Is that the Spurr jacket that was on b&s? If so, I seriously contemplated buying it several times. Double buttonholes were a deal breaker for me though.

I've worn it so many times this summer. Very please with it. double buttonhole is something I could do without but it's something I forgot about after a while. Only one of the holes is actually cut, so I'm not sure if that means I can have the stitching on the other removed. Not a big deal anyway.
To me, it seems to be on the same formality scale as sweater + pants + shoes, which constitutes the majority of this thread.
As to whether it fits into a casual classic menswear cannon, I don't know. What I will say is that I do read a lot of Will's stuff on asuitablewardrobe and other CM sources, and that helps me to put coherent combinations together. I draw a lot of inspiration from proponents of classic menswear, but I don't want the outcome to look classic or preppy or trad or anything like that.
and. the shoes are nice.
I like hendrix's fit, but the deliberately unironed shirt (which looks good in this context) places it comfortably inside SW&D. Most of the sweaters posted here are more formal than that shirt.
That being said, such fits being posted here is beneficial to this thread...the gray area between casual CM and conservative SW&D is a fun place for discussion.
