I was being sarcastic. It's a nice jacket, but navy pants, formal white shirt and navy tie make the combination very suit-y. Why not light-gray or mid-gray flannels, tatterstall shirt, and burnt-orange foulard tie, for example, to really differentiate this outfit from a suit?
sarcasm detection fail on my part then
unfortunately i don't have any of those things you mentioned
i'm shopping around now for a good mid gray wool pants
i ordered and received a pair last week... but they are too baggy and not really what i was hoping so my search continues
i'm still working on building my wardrobe
