Long time lurker looking for a casual, everyday sports coat for wearing in classes, clubs, chilling, and potential meetings with esteemed adults. My 'style' right now is low-key and simple as I'm in Honolulu, where everything is laid back: fitted cotton shirts, cargos or plaid shorts, Vans slip-ons. I feel a nice sports coat would add spazz for nights out or suaveness for business-like conferences and interviews, to wear over a collar shirt or my usual cotton shirts. Something in vein of these:
I got this style from the LOST first season dvds where it's told that Damon Lindelof walked into an ABC meeting with a sports coat or blazer over a Star Wars shirt. I prefer the first jacket shown, as it seems the most casual. Thanks, I'm still noobish to fashion and style, but this boards have been a great guide.

Those are much too structured. Looks like it belongs to a suit.

Try something less structured for a more casual look.

But seriously, don't get "sportcoats" looks somewhat like orphaned suit jackets.

Odd buttons, patterns, textures and structure (or lack therof) make a sportscoat.

Given the pics he posted, something tells me that the OP is looking for something different than what you're looking for . . .

Then the thread title should be "Cool Orphaned Suit Jackets".

When I was younger I used to wear suit jackets with jeans. Hell, even striped jackets with jeans.

Revolve Clothing, Yoox. They should have plenty of options. Forget interviewing for anything like a typical office job in such a jacket. however.
