Retro cool or just out of style?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Picked up this jacket at a thrift store. It is one of those striped sportscoats like the type that would have been worn at a college mixer back in 1958. I think it is kind of cool. My wife can't believe I'm serious. Thoughts?

Looks fine to me. I would wear it with something a little more edgy though. Maybe charcoal pants and a tee shirt or darker shirt.

Depends on what with it is worn.

I don't mind it at all. I don't know if I would wear it but I think it looks fine.

Looks kinda "Trad". Not a bad jacket IMO

I like it a lot, but I'm also a huge fan of purple. What is the fabric like? It looks kind of furry and heavy.....almost like flannel?

The jacket is fine, imo. And they look alright with the shirt and trousers in the picture. A nice pocket square is all you need!

I like the jacket.

I don't like that shirt on you, though.

the jacket has a rough, heavy look to it. choose a different shirt and pants accordingly.

Cool, but that shirt isn't working.

I think the jacket looks great...and to reiterate, the shirt and trouser need to be changed.

I like it! I'd pair it with a tee shirt and jeans or cords. By the way, Banana Republic has a nice collection of long-sleeve tee shirts in a variety of colours. My wife bought me several of them for Christmas.

Looks like a 3 button rolled to 2 sack jacket.

I dig it, very old school.

ditch that shirt, wear an oxford shirt with buttoned down collars instead.

Looks fine!

Good thing about a thrift shop, is that if you make a mistake, it's an inexpensive mistake!

If you wear this coat 2 or 3 times you've got your money's worth.
