That looks very nice! I wore almost the exact same outfit last week, except for the square. Grey PoW linen jacket, lighter blue tie, pale blue shirt and chocolate duck canvas trousers.

Nope, sorry. I'm sure they wouldn't have been as nice as yours anyway, but I'll take some next time I'm wearing that particular combination.

pB - DC = washington DC, where rudals claims everyones jackets are too short.

I knew the square was going to raise some hackles, but I just didn´t feel like white linen today, which I wear nine days out of ten. And as Stitchy wrote, it's too formal for the colourful tie...

I've gone shooting and hiking with it, worn it more formally with a tie and more casually with jeans or chinos, and it all works very well.


Definitely keep it. I personally know it is a great coat.

I hadn't thought of wearing the jacket with a polo, which shows how versatile it is. You've all convinced me, so I just closed my SF and ebay listings.

Suggestions on how to pair this sportcoat would be welcome. I love the color and pattern, just have never had the inspiration on how to pair it, specifically shirt, tie, and pants.

It kind of has the same colours as my sportcoat from a distance. I'd say grey wool trousers and either a brown or grey tie.

I agree with YRR92. White linen hank in this combo would be a much crisper look. I like the tie and the jacket together, I like the jacket and the hank, I don't really care for the tie & hankie together.

The colors on my screen look a bit off but as Face of the Monkey says, I will use a light gray as one option. I didn't see from where you are from but those appear to be chinos, so maybe a cream or light brown trousers would be nice too. The shirt looks white in my monitor, I would use a shade of blue, pink and some other colors, I like, like green or brown. :D 

 

Great jacket BTW!

Meh...I think you might be too traditional for me, Brit sensibilities but not enough Italian 😀 These are my most comfortable fits/ cuts that both lengthen my stubby legs and have a nice close to the body fit on the sides/ under arms.

New Fuckin' Haircut

 

Brand New Coppley for Harry Rosen (thrifted) (I realize I need to lengthen sleeves, also too bad the wrinkles on the air, but dammit, it is worth it for a thrift)

Opted to go with a knit and pair it with similarly casual items (unstructured/unlined linen/silk jacket, OCBD, chambray pants and suede loafers).

Man, you have the best casual jackets. Any interest in gaining 50 lbs and selling all your jackets to me?
