With a pattern like that, does it even matter?

The buttons edge it toward an odd jacket.

Looks like one of the older Polo silhouettes.

I DO like it. That's why I said it doesn't really matter.

Are the buttons metal or bone/horn?

I was thinking former, but am not sure on second look.

Look like horn to me. I love the hang-glider lapels, I actually just bought one in navy on ebay and it should come tomorrow. Going to see how I like it before I decide on this one.

P.S. Mack, when you start to recognize the silhouette you know you have been thrifting for too long.

I have a polo DB with the same cut in a tan gabardine, waiting for warm weather.

Yeah yours is probably from a suit, but wear it as you please.

I think I'm going to hold off for now.
