They seem to get discussed quite a bit on here but what's the general consensus?
Can they be made to work or is this a next-level no no?

Inspired by some of the looks on WAYWRN I've scored a couple of jackets at great prices on eBay, but as I doubt I'll ever want to go for broadcheck windowpane type SCs I tend to lean towards solids or micro check patterns, which might put me in borderline orphan territory. Immprepared tonchange the buttons to break the look up but just wondered what the SF opinion was. Fire away!

I think it´s another Usa vs. Europe style as I´ve been criticied a lot by never wearing the suit trousers, but on Europe I see it daily. Even the King does.

I ask now only the jacket.

Nice for me as I can find great orphaned deals on ebay.
