    I recently bought a suit on Ebay (that I will re-sell) and the seller included a note saying a sport coat that she listed didn't sell, so she included it in my order.

    Nice, right? The only trouble is, it's a Dark/Forest Green color (made by Haggar). What do you guys think of a jacket this color? It seems to fit, except for the sleeves which are a bit short.

    I know from selling on Ebay that sport coats/blazers tend not to sell very well. What should I do with it?

    I say rock the green jacket. If done right then it can look great.

    Wear it out... find gullible women and tell them your name is Tiger Woods.

    Wear with light trousers, anything from white to light grey - after all, you did win the 2008 Masters (no one is going to remember Trevor Immelman)

    I would make it work. I will start my hunt for a forest green blazer this fall.

    You can wear it with some khaki color slacks and brown shoes [​IMG]
