Morning, Styleforum. I need your help integrating a Charcoal hopsack sports coat (http://www.ctshirts.com/us/classic-fit-charcoal-lambswool-hopsack-jacket/SEF0095CHA42S.html) into my wardrobe for a Paris vacation this November. I'm looking to keep it at the 'street wear' formality level, likely with some Red Wing Iron Rangers boots or casual oxfords.
I tried pairing the jacket with dark blue jeans, a white button down, and the red wings, but I ended up looking like a cowboy. Which is not the look I'm going for as an américain in Paris. I ordered some dark grey jeans (Lucky Brand 410s in "Barrite Dark Wash") that I'm hoping tone down the cowboy look, but I won't know till I try them on.
Any suggestions on how I can get to make this jacket work?
If it helps, I'm of northern European descent so dirty blonde hair, blue eyes, and light skin.
