I own a medium grey flannel chalk stripe with a wide lapel, and when I tried the coat on with jeans prior to purchase, a woman I was with commented on how good the coat looked with the dark denim (paired with a maroon gingham button down). I know, I know don't listen to women in regard to classic menswear. Can a chalk strip work as an odd jacket is the fabric is "rough" and or textured? To me his suit is very casual. Clearly a worsted suit coat would not work.
