no, no it is not. maybe for you, but i would not make that a universal statement by a long shot.
I mean, clearly different people have different magic numbers. Which is why you can't say that three isn't the magic number. It may be mrjester's magic number. It certainly isn't mine. Mine is, like, 10.
@mrjester 1013 and 1017 look pretty interesting to me, if you want something brown, and are good warm weather blends. 7725 if you want something blue. Soft construction and partially and any would be a nice addition.
I don't even have 3 sport coats, but I would definitely lean towards your number. I can think of 5 Navy(solid, herringbone, patterned one like mrjester, subtle pink windowpane, glenn plaid), 4 brown(herringbone, houndstooth, houndstooth w/ windowpane, glen plaid), Brown Cord SC, and a grey one I can't think of at the mo'.
If I had two navy, I'd definitely get this one next:
What pattern is this called?
Coincidentally, I would also have several suits in all of those Navy patterns. What do y'all think? Too many?
I like this idea for the next challenge, and giving people an extra week to really get creative. Stitchy hates it for some reason. Thoughts?
Agreed - I like this particular one as a standalone jacket and not a suit.
As far as shirt/tie choices to go underneath - keep it very light and summery, I assume? Like lightweight cotton shirt and linen tie?
In case any of you were wondering how the hidden BD looks with a tie. I think I'll make this collar my OneShirt collar.
LOL. Yes, I will agree that no one could say they know the universal number, but my personal recommendation would be that someone who has two blue sportcoats and none brown should go for brown.
Ugh. You won fair and square, kind of, so I have no gripes with you picking whatever challenge you wish, but I have no interest in seeing that run for two weeks. No h8.
But you were against the challenge idea before I decided two weeks.
Correct, I am against it, but I will not fight for you to change it, nor have I said in any of my posts that you should change it, because it is your right to pick whatever you want. But I will fight for it not to run for two weeks.

4258 for brown? Anybody? Bueller? It's 45% linen.. kind of a winner for me.

I prefer 7728. The windowpane is bold and you can wear it with a lot of cotton/linen pants if that is what you are going for.
Things have slowed down a bit, so could I please squeeze in a question?
What do you think of one-button odd jackets/blazers? I’m not talking about dinner coats or evening wear. Here’s an example I like a lot from Huntsman:
Here it is on their website:
The geometry of the jacket is pretty much like a two-button jacket but with the lower button (and the corresponding button hole, of course) removed. To my eye it’s just a slightly more dressy/formal look, appropriate if that’s what you’re going for. But as some of you may know, I’ve got a soft spot for British style.
So, would you wear a one-button jacket? Do you see other people wearing them in your part of the world?
Looks good to me. Connoisseurs will know it's Huntsman, or at least expensive British tailoring, but it's a very nice jacket. Having said that, I wouldn't pay 2 grand for an OTR jacket. Plenty of tailors can make a beautiful bespoke one button jacket for that kind of money.
