    I'm going to be traveling to Thailand in a couple of weeks to attend a wedding, and I was wondering what suggestions people had for a casual/business casual light jacket or coat that would work in the tropics, yet not look like I'm going on a safari? Looking for advice on fabrics to look for, styles of jacket/coat, etc.

    Since it's still winter, most of the stuff I've seen in stores right now seem like they're either too thick/too heavy, and when I do find a "light" jacket it's usually just a windbreaker.

    It's going to be hot. Very hot. Unless you really feel the need to wear a jacket (sport coat, odd jacket, blazer) just wear a nice shirt and pants and shoes. If you need/want to wear a jacket (etc) find an unlined cotton or linen jacket on Yoox.o

    Well, I want a light jacket or coat because there's a possibility that it might rain while I'm there.
