Looks like a very solid look...but hard to get a grasp on the fit from the pics.

This is my single biggest pet peeve about jackets. Cannot stand space between the edge of the lapel and the pocket.

What if you wear a large size, like a 46 or 48 or bigger? You'd have to have 6 inch wide lapels to get some overlap.

I wish I could figure out taking a full-length... I guess I should break down and set up my tripod.

 

This jacket is kind of a slate-ish charcoal blue (shirt stripe is purple). I started a thread about what to change the buttons to (currently, they're navy plastic), and I'm leaning towards silver or MOP. Any thoughts?

 

 

With khakis and brown suede chukkas. I know this picture doesn't allow for much fit feedback, but any thoughts on the combination are welcome.

That shouldn't happen on a properly cut jacket. Everything would scale accordingly.

How grey is that jacket? As a blue jacket, it's perfect fine. But grey? With khakis? That's no good. Anyway, no matter the exact color, I would not wear this jacket with khakis on the grounds that the finish is far too refined for pants so rough and casual.

For buttons, go with brown horn, not silver or MOP. Far more versatile and unrestricted by season.

It's right down the middle between gray and blue -- I'd say the picture is pretty accurate as far as the color goes, though I had to mess with it on the computer because the light in this room is a mixture of tungsten and flourescent.

 

Are you categorically opposed to gray jackets with khaki trousers? Even gray tweed? I can see where you're coming from in terms of the textures, though it doesn't bug me much.

 

Would brown horn be enough contrast? My concern is that the jacket lacks enough detailing to separate it from an orphaned suit jacket -- and I'd like to make it work, since I don't have much to spend and this fits well.

 

Thanks very much -- I've been defaulting to cream silk when I don't know what square to wear, thanks (I think) to a post of yours in the good taste thread.

If you are limited to that jacket, then definitely go with horn over the others. You want to make the most use out of what you've got. MOP really only makes sense in spring and summer, and either MOP or silver will make it much more conspicuous that you're wearing the same jacket again and again. They are also much more casual.

Part of the reason you should stay away from khakis is precisely to make it less apparent the jacket is orphaned from a suit. Paired with pants so casual and rough-and-tumble, the jacket is even more slick and smooth in contrast.
