    I'm guessing it's probably quite slim & short. I would think there are two main ways to wear it (and both would be nighttime rather than daytime looks): either with a smart white shirt in a nice cotton or silk fabric (no tie) or with a slim - and probably predominantly black/white/grey - solid or graphic t-shirt. Both would probably need slim black trousers (or maybe black jeans). However, that night-out kind of look is very, very,very far from what I wear myself, so take my opinion with a very large pinch of salt.

    I'd actually suggest asking the streetwear side of the board how to wear it; they may not necessarily like the jacket, but I bet they'd be more inventive than us (read: me) in terms of how to wear it well.

    PS I noticed you asked whether it's suitable for a wedding. My opinion: definitely not at the ceremony, but possibly for the reception/party (depending on what kind of wedding it is), if you have an opportunity to change between the two.

    I cannot find the first two firms (or tailors or whatever they are) via Google, and I was warned that the site of Monkey Face Apparel might damage my computer. Care to tell us more about these outfits?

    ummmm... they aren't tailors... those gentlemen are members of the forum and relatively frequent posters in the various fit threads.

    I'm not saying this to be offensive but if you've already decided to discount everyone else's opinion and only yours counts why are you asking for advice?

    FWIW I think it will look a little out of place at a wedding, maybe in a bar on a Saturday night but not for a wedding, as others have said a white shirt is probably your best bet. What do you intend to do about neckwear?

    My advice is pertaining to what coloured shirt to wear with it really!

    I'm not actually sure in terms of neck wear what do you think?

    Tie/no tie? Colour tie?

    You need the special Julius white tank top and Dior biker denim to rock this green blazer in full.

    Only other option for a green blazer is the golf shirt you just won the Masters in.

    THis jacket is quite... "different", some will feel it, some won't.
    I won't say I "love" (the way black and green is mixed is quite akward), but at least it's quite challenging.
    l actually can see an interesting outfit as follows
    - The green Jacket
    - a white shirt (maybe the contrast between the 'dark' colors of the jacket and the shirt would be too harsh, so l think a white and thin grey stripes shirt would work better)
    - grey slim wool or flannel (sepending of the weather) trousers
    - black socks (or if you're on the "risqué side", black and green patterned socks)
    - black chelsea boots
    To light up the outfit a little can accessorize with a little silver bracelet.
    Edit : if gou wanna go with a tie, either black or dark grey wiuld suit, l think..
    IMHO you'll be some Sexy Mothafucka! Give it a try bro !

    And, thus, style becomes pure masturbation.

    it's green and shiny and it's a sportscoat. and you're planning on wearing it to a wedding? Idunnoman. Maybe a Vegas bachelor party, but the wedding?

    um, I guess go with a white shirt, black slim shinyish pants, and some funky footwear like leapord print loafers. white puffed pocket square. Ie go big or go home fuk you look.


    you'll shake your head and laugh about this one day, trust me.
