Whelp, it IS an orphaned suit jacket (in the sense that it has matching pants). But I think the patch pockets make it versatile enough to wear as an SC without raising too many eye brows. I had it made with this function in mind. The fabric could be a bit rougher, but it isn't super worsted (is "worsted" binary or can it be talked about in terms of extent?).
CP, that's got to be my favorite bow tie of yours.
I think they're saying that it looks orphaned because of the buttons as well, no?
I quite like it although I might be the patron saint of orphaned jackets.
