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

On the contrary, you now have 2 incomes, more to spend on clothes.

Is this your first grenadine? They are nice--my favorite ties. Burgundy is a great choice. At 57" though, Kent's are sadly a few inches too short for me.

I have the same one... just snagged it yesterday.

Yep. I I have other silk knits, but this is my first grenadine. Navy is next month.

It was seriously my first time about to wear it out of the house.

 

Let me rephrase, 

 

IT ONLY CROSSED MY DOORWAY ONCE. ON THE WAY IN. IN A BOX. 

I guess. it will leave in a box, too. RIP.

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.

I'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?
