Thanks for the response. I'd be happy to patronize a local business, regardless.

Lmao. I also read jester's "snagged it yesterday" comment to mean he had purchased one yesterday. That sucks about the fabric pull. It's the biggest downside to grenadines, IMO. Supposedly there is a way to pull it back into place from the backside with a pair of tweezers, but f*ck if I can figure out how to do that without messing it up further. One of the reasons I prefer grenadine finas (finer weave) as opposed to grossas (larger weave, which is what Kent sells) is that they are much less prone to snags.post #2835 of 44497/13/13 at 7:39pmI've been wanting to have a lighter navy odd jacket made up for a while now--a versatile staple in a mid-weight wool. Options would be soft shoulders, wide lapels, side vents, patch side pockets, welted chest pocket, and half lined. Fabric would be a pick-and-pick, either TR7121 or AR0021.
Now, I'm thinking I'll just have it made up as a suit with the option of wearing the jacket separately as a sport coat. Essentially, I'd have the jacket made up just as described above (my ideal sport coat), but I'd also order matching trousers. I know that it is generally frowned upon to wear a suit jacket as a sport coat, but that's usually when the jacket has a strict orphaned look to it, i.e. a smooth worsted wool, strong shoulders, flap pockets, etc.
I guess the only downsides would be that the suit would have a slightly casual nature given the patch pockets, but I actually wouldn't mind that. The other downside would be potentially different wear rates between the jacket and trousers, but I can't see myself wearing just the jacket often enough for disproportionate wear to be a concern.
Any thoughts on this? At this point, the only thing I'm not sure about is what buttons to go with. What would be appropriate for both a suit and an odd jacket? Light or mid brown? Dark brown horn? Mother of pearl?
