    Hello,

    could I get some information about this scarf?

    I don't know the model or date, or anything. All information are useful!

    Thank you.

    Hi @dghealy , a charcoal or black sport coat is not something anyone on here would recommend. If you're stuck with it, the best thing he could wear it with is light/medium grey trousers. Cheers.

    black is very severe and does not compliment many skin tones. It is too fashion forward for most business'. It looks horrible in daylight.

    Charcoal (as a sport coat) because it is notoriously challenging to match with anything else. Although a tweed herringbone jacket with charcoal grey or black in it is one of the most versatile things you can own (go figure).

    Charcoal makes a fine suit.

    The particular example you offer here exemplifies one of the potential problems, namely it looks more like an ‘orphaned’ suit coat than a sport coat. Not everyone is bothered by that, but many are.

    Cheers,

    I really want a linen or linen blend grey glen plaid with patch pockets to wear with white pants in the summer.
