For me, this fabric represents two problems. The first is that it is neither fish nor fowl, not bold enough for a patterned sportcoat but not sedate enough for a suit (unless you live on an English country estate). The second is that it is a grey sportcoat. For a grey odd jacket to work, it has to have a lot of surface interest (donegal) or be a loud pattern, like a grey/black large scale PoW. In that pic, other than wearing it with jeans (which I hate, sportcoat/jeans/dress shoes), what are you going to wear it with? Grey pants are out. You can wear brown, but it has to be a light color, maybe a cream flannel. Shirt has to also be a light blue or white, a medium blue would be too much. Basically, any outfit in which you wear that jacket, you could have easily worn something a lot better
