I think a small black and white gingham sportcoat would be nice.

This example pictured also features patch pockets which may not work for everyone.
Beware of these balancing details and the intended use of the jacket when making decisions on purchases.

In my mind, the following two are true gingham sport coats. But yay, both to your houndstooth/gingham SC and these.

I think originally, gingham the material was cotton in checkered/plaid patterns, although gingham the pattern need not be just cotton (see above examples - they are wool/cashmere/silk blends in gingham pattern). I believe the terms are used to refer either (or both), depending on the context. The Cantarelli looks good, especially at that price point.
