Well that looks gray on my screen too. lol

Lots of variables, Seb.  While CM and Clags are right that this isn't a particularly versatile jacket, I like it quite a bit, especially if you foresee growing your wardrobe to include at least 5-6 sport coats, you don't need to dress particularly conservatively, and/or you're into more of a country/rustic menswear aesthetic.  Pingson, Anden, and Cleav both wear jackets like this as part of large wardrobe rotations, and they do it well. 

 

Clags' more important point, IMHO, is fit: don't buy a jacket for pattern alone unless you either know the fit (and like it) or can return it with minimal hassle.  I've learned that lesson a few times too many.

Thanks @heldentenor, very kind of you to say so

@sebastian mcfox , my nearest to that is this. I love it.



Can't quite work out whether yours has the depth of colour? The blue in mine helps me a lot.

Need some fit advice on a lot of stuff. I don't think any piece fits perfectly, but which ones might work with a little tailoring?

We're laughing at you because you had the POW sitting in your closet for a month without trying on the pants and could have been wearing it already, but due to delays will barely get to wear. Flannel is great outside of the summer. As for Murl's suit, look at it this way. You are getting a staple suit for 50% off than you can wear for 2/3 of the year.

Huh? 50%?!

I would not take advantage of him like that!

It's not taking advantage of someone when they offer, dum dum.

I am still appreciative of the Glenn Plaid you offered! :slayer:

Friends,

 

My main project this year is getting some odd jackets made (well, and a summer suit, but that's a different post).

 

I would very much appreciate your Good-natured Advice (™) on what sort of buttons to get to go with the following fabrics.

 

(1)  Blue tweed

(2)  Green tweed

(3)  Blue linen

Patch hip pockets on all three; patch breast pocket on the linen (uncertain about the two tweeds).

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Cheers,

 

Ac

The blue tweed seems like it would be better for the cold weather. Hard to tell from the pic. 

The green tweed looks nice.

The blue linen is a  no brainer. 

Note to Noodles: Read before you respond, idiot!

Thanks everyone for the advice. Here's a link to the item: http://www.costumelimite.com/shop/uncategorized/tom-ford-sport-coat-size-48-38r-6/. I have heard good things about Samuel's customer service, which eased my mind about returns etc. But it would certainly still be a pain to get a refund if it doesn't fit - and I'm going mostly by measurements, so perhaps I should pass on this one.

Smoked mother of pearl on the blue linen.

Love he blue tweed and the linen, not crazy about the green tweed. I would go light brown horn on the tweed and cream MOP on the linen.
