greys in flannel, donegal, brushed cotton-moleskin or  corduroy at a pinch for cooler months.

 

greys in lite flannels, fresco or other open rough plain weaves for warmer months

 

 

No smooth worsteds.

I love how graphic it is. The colors. That the coat is apparently a single layer of fabric and the lapel folds over to reveal the reverse of the pattern. The length. The way the lapel rolls almost to the bottom of the coat.

You've sold me on the cut. It's the pattern I don't love.

 

Of the recent ones on that site I love this

 

I mean where do they get cloth like that? So awsm.

And just to show that it's not just the model, here's Beppe in a cool raglan sleeve.

1 over 1a. 1a looks a little yellow. 3 may be a little too dark (for my tastes...though it is certainly not bad). The weave of 6 looks bizarre. The rest are good with 4 and 10 bring excellent. 7 as well had it been lighter.

I think the original jacket SB posted is cool. But I dig funky looks even if I don't wear them.

IIRC, Clags, your mother is a fan of more modern clothing, yes?

#6 and #7 look like the same weave to me.  

 

Jfrater we can't tell much just from pics.  You haven't mentioned the cloth or the weight,but you're on the right track with Fresco, plain weaves, donegals and flannels

Call me crazy, but I see little use for three season odd trousers. I get it for suits, but there are so many good options for seasonal odd jackets and trousers that I don't see why one wouldn't stick to the seasonal options.

Limited closet space?

Seams less an issue for trousers than suits and jackets. I suppose it's possible, but I'd prefer a seasonal wardrobe even if I only had 8-10 pairs of trousers. If I didn't have that much room, I'd probably also only own a couple suits and sport coats.
