    Would a pair of 77% cotton and 23% linen trousers work with a unlined sportcoat in washed cotton? Not only would it work, would it look good? In terms of texture and so forth.

    Pictures of said texture might be helpful. In a vacuum, what you propose sounds fine, but it would depend on the particular items.

    There are far too many factors to consider without seeing how it is being put together...

    The fabric seems so casual to me that you could only pair with something like a tweed or more casual fabric.

    bump

    Just wondering if the collar will stand too erect or have a nice roll with the stays.
    Any other recommendations for collar stays from 'X Y Z'?

    New?

    They used to show up here crazy cheap, but they've been steadily increasing over the last year or so. $100 seems decent for wool and new.

    Picked up a black Kiton jacket, and while I know It's not a recommend shade/color, it was a great price and fit like a dream. My question is regarding buttons, what color and type of buttons work for an odd black jacket?

    Yes, you should never have an untucked shirt.
