    Gentlemen,

    I currently have the sport coat in a Holland and Sherry wool/cashmere pictured here (sorry, only photo I have of it on at the moment):

    Anyways, I like it quite a bit but after going over the website I've noticed the disdain for GP numbers as odd jackets and thought, well it would be nice to have the pants... So I emailed the tailor in question and they have just enough of the remaining fabric to make a pair. Now I'm curious what everyone thinks of the overall pattern (size, etc) and how they feel about the jacket on its own.

    I know I would wear the pants as separates and love it, I just now that I'd really have to look for an excuse to wear the full suit together. Would anyone consider it appropriate for a wedding..?

    I prefer the jacket on it's own @dako . It's not something I would wear to a wedding. I wouldn't want to stand out and take anything away from the bridge and groom. Jacket looks nice btw.

    Thank you. Yes, it is quite loud for a wedding. The question would be whether the pattern is loud enough to stand alone as a jacket.

    I would say yes, very much indeed.

    I currently wear it with olive, black (cardinal sin, right?), and charcoal trousers/chinos. Just had a pair of light blue and dark cream made. Any other suggestions?

    It might be appropriate for a country wedding in the UK, should such an opportunity occur.
