    I would be very pleased to receive your opinion on the following jacket for business purposes. I currently work for a fortune 50 company and hold a top end middle management position (2 steps below the COO). I have all of my primary colors in suits, therefore, I am considering ventoring out a little bit.

    Could you please provide your opinion if you believe this jacwket ould be appropiate or would I be too adventerous for business.
    It is a Kiton Cashmere jacket.

    Another thread with zero views....

    No to a jacket like that. Much too pink (which might be the hardest color to successfully wear in a jacket). For a large windowpane to be okay in a typical workplace, it has to be subtle (low-contrast), like navy-on-medium-gray.

    Far too bold and "out there" for your line of work.

    Yeah, terrible business wear. And I'm not sure I would even approve of it for casual wear.

    OP, do you have any Prince of Wales or Deco patterned clothing? That's a way of branching out from solids and stripes without venturing too far and making it inappropriate for your job.

    No, I do not. I will research their patterns and make an informed decision.
