Thanks OT. I was thinking about brown, but I would want something in a flannel as it's a fairly heavy wool. Thanks for the heads-up that they would honour the sale a day early, as well.

Enjoy your new SC - would love to see a pic when you get a chance.
I picked up a light grey Canali cashmere and hemp K jacket last year. I think its very important for a grey jacket to have real texture to work at all.
I wear mine for more casual occasions so great with jeans but also with brown trousers as OT pointed out. If you are going to do a solid knit with it then I would recomend a bolder shirt to break up all of the solids.
I'm glad you're covered my man. I agree with you about texture. I think this one may have a fine herringbone, but there is texture of some kind to the cloth. I may go back and see what they might have in matching trousers - I don't own jeans decent enough to pair with a jacket. The fit was really good and the price hard to ignore.
Anyway, here's a crappy phone pic of the Brioni. I grabbed a pair of heavy grey flannel trousers which I needed in any event and happen to work well with the SC.
