Probably not. I think my next move is going to be to check out an Eidos Napoli jacket. The local Haberdash in Chicago has them and they seem to be of good make and quality. I just need to see how they fit.

If this doesn't work out, I agree with your move to check out a blue herringbone or a blue textured SC. I was thinking grey but understand that they're not everyones cup of tea but I'd like to get a grey textured sc one day.
Brooks Brothers makes a charcoal herringbone in the Fitzgerald cut that gets knocked down to like $198 whenever it goes on sale. Just an FYI.
What about the NMWA Fox Flannel blue herringbone? Or trying to keep the cost lower than that?
