    Anyone have any suggestions on what pant, shirt and tie combo I can wear with this jacket? I know that it goes with everything but I'm still having a difficult time picturing what would appropriate to wear to work. I'm having the most difficult time finding a tie.

    That looks like a pretty adaptable tweed, Cuttingboard. You could go simple with medium or dark gray flannel trousers, a blue shirt with a small pattern (micro-houndstooth, mini-tattersall, graph paper check, etc.), and matte tie in grenadine (as Beatlegeuse suggested), wool, cashmere, or even a twill silk as long as it wasn't too shiny. A nice, muted silk square in a moghul pattern or similar would also go nicely.

    Yesterday's shirt and tie with that SAME jacket: blue and white bengal stripe shirt + air force blue Drakes polka dot tie. It was smashing!

    Inspired (in part) by this fit posted by The Sart recently:

    You could also go English country gent with cords or moleskins, a tattersall check shirt and a woollen tie (or one with wildlife on it).

    I should have more than enough stuff for this coat, have the following pants:
    Light Grey Flannel & Wool
    Medium Grey Flannel & Wool
    Charcoal Wool
    Chocolate Brown Flannel
    Light Brown Flannel & Wool
    Navy Gaberdine

    I also have tons of solid white, blue, pink and blue Bengal/check/gingham shirts in my closet but every time I try to put something together, it looks like :censored:!!

    I think brown or navy grenadine would look great as well. (well, navy looks good with everything)

    Love the green grenadine! - looks just like mine from Kent Wang. When I bought it I didn't realize how versatile it would be and how much I would end up wearing it. It's nearly as versatile as a navy tie, and it's much more unexpected, which adds a little flair to the outfit.

    What type of tweed is this? I am going to wear this now that the weather is getting cooler, at least at night.
