    I picked up a Barbera Sartoriale blue/shite seersucker jacket that I really like. But I'm wondering exactly how to wear it. Obviously there's linen trousers and khaki chinos, but what else? Would it look good with some light wash Wranglers?

    What about shirts? Beyond basic oxford/poplin BD in white and pastels, there's polo shirts, but would anything else work?

    Dark but broken in jeans would look better than light wash jeans. Maybe slim navy linen or tropical wool trousers.

    Shirts, I have no idea.

    Is that a typo, or a Freudian slip?

    Many different kinds of button-downs would work. Smooth texture is preferred. Please say no to French cuffs or anything else that's very dressy.
