Thank you very much for the replies, I realize this is Random Fashion Thoughts and there's probably a better place to ask this, but I trust you dudes Here it is with black, (again, sorry for the sloppy fit, literally playing internet dress up at 2 in the morning) Is this acceptable in any way in a professional environment? Trying to make the best of this, because it is a very nice jacket for the price, just something I'd never wear casually Also, the pinstripes are very faint, do not contrast, and are more of a texture than a color, so it appears solid from a distance. FWIW, MC answers this question about 25x/week, and from what I've gathered, it's probably not gonna work. From a distance the jacket looks solid, but that just makes it look even more like an orphaned suit jacket (color, pattern, button color). The contrast with a black tie and black pants is really very striking, and just looks like a mistake. From up close, if you see pinstripes, well, patterns make a suit jacket less probably, except that blazers usually don't have vertical stripes. So it's sort of lose-lose.
