My vote would be for that blue. Actually, I saw something very similar by Uncle Ralphie's chicago store early last year (RL PL line). However his version was in DB with patch pockets (Raf Blue) plus sports back! Very soft cut, minimal padding and quite refined. I saw that and wow... it was like someone made a RTW of one my favorites design of odd jackets. They offered matching pants with it also but I passed. However, it was a bit much to pass on the jacket so I placed an MTM order.
I think the breast pocket in that is welt but then again its a DB with sports back...
I think yours look great! What are your thoughts on same thing in navy flannel. If it any consolation, GQ offered something sort of similar in one of their recent issues. They called it the ultimate summer versatile suit or something. It was in 'requisite' black, fabric was cotton without any patch pockets or other who-ha.
BTW what is all this CBD / OBCD or whatever stuff? Am I missing something?
