    Its a linen blend, and I had planned it as a casual friday sportcoat during the summer.

    I'm a bit worried about versatility. I like it, but I'm a bit worried about the structured shoulder and also good things to wear it with.

    thanks all.

    Not a huge fan of the structured shoulder and the buttoning point seems high to me (or maybe those are low rise trousers), but otherwise it seems like a normal linen blend odd jacket. I imagine that it would be very versatile IF you like how the shoulder feels. If you don't like the feel of it, you'll never wear it and then it's not versatile. Cream, tan, light grey would work well as trouser colors and most shirts should work fine with it.

    I don't like the fit, but it would go great with a nice pair of black oxfords.

    Maybe it's a little short. What was PG's advice again? [​IMG]

    It looks good. It would look better combined with nicer light grey trousers (something a bit more crisp but still lightweight) than those more casual khaki pants. From there you can go with brown, burgundy or black leathers.

    It looks a little short to me. When buying a jacket I suggest always following the maxim of Jack Reacher "A good coat is like a good wingman. It covers your ass."

    It's short, but I like everything else about it, and have been looking for something similar. Where is it from?
