    So I guess I'm looking for suggestions on...
    Shirt Color
    Tie
    Pocket Square (if one)
    and Pants

    Or you can just tell me you hate the jacket [​IMG]

    Grey/charcoal is easy and a no brainer.
    Tan/camel/khaki or dark brown as a 2nd

    I like it. And it reminds me of a Vintage 100% Cashmere coat that I have. The thin lapels are either very much like a current Thom Browne look, or they are vintage. And the fabric looks like Cashmere and a heavier weight.

    Is the coat Vintage, and Cashmere?

    BTW: Personally, I wouldn't wear it with a tie. I would favor Brown or Black pants, and a mock turtle top in a lighter color.

    It's vintage, but actually wool. I'm guessing it's from the 60's.
