What's the difference between a sport coat and a suit coat?

post #1 of 3

If I'm at a brick & mortar, the "suit" coat comes with matching pants. In general, sportcoats seem to be woven from coarser material.

However - on ebay, I see many "sport coats" that really look like orphaned suit coats.

What technically makes a coat a "sport coat" and not the top half of a suit?
