion of solid gray.)

It probably is too formal to pair with most jeans, but you could try dark blue jeans with conservative-style brown shoes. If you have tan pants, they would work. Only black might be a problem, because of "rules" and shoes.

Charcoal grey trouser. You may have to try several shades to find the best one. Cool jacket, I like it.
