Would this pattern make for a nice sport coat? Too busy?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of having a sport jacket made custom in this pattern with a pair of slacks matching the blue in the sport coat. I'm thinking keep it simple... A nice white dress shirt with a simple non attention grabbing pattern. I'm just wondering if the jacket is too much. My thinking is the navy tones it down a bit. Another possible dress option may be the sport coat with dark jeans and a little blue dress shirt. Thank you for your feedback. [IMG]

P.S. I am 5'9", 160 lbs. I do not want a jacket that makes me look smaller than I am. Thanks.

Yes, unless you have the personality to carry loud designs.

That jacket would be terrible with blue pants. Light gray.

That jacket would be terrible with any pants.

I would not buy that fabric. Much too hard to wear.

I appreciate everyone's feedback. It is certainly a challenging piece. The jacket would need to be matched very carefully and fit like a glove.

You are correct. It crys out for a sarong!
