I think it'll fit your current wardrobe. Just my 2 cents

I think you are probably in the wrong part of the forum. I don't think this is the best example of its kind I've seen, but the idea of a patterned jacket like this isn't in itself a bad aesthetic.
The jacket is definitely an interesting piece, but I could never pull something like that off. I always remind myself that patterns are best left for people with more imagination and style than myself. Aside from my flannels and a couple patterned sweaters, I mostly buy solids and focus on interesting color combos and textures. I would probably look ridiculous in that jacket.

If it’s true patchwork, it’s pretty neat. If it’s a print, I dunno. Still kinda cool

Jacket looks great.

Where’s it from if you don’t mind me asking?
It's Eastlogue and sold from Namu shop

I don't think it'd be hard to style, just keep everything else simple. Not sure if I'll get it yet, wondering if thinsulate is too warm for California.

But I'd wear it with a white hoodie and relaxed black sweatpants or black/navy/dark grey/olive pants on colder days. Ditch the hoodie when it's not as cold. Boots or casual lace ups for shoes.
