To me his suit is very casual.  Clearly a worsted suit coat would not work.

I see way too many striped SC on sale(possibly orphaned suit jacket). I have been tempted. But I say no !

I personally have a gucci sport coat that is pinstriped, and even the tag says "Jacket," indicating it's not part of a suit. Although this could be an orphaned suit jacket, I've seem some listing for a Luciano Barbera sport coat with stripes on B/S. Also, I went into a zegna store today, and they seemed to be showcasing this patch pocket, thick striped navy sport coat. Definitely a sport coat and not part of a suit. Thoughts?

 

 

I'm curious to know how you came to this conclusion. I've never worn a stiped suit jacket without the matching pants, but it could be done well. Almost anything can.

I find it strange to get striped  sport coat as I prefer tweeds or just the solid ones.
