A traditional sport jacket usually possesses four features - casual fabrics such as cotton, seersucker, linen or tweed, casual patterns such as windowpane, notch lapels, horn buttons (metal being more of a blazer thing and buttons matching fabric being more of a suit thing) and the optional patch pockets. (your grey jacket has flap pockets and the navy has besom)

 

So if we're really counting, these are strictly orphaned suit jackets and should not be used as sport jackets - but then again in the streets we now walk on nobody gives a crap, it's just not the most flattering choice to wear without matching pants. But then again I often wear my wide peak lapeled suit jackets with other dress pants so I'm not the one to talk.

 

I don't mind the skinny lapels if you've the build for it - which no one should have when it's at 2.36 but that's your preference. 

 

ps this is a pretty safe look for a sports jacket

I cannot thank you enough for your help!! :)

The bolded part, coming through slightly less obviously, is why you rubbed me the wrong way. I suspect there's actually something wrong with you, if you can't figure out what clothes to wear without being told. Ignore me, report me, or whatever. You're a low post count weirdo, so my life will remain unchanged.

Is it so wrong that I wanted an advice? So, this is what it is about. You can't accept people who don't know a lot about fashion and want to learn from others' opinions.

 

And for some reason, you continue this offensive behaviour. Now, you went the next step and started calling me names. That's nice. Do you feel proud for trolling random people on the Internet? I've been nothing but nice to you. It's so rare to encounter cyber-trolls, so please, excuse my curiosity.

I hope you're less obtuse in real life, but I doubt it.

I must apologise for being unable to meet your criteria about fashion. People may have different opinions in the future, so start stating your own opinions in a more polite way. And not making offensive jokes like you are a 12 years old kid. Seriously, this is the only way I could justify this behaviour of yours. I am afraid to think that you are an adult. It would not compliment you.

 

So, keep trolling.. That's the only thing you are good around here, I suppose.

The internet is filled with self important people like you. This isn't my first rodeo.

I bet it isn't. I can't be the only one who you felt like insulting in every possible way today. You must do this as a hobby, I guess.

Actually, I view this back and forth as more of a pet project rather than a hobby. Perhaps you will get offended by my associating you with a domesticated animal. In any case, I'll allow you the last word, which surely you feel entitled to. ffffuuuu.gif

I gave you a chance to explain yourself. Do you know why? Because English is not my native language and because I don't know you, so I had doubt what was the meaning of your post.

 

You ignored that by saying that I am not God of the Internet, which I do not think I implied that in any way. Anyone can report anyone, in case you didn't know. lol

 

If you were joking, you could just say it. But it seemed like you just had a bad day and you had the need to troll a random member.

 

So, I am still unsure if you were joking, because if you were there would be no need for insulting me later on. You seemed like a sociopath and I don't say that in the same way you said that I seem like a domesticated animal to you. I truly believed it.

 

I am not a sociopath though. I felt insulted, but if you tell me that all that was just a joke, I will apologise to you for all this. The choice is yours.

I don't know whether they're blake welted or not, but I can get them for roughly $250.

Those look solid.

Do you think that a jacket in that colour would be more suitable as a sport jacket in comparison with the navy one I shared?

It's perfectly acceptable to do so.

Dude, you're making me crack up. This whole post reminded me of how I was when I first got on here several years ago. Thanks for the laugh.

Meh, so and so, the colours usually don't matter as much as other features. this is somewhat less formal but either's fine.

either I said something wildly wrong or my humour escapes me...

If tux shawl lapel is around 2.50 inches wide, is it appropriate or should I look for a tux with a bigger one or one with peak lapels?
