- it has cloth of a very strong texture, e.g. a fluffy herringbone or a donegal tweed; there are such suits, but unusual, largely because, as above, the trousers won't keep any shape

 

- it has a very large or bold pattern; exceptions are found, especially as windowpanes are in vogue on all the style blogs, but you're still unlikely to see a gunclub check suit

.....

Based on above markers, the following jacket might be an odd jacket: thicker, fuzzy fabric and windowpane pattern. I am still not entirely sure though (still strikes me as a possible orphan). I do however feel that, even if this might be an orphan, it is not too obvious and therefore can be worn as an odd jacket. Anyone care to chip in his 2 cents?

 

PS: Sorry for the repetitive questions on odd jackets. I still find it hard to see the difference on lots of occasions

"Cool Wool garments are manufactured from lightweight Merino wool fabrics with a maximum weight of 190 g/m² and a maximum mean wool fibre diameter of 22.5 micron. The fabric/garment surface is clean and smooth. Cool Wool Fabrics and garments carrying the Woolmark are normally 100 per cent Pure New Wool but can include blends of wool with fine animal fibres. For fabrics and garments where wool is blended with other natural fibres (cellulosic or silk), the Cool Wool label is used in conjunction with the Woolmark Blend logo. The inclusion of elastane-type filaments to impart stretch characteristics to the fabric is permitted."

With this weight are they suitable for Winter?

Wear it with pride. You're a student, and young, and the jacket is very fashionable right now. When you're a professional, you can worry about classic styling. Until then, this jacket is young and fresh.

No, for winter you generally want twice that weight.  Cool Wool is not something for cool weather, it's something to keep you cool in warm weather.  400g wool is fairly decent for suiting material, although I'd want to go on the heavier side of that because it drapes better, makes for less wrinkles, and has more durability.

I guess I would ask where. Winter in California, sure. Winter in Chicago, probably not.

@punit12 If you have the funds, and I mean if you are doing well with some great pt job/your parents will pay for it/you're selling your Ritalin prescriptions, you could go up a size and have it altered by a tailor. But, really only if you have money to blow on that. If you would have to give something else up, or feel worried about money, or ptherwise have to try to find the money in any way, just wear it as is. If it came down to alterations or beer, choosebeer. It's not perfect, but it's not awful, either. It's close enough for jazz.

As veremund says, the jacket is fashionable, and, if you find it a little tight, wear it unbuttoned.

190g is very light for a suit fabric - roughly 7.5oz in alternative speak.  Any lighter and it's a shirt!

 

I'd actually be interested to know how it drapes if you ever get any.  I live in a year round hot climate and I'm always on the lookout for a good light cloth to give to the tailor.

I'm not buying it but YOOX has a lot of these suits. BTW, buttoned cuffs means that the jacket has functional buttons?

I agree. If you are wearing that around the university and going out at night, you'll be fine. Once you get a job and need to dress professionally, you can worry about getting a perfect fit. While I do think the jacket is too short, young people such as yourself look a lot better in short jackets than oldies like me. It is indeed a good color.

Hey all, I'm considering buying a pair of boots like these and wearing them with dark slim jeans. Are these too "hipster"? If so what would be a more traditional alternative? Thanks!:)
