Really, aside from the blue blazer, brown is where it's at for SCs IMO. You're going casual already, go all the way.

As long as you make sure the grey SC has some texture, an interesting pattern or is made of a fabric not typically used for suits you'll be fine. Brown jackets certainly look great, but it can be harder to pull off for younger guys like myself, as it's not a typical color for people my age.

Algebra 2 final exam today. I had to abandon my jacket when I went around to collect books.  I hope none of the students mistook me for a cellphone salesman.  smile.gif

Second, what is all this business about grey sport coats being wack.  Again, I'd love to see a fail there as well.  Pairing a grey SC with grey slacks is silly, because the colors are too close.  Navy, beige and/or cream pants to name a few works well IMO.  If I get a minute I'll find some pics.  Ya'll crazy.  patch[1].gif

there is much craziness on SF. absolutes are too easily thrown about. as the discussion furthers, we can see that most agree there are applications for both, its just a metter of honing in on what they are.

I often don't wear a belt.  I feel belts should accessories not necessities.  In this situation, the waist on these pants is .5 to .75 inches too big.  The pants sit comfortably on my hips, but when I put on a belt the waistband bunches up around the waist.  I wanted to see if I could wear them without a belt all day.  After a day of wear, I've concluded I'd like to have the waist taken in some.

It's easier than you think, I think. Try dark brown cotton, for instance. All your light blue shirts will work beautifully with it.
This is coming from an old guy, though.

Picked up this Brioni DB jacket on the bay for $60 including shipping. My only DB, and I rather like the look.

i think it definitely can be hard to pair, and certainly should not be a first or second or third.... SC, but it depends on the jacket and what you are wearing with it. also, i think that group think already knocks it down a peg and peoples knee jerk is to dislike it.

for example, the gray herringbone jacket i posted with chinos a few weeks ago, i think is superb for summer casual tan/beige/blue chinos, and i think its pretty easy to use. this jacket however, is not easy at all to use. its a shade of gray that is not really light but also not really dark, making it hard to contrast against other gray trousers. but with the right brown trousers, i think it really would be great.

a darker gray SC however, or one with a large POW, are not necessarily all that had to use.

lastly, in all the applications ive used it in, i dont think any were flat bad, just not optimal for what one might want in a contrast. however, not all fits can be perfect, and i like the jackets style, so if that means when i wear it it may not be juuuust right with the trousers, thats worth it for me.

hackett makes some lovely grey smart jackets and if i am noob so be it :)

I actually think that's an excellent match. Maybe the best jacket to wear with navy pants, along with any shade of tan / maize
