I have seen black linen sports coats from Polo and other brands. Black linen exists, but I don't think it makes much sense.

I kinda like the idea. I'm thinking khakis and a mid-grey shirt of some kind would work well.

Huh? You're in Boston? (It's 22-degrees here in Maine.)

Anyway, I have a black linen suit. I wear it with gray suede wing-tips. I wear it with a grayish blue nubbley linen shirt, somewhat starched with the top two buttons undone. I am an old guy tho and I'm trying to picture this on me at 20-something or whatever you are. Yeah, I guess I can.

I was wondering whether you could wear a black jacket with khakis?

I live in Boston but I'm currently in South Africa, its hot here. I'm all about being different and trying new things. I'm trying to picture your grey suede wing-tips on black linen...
