Fit of the items looks great though.
I agree with most of this but want to jump in on the general SF hate for polo-with-a-sport-coat that you mention. I think a worsted suity jacket with a shiny polyester golf polo is a baaad look and screams of Friday dress down day for an office nerd / middle manager on his way to the golf club for happy hour. In the workplace as a business casual outfit this rarely if ever works.
But accepting your objection to the two navies fighting each other with the PS as referee, I still have to say that when the polo-with-a-sport coat is done like this, in a totally non-office / business setting, I think it works well. Slim fitting trendy cut coat, relaxed and louchey polo, slim fitting chinos (definitely not Internet geek Best Buy Guy style) and vintage canvas sneaks make this a nice sporty looking after work / weekend outfit. I'm pretty sure I've done something similar and would definitely try it again. Well done Bigwig.
