    It doesn't matter in this case. It is a solid navy jacket. There is nothing preventing it from being worn as a blazer. I have to respectfully disagree with EL72 when on this:

    All the top makes sell blazers in flat worsted or gabardine cloth, which are also used as suiting cloth. And there is no significant differences in cut. So change the buttons and you have a blazer, or don't change them (I like dark buttons or horn buttons personally) and you also have a blazer.

    Good ol' Thom. That keyhole on the lapel really says classic Americana.

    Gorgeous Brioni dinner jacket. No trousers, unfortunately...

    Now that would cause an uncomfortable situation.

    This suit has been on ebay for months now. Interesting, though I couldnt really get past the cotton bit, it'd crease like mad I'd expect.

    That suit is also not a 40, otherwise I would've bought it. It is about 1-1.5 inches to big in the shoulder and 1-2 inches too big in the chest to be a 40. The pants are also supposed to be a 34 waist. That suit is in a weird place between 40-42.

    Nice RLPL quality, and I do like Hacking jackets in general.

    But what occasion would call for a Black Velvet Hacking Jacket?

    I think most people would consider it a styling flourish. Most probably have no idea what a hacking jacket is. I would say that it is probably fine for non-formal evening wear.

    This baby will go high. If you like Vintage overcoats, it doesn't get any better than an Oxxford King's Vicuna:

    BTW: kitonbrioni, don't you collect vintage vicuna overcoats? Where other than Ebay do you get them?

    Beautiful coat, but the shoulder measurement is more like a 40(L) than 42-44. Do you think it's just a careless and/or busy seller?

    I think he's careless and doesn't know clothes. I emailed him about condition and he emailed back immediately. I think he just took a haphazard measurement.
