    I thought I had added sufficient texture with the flannels I wore... I can most certainly combine with brown and/or green cords and moleskins. I'm no great fan of knit ties, although I do have a navy one. But I do have several cashmere ties which ought to combine just fine. The thing is, as Gdl notes below, that would all underline the fall feel, whereas I am trying to see whether I can get some "summer" use out of this coat.

    Ok. So let me run the jacket by you with navy cotton trousers. Still wearing a tie, so not as casual as the image you paint, but hopefully more summer-y.

    I'm not sure the pink shirt works with the jacket. I'm also not sure this can be a summer jacket.

    The tie is actually a J. Press grenadine, although the texture does not show up very well.

    EDIT -

    Another pic. The suit is a dark navy, not black, and it has subtle stripes on it. Iphone camera contrast blows.

    Needs a darker tie and different pants. Try mid grey pants, and a light blue solid shirt. Make suede shoes, dark brown or navy twill tie.

    Looks like a fall jacket so much - agree that I don't feel like it can operate as a summer. Outfit looks like you're stuck in between two wardrobes.

    No, it's a dark navy with subtle stripes. The iphone reverse camera has shitty contrast. The shirt is actually pink too.

    First post; I've been enjoying this thread a lot. Critique away, please. Suit is navy, not quite as dark as it appears here.
