How versatile is the double-breasted jacket below? Could I wear it with wool trousers and a tie/bowtie like the model in the picture for a wedding, and could I wear it in a more casual setting with a OCBD shirt/sweater/denim? Thanks!

True double breasted blazers are more difficult to dress down than single breasted versions, in my view.

But then again, I dislike virtually everything about that picture.

Depends on the fabric IMO.

Can vs. should. It can be worn with many items, but probably not with denim, due to similarity in color.

+1

But I'll give it a shot - light or mid grey trousers, light blue shirt, tasteful tie, brown shoes

That's a pretty conservative route to creating an outfit around it

Definitely, I wear double breasted with dark jeans and some double monks...linen and cotton blend make it easy to try it differently...
