I have an event this weekend for which a sportcoat and dress shirt (no tie) would be appropriate. I thought I had a sportcoat or two that might work; however, I've gotten a little larger around the middle than I care to admit and my sportcoats are too small. Since I don't intend to stay this size, I bought a relatively inexpensive sportcoat at Harold's today.It's tan and brown with hints of navy and burgandy. I thought a solid blue shirt would be a safe bet since shopping time is limited. I have two solid blues, one like this (but more of a baby blue) with a herringbone texture,...and another with a straight collar and a pinpoint weave (similar to this one).Are either of those shirts a good option? Does the herringbone pattern of the first shirt make it bit too formal for the tweed sportcoat? I tried on a blue OCBD, but just wasn't feeling it. Also, what color pants would you suggest?
