thanks. going to go back over today to check it out. i like the idea of a sports coat--I can dress up jeans or a pair of slacks if needed. Maybe I just need to find the right knit but nothing I have really dresses up an outfit the same way, and I often find sweaters too hot. The trouble for sports coat is color. Grey seems good with jeans but obviously not with grey slacks. Blue is good with grey slacks but is a bit prep, and also might look funny with jeans. maybe hold out for something in brown like a brown tweed, or maybe i'll kop this.
