In general jackets for the daytime look much less out of place at night than vice versa, if only because people go out after work without time to change quite frequently, and it's much better to be dressed appropriately for work and "inappropriately" for going out later than the other way around. But still, a peak lapeled mohair blend jacket would look quite nice in the evening, and an improvement over the 520 fresco jacket I think.
I wouldn't recommend such a jacket as someone's second or third odd jacket. But if they already have a diverse wardrobe of a dozen or so? It merits consideration. I have a peak-lapeled single button velvet jacket - I wear it only in the evening of course, but it gets plenty of use, and I'm happy to wear something in the evening that isn't officewear.
