Would you wear this Kiton?

Would anyone wear this sportscoat?
I think it would look good paired with gray flannels and a different tie on someone with the right complexion and demeanor (not me, as it happens).

That looks really nice!! I've been thinking of adding a burnt orange jacket to my closet. I would definitely wear it. The description of size 40 seems off tho, the measurements sound better fitted to a size 44S

A resounding yes! I have an almost identical sportcoat from Saint Andrews in 100% cashmere that I wear with gray flannels in shades from medium to charcoal.

HELL YEAH! HOOK 'EM HORNS!

In all seriousness though, yes I would wear it. Honestly it's the sort of color that you would expect to have to wear in the form of some shitty 70s leisure suit- finding it in a Kiton is nice, because you have a solid fit and styling to anchor the somewhat garish hue.

Add a pair of New Standards and a white shirt, maybe a navy grenadine tie...

I bought a Kiton jacket from this seller before, also European size 51. Nice guy. The shoulder measurement was accurate, but the sleeves and coat length were about 1/2 inch shorter than described. I wonder if there was a problem converting centimeters to inches or something. I have no idea how he got the chest measurement, as the coat fit like the tagged size. The cashmere from this orange coat looks like a thick twill which would be great for fall.

I would wear it(once or twice a season) but I wouldn't buy it, unless as Edward Appleby suggests, I was a UT booster.

No, I couldn't pull that off. I think it is a nice cut and the material looks amazing. I would feel uncomfortable in that color , but I am fairly boring in my choices.

If you feel comfortable in the color , get it.

In Oklahoma, it would get me tarred and feathered.
Seriously, I can't wear orange because of my complexion.

It would look good for July 12th!

Seriously, it is a beautiful jacket and would well both dressed-up and with a nice pair of jeans on the weekend or at a club.

As a UT alumnus I must say that burnt orange is possibly the ugliest color in the world.
