I recently purchased this jacket by Jean's Paul Gaultier. I love the color, fit, and styling of this jacket, but I need help finishing off the outift.

What will look good underneath? Button up? Button up w/ tie? Cardigan? V-neck T-shirt???
What bottoms will look good? Pants? Jeans? Light? Dark? Gray? Brown?
What type of shoes will look good? What color?

At this point, I am totally clueless and would appreciate any direction. Thank you.

I would probably do a light pink shirt, charcoal/dark pink tie (with some sort of pocket square that works well with either shirt or tie), and a different shade of charcoal for pants.

First, shorten those sleeves, they are way too long. Next, purchase an ascot, shirt, and cane. After that, wear the ascot and shirt with the jacket. When people tell you you look pretentious, hit them with the cane.

I think that's a stock pick. Although to the TS, make sure not to button it like you're a girl.

The shoulders are pretty nice, as is the gorge. Just be sure to button it properly.
