Even though the jacket is my favorite, anyone has an idea how to make it acceptable? If not, I will probably put them on bay.
I made the mistake of buying a charcoal blazer once. Now even I see it and think "orphaned suit jacket." I generally pair it with some really subtle herringbone light brown wool trousers and I think it looks alright.
That that jacket has stripes makes it a bit more difficult. I have another jacket which I suspect was originally a suit jacket (bought from the sale rack at Banana Republic) with very faint blue and orange stitch striping (making that term up...but the stripes are a single thread wide and dashed as opposed to solid) that doesn't get worn anymore.
I knew you were a big ole softy at heart, regardless of your custom title.
It's your jacket. Do what you want with it. However it really does look like a suit jacket that lost it's trousers. There is no way to make it look acceptable from my standpoint because you can't change the pattern, and pinstripes almost always mean suit. I've seen you try to make this jacket work before and it just isn't happening. Just get yourself a nice sport coat.
That shirt is not one to wear with a tie. That tie = white or light blue shirt, navy blazer, light tan trousers, booze, summertime.
EDIT: Trousers could be linen. Drink should be G&T.
