    I dig the patterned linen but the jacket is a bit short for my taste and the lapels are tiny. Too GQ looking. Anyway, if it were me the first thing I would do is replace the buttons with MOP, then I'd get a cream colored pair of chinos and wear the crap out of it in summer if this is a jacket you like.

    Thanks caustic man. I see what you mean about the length it is slightly shorter than usual jackets but it seems like the target audience is the younger male. I'm 19 and can't help but buy it lol. Just got to start saving!! I'm liking the idea of the cream coloured chinos and MOP buttons :)

    That's why I caveated what I said. That style of jacket will not get a lot of love here, but I understand that there are some contexts in which it would be more appropriate. For instance someone who is 19 rather than someone who is in his 30s like me lol. Anyway, if you have your mind set on this then enjoy.

    That's a very fashion forward sportcoat and more importantly than the color of the pants you are wearing with it, is the fit/cut. They should be equally skinny/short ideally. Slim jeans would be good with it, black or indigo. You don't want to wear dockers type pants with this.
