I just picked up this Canali "Exclusive Collection" sportcoat from eBay. It's 50% cashmere / 50% wool, double vented. I bought it for $299 plus $12 shipping - is it just my imagination, or did I get a great deal? I'm just waiting for the "Dude, that's the crappy, fused diffusion line!" posts...

What would most of you wear this with? Navy trousers, or perhaps Khaki or sand colored cotton or tan wool pants?

Light grey, charcoal, navy, tan, brown trousers - lots of options here.

I see myself wearing this with anything from mid-gray worsted trousers, to flannels, to a pair of navy cotton twill pants that I just picked up. I'm definitely open to other suggestions, though... Glad to hear this is a well-made coat. I certainly like the look, and according to the measurements, it should fit me quite well. Cheers

Great jacket and a very nice price. I'd wear virtually any color trousers with this that others have listed, but I'd favor grays, navy, tan, and browns. Colors I wouldn't wear are black or light blue (and the more fashion-forward colors like yellow or red that I don't wear anyway [red would probably work if you're bold enough]).
