    I bought this Richard James OTR unlined linen jacket today for a low price. It's totally unlike anything I have owned before, so I am not sure of the range of clothes I could wear this with. Could I be advised please?

    Also, I am quite happy to hear if it is a horrid item that I should swiftly return to the shop!

    I'm a fan of the jacket to be honest, and you can't g wrong with some off white/cream linen or linen/cotton trousers and loafers for a smart and casual vibe.

    What you're wearing looks good with it. It's a blue jacket...almost anything goes!

    Very nice.

    I would wear that with:

    cream or white trousers
    washed blue or optic white jeans
    light gray trousers

    A medium pink shirt would look good. The white shirt looks good. Pale blue solid would also work but be sure it is light enough to contrast with the blue of the jacket


    Try a mint green patterned pocket square. Or white linen.
