One SB and one DB blazer. The rest have horn or MoP buttons: flannels, frescos, hopsacks, cashmeres, camel hair, linen, cotton, etc. Some are fully lined, others half, and one a fresco with no lining even in the sleeves. I live in a a four season climate... as does the OP. A jacket apt for the climate and light of one season is less so in another.

Denial ain't just a river in Egypt. That's like me justifying why I have so many tweed trou.

Along a similar line to Vox/F.C.: I think there's a distinct difference between owning many similar items (the OnePalette, if you will) and literally buying duplicate versions of the same exact item. I'm more for the former, putting the latter in the unimaginative/robotic/uniform category. For example, I have 8 navy odd jackets but each is different to me. Some are cotton or linen and summer only; some are light wool; some are heavy flannel; some SB some DB; etc. But all are "blue sport coats". To me they are all different--as they are probably to many of you; but you are enthusiasts. To the general public, they are all virtually identical.

I have a very light grey Kiton cashmere herringbone which I wear with the mid grey flannels and a Caruso black and light grey Shepherd's check which I wear with the darker flannels.
The others are a navy wool/cashmere La Vera Sartoria Napoletana jacket, worn with both mid grey and charcoal flannels and a wool/cashmere LVSN herringbone in a light brown worn with the charcoal pants.

My summer pants, bone cotton, are worn with a LVSN navy cotton jacket, a denim blue coloured Attolini linen/cotton and a linen brown/olive Oxxford , about which I am really intrigued.
It is soft, has totally unpadded shoulders, is unlined and for all intents and purposes looks like a Kiton or a Borrelli. No lapping or shirring at the shoulders but they are very natural.
Did Oxxford have a Naples cut some time back??

Are you getting a Nehru jacket next?
You could also get a solid navy jacket from each of the Savile Row houses and each of the Italian tailors, just so you can have a decent variation in cut.

I got the cloth in. It is lighter in color than expected, but I am moving forward with the project anyway.

My guess is a mid-gray flannel (12/13 oz), Smiths or Lesser.
