Hi there! I'm going to a wedding this weekend, and was able to pick up a (to me) really nice pair of wool very light grey windowpane slacks. I am going to pair them with walnut shoes (AE Strands for reference) and a matching belt.

Not worried about the shirt / tie, but I am at a loss as to what jacket to wear. I'll buy something new if need be -- but I don't really know where to start? The wedding isn't super formal - which is why I'm not wearing a suit in the first place.

Thanks,

Blake

A solid color sportcoat is your best bet with those trousers. Navy is the easy choice.
