    Hello all,

    I really like the color and style of this jacket. Can anyone tell me where I can find a similar/the same one. Of course I would not wear it with the green cardigan.

    It looks like an orphaned suit coat to me.

    Um why? Looks like a high gorge 2 button sold color sports coat with a notch lapel... I don't see anything particularly 'suity' about it.

    Thanks.

    You think it was part of a suit and not really meant to be used with different pants? Is this color called charcoal?

    I think that it's an orphan(not that there's anything wrong with that) and It appears to have 3 buttons

    Looks like charcoal sharkskin, and looks like an orphaned suit coat to me.

    Everything you mention is "suity" -- hard-finished worsted in a single, dark color. That's definitely suiting cloth, not sport coat cloth.

    Anyway, that's pretty much the most basic suit there is and you should be able to find it anywhere.

    Single-breasted charcoal is pretty easy to find, but the sharkskin weave is certainly little less common these days.

    Noted, the 3rd buttonhole/button were hidden quite well in the shadow on my monitor. Had to change brightness settings to be sure they were there. Regardless, I don't quite understand why those things I mentioned equate to it being a suit. Someone can't simply wish to have a sports coat with those pretty much standard features?

    Sure, just as you could wear a black suit for work or a notch lapel on your dinner jacket but none of those three examples follow the conventions of dress (otherwise known as "the rules") to which most of us subscribe.

    Definately a suit coat.

    And he doesn't look good in it with the jeans.

    Regards

    Agreed. I'll go further and say it looks like the coat of a Ferragamo (Zegna-made) suit I bought five years ago.

    Can anyone identify the jeans?

    I actually like this outfit a lot (minus the tie).
