^ The fact that they both seem to have some texture and patch pockets does help. Pingson is a well dressed guy, but I have trouble understanding the idea that grey odd jackets would be among one's most frequently worn. When I started my most recent wardrobe rebuild, I purchased a grey herringbone odd jacket in a lovely wool cashmere blend. I love the jacket (though I would have done patch pockets and notch lapels if I had it to do over) but struggle to make it work. Cream flannels are on my to acquire list at some point down the road and those work well with grey (of course one cannot wear cream flannels everyday without being overly conspicuous).
