Is there anyway to wear this charcoal jacket as a sports coat with a pair of jeans/chinos? Or would it just look funny?

For jeans, it depends on the fit of the coat. With chinos, I'll have not go with no, *unless* you know what you're doing.

Not on a 3 button. I don't think I'd even try it on a 3 roll 2.

It could work with jeans. Lighter, beat up jeans. And a more interesting shirt. Say, burgandy.

Not the easiet piece to use, but it could be workable. As a rule, smooth charcoal fabric doesn't work well casually.
