Wearing a 'yellow' cashmere jacket?

I've been looking at an E.Zegna jacket on ebay, and think it might be a good buy.

The measurements appear to fit my build, but I'm not so sure about the colour.

The fabric looks to be a heavy-ish herringbone, and is claimed to be 100% cashmere.

The seller describes it as yellow, and normally I wouldn't look twice at a yellow jacket, but to me the photo (small as it is) looks ok.

What would you wear with a yellow jacket?

What price would be reasonable to pay?

This could be a nice jacket for occasional summer wear if it is a light weight wool. Light grey trousers, maybe?

I have a Kiton jacket similar to that base color with a very light blue over check that I wear most often with tan pants and a blue (any shade) shirt. Have also worn with light grey trousers and even with jeans. Nice warm weather casual.

Cool summer nights. I love that color , I would pair it with light gray pants in the summer evening and light gray flannel in the winter. I think that is a great color with a light blue shirt and it sort of reminds of a ligther shade of a camelhair sportcoat.

Wear it in spring- April around here. Nice spring color and it's warm.

Well thanks for the replies.

It ends in just under 2 hours, and is still pretty cheap ($46). But I forsee a flurry of last minute activity that might push the price up.

Edit: Auction over. Didn't win it, but it went for AUD$66 for those playing at home.
I decided that I wouldn't get all that much wear out of it in any case.
