    So I was walking around holt a few days ago and I came by a bunch of zegna mainline stuff. It was on for a very good price so I picked it all up, including this jacket. Now I really like the look and the fit of this, however I am not really sure what to do with it. If you gents could give me some advice on making an outfit with it and also where I might be in the right to wear it.

    Here is the jacket, its purple cashmere silk mix with black silk peeked lapels

    I only have a crummy Iphone for photos but here is another jacket I found on here with the same kind of fabric.

    thanks

    Tuxedo trousers. Try to match the silk covering the seams with the jacket lapels. Wear it for New Year's Eve.

    Nordstroms is selling flannel grey tuxedo trousers by samuelsohn. I would look their first.

    Grey flannel trousers are not tuxedo trousers. Get black or midnight blue.

    While flannel trousers are not tuxedo trousers, they might be an interesting contrast in texture to the jacket. But I think you would need something very dark, nearly black, for this to work well. Velvet might also be nice.

    not sure if midnight blue will go with purple, I am thinking a slim fit pair in black, however the white idea might work as well.
