    Background info: I dress casually, very rarely wearing a suit or sports coat, just don't have any occasions to wear them. Usually wear chinos for pants.

    So I'm in the middle of getting a safari jacket made in a light-navy linen, unlined, with a bunch of bells and whistles. Theoretically, it should be very versatile and useful for my wardrobe.

    If that works out and my budget allows it, thinking about getting another shirt jacket made in a nicer fabric. Something that I can comfortably wear inside, like a looser, slouchier version of a sports coat, but won't look out of place in today's casual world.

    This is the closest OTR thing I've found that fits the bill, but it's not in my size.


    I currently dig the triple patch pocket look above, and might do a half-belt on the back with inverted box pleat.


    That is one fabric I found. I am not sure if Luxire sells the fabric straight to consumer though.

    So any ideas on what type of cloth to use, and possible styling? Where to buy a particular cloth as well?
