Of the 2, the first is much much better. Reminds me of a mechanic suit. It'd be hard to wear though.

First one looks interesting. And yeah this is my interpretation of a "SW&D" suit. Just seems easy to style and throw on for layering.Toasty, I love that you're going outside of the comfort zone here, but...why those?
Checked out Rosen? Some really cool silhouettes in casual suits, high quality, and everything is MTO, so very customizable (including fabrics, if you ask). Strikes me as maybe the kind of vibe you're looking into. There's one jumpsuit too, but I like the styles with separates better, personally.First one looks interesting.

I like the first one I posted more but the second seems to have the technical aspects that I think of when trying to buy quality garments. First one still looks nicer. I actually do not know of any jumpsuits available but @OccultaVexillum gave some nice suggestions.
I think olive chinos are OK with a blue sport coat. If it matters to you, you could get a dressier looking pair. I think chinos can look a little dressier or more casual depending on their design and construction. Some have a cleaner looking edge, whereas the seam on very casual chinos tend to be puckered. Rota and The Armoury's chinos, for example, look very dressy. J Crew is more casual.I’m looking at adding a second pair of chino’s for spring, summer, fall. The first pair, is the traditional beige/tan/khaki. I have been considering an olive pair.
In the below photo’s you’ll see a pair of olive J Crew chino’s my wife got me for X-mas that I have been using frequently on weekend and when working from home because they are amazingly comfortable. I don’t like the fit of them, and obviously the lining makes them too warm fort my purposes.
The reason I photographed them with this old blue blazzer is I have trouble pairing blue/green - and have a new blue SC coming for S/S/F that I want to optimize around.
Olive - thumbs up/down? If so favorite brand/model? I prefer options where the inseam doesn’t need to be hemmed.
If not olive what? And again brand/model recommendation?

Yes, the stitching is a little cleaner on the pair you just linked, which gives the pants a more tailored look. They're basically like dress trousers but in cotton.@dieworkwear is this what you’d mean by a littke dressier?
I get confused when not described as chinos!
I seem to recall from an instagram story sometime in the past couple of weeks that production is delayed but carrying on. Not 100% sure now, though, so probably wouldn't hurt to ask. In terms of the jumpsuit being out of stock, I believe the way that stock works on her site is relative, and refers to that piece in a specific fabric. But if you want one and are interested in a different material, you can get in touch and she'll help you pick a different fabric to make it in.
