    I'm looking to have a sportcoat made out of the gold/taupe windowpane below


    And I was wondering what is the preferred cut for a material of this type? I was thinking of SB with PL, one or two buttons and side vents. (I may wear it open) Should it have a plain back or some detail? (This is for casual wear)
    Thanks for your suggentions /advice

    Looks very nice. Personally, I would get that it in a notch lapel, single breasted, side vents with a plain back, and a trim fit. I would definitely be careful on getting it too loose, because of the large pattern.

    The more plain the material, the more likely I am to want unique styling details. Peak lapels are classic, but a lot of people will see them as a fashion trend, a la ticket pockets and functioning buttonholes.

    Tucker Carlson wore a very nice sportcoat similar to the one you describe last night but Notch lapels

    Only get the patch pockets if you aren't "hippy." Some of us learn that the hard way. [​IMG]

    That windowpane is nice. If you're slender, just make sure the panes aren't too large for your physique -- a large windowpane in that color on a slender person could be overwhelming.

    The more I think about it I agree that notch lapel is the way to go. I think if I were to go 3 button it'd be rolled to 2 ( I don't want to show too much horizontal line from the pattern) Thanks for the suggestions! Any back detail you'd recommend?
