Navy chinos look really bad to me.

Hardly a must have, but well fitting and used appropriately they're nice.

I know this is typically something people should not due, but, what is the difference between a solid suit jacket and blazer/SC?  What is the different between a slight pattern (faint light overcheck) suit jacket then a blazer with the same pattern?

Buttons, typically.

And there is a long standing tradition of wearing an odd jacket with trousers. I like the practical aspect of it. Why throw away a good suit jacket just because the pants wore out? That said, the more sporty suit fabrics work best for this IMO.

So how would I know if my suit jacket would be able to be worn as a blazed also? Sorry for the vagueness of the question.

Can anyone tell me what the measurements are on a Fitzgerald sport coat 40R? I am looking for shoulder, waist (top button on a two button), sleeve length, and chest width.

Thanks!

The camel coat is definately very apropos right now, so if you try to stay trendy then you can't go wrong with camel.  However, most of the camel coats that I've seen this season are single-breasted, not double breasted, so if you are trying to be right on-par with the trend then you might want to skip this ebay coat.  If, on the other hand, you don't care THAT much about following current designers' whims regarding the number of buttons, then this looks like a good choice.

 

What is the price and label?  It definitely has a vintage mien, so you'll stand out in a discerning crowd.

I work at an office where men wear chinos/nice jeans/corduroys. My pants include tan/cream, olive and navy moleskins, medium grey flannels and sometimes medium dark jeans.
Thanks to all.



Seems to me that those shoes would go well with most of your pants and jeans.  Just don't wear them with anything extremely dark (like a navy that is almost black).

 

Are these Allen Edmonds?

Sorry for last post didn't attach pictures.
Still stuck between the too?

Either are nice. It kind of depends on what you already have, what you plan on wearing them for, and peoples' personal tastes.

Just bought a London Fogg overcoat. How long are the sleeves supposed to be?

And can I wear it with my casual attire?

Sleeves are supposed to be long enough to cover your suit jacket sleeves when wearing a suit over it.  Can you wear it with casual clothes?  Depending on how casual, but if you are wearing "smart casual/business casual" then yes you can.

 

Post a pic/link of the coat (so we can see the formality of it and give you better advice about wearing it casually or not)

It's more the fabric than the buttons (as you could always swap the buttons out). Suit fabrics tend to be more "refined", smoother, glossier, etc. It's sort of like pornography, you know one when you see it. There are some suit jackets that could pass as blazers, but they're fairly rare. Buttons are a good clue that a jacket is a orphan from a suit though.

Then again, the average man on the street would have absolutely no clue.

Well, it took me hours of effort (okay, 3 seconds googling "rubinacci pocket square"). Try http://www.marianorubinacci.net/eshop/product.php?id=543&lang=2

It's a neat pocket square, but at 70 Euros - call it about $94 - I probably won't be buying any.
