That is a beautiful play on a Black Watch tartan. When you first mentioned that you had a blazer in Black Watch I was not convinced that it would look anything but tacky.
Original Black Watch is not as washed-out/faded as this blazer and would be too bold (for me) to wear except maybe on a pair of "trews".
This is a great looking antique tartan. I think you could pull it off with med. grey wool pants or even that purple/blue found in the coat. I think solid black pants would be too stark for this.
When I say washed-out/faded I don't mean to insult the pattern..in fact I love it! - If you don't mind sharing- where did you pick it up?
Here comes the shocker. I've been trying to be pretty picky with what I get since I've been looking at them as investments. I took my girlfriend to Nordstrom Rack since she loves the swimwear and shoes there. I was walking around, not intent on buying anything. I walked past this on the discount rack (from $900 to (something scribbled out) to $400. The only thing that needs done is to shorten the sleeves .75".
It's also half lined. Half lined may be a negative to some, but not to me in Arizona. It's just Z Zegna but it's got everything I wanted in a blazer and I loved the pattern. Not so narrow lapels, 2 button, double vented, half lined, patch pockets, functional boutonniere.
Side note: I tried to purchase it yesterday and my card got declined (debit). I drove to the bank and asked why. Turns out, they ran my card six times. It was charged, refunded 3 times. It all got fixed and I picked it up today.
Really appreciate the comment.
