    This jacket is a attention grabber. If you are ok with this and want to get that much attention , I would suggest Fluro Green or Fluro Pink shirt and pants with matching hankie.
    And also keep this jacket inside your car boot at all time as a High visibility safety jacket......:slayer:

    I don't mind a bit of flash and panache. The yellow color is brighter than anything I would choose, but that's your call. However, what really ruins it in my opinion, is that that thing is wa-a-ay too small. You'll look like you filched it from the Boys' Department. If wear it you must, I'd suggest a French blue shirt with perhaps and blue and yellow square.

    The jacket is too small. Lose 10-15 lbs and you will be ok.

    No problem.

    I didn't mention this before, but you know the coat is too tight. I don't think the coat is worth it, or I'd suggest you get the larger one and tailor it and I'd usually never suggest it, but it might look better unbuttoned.

    PS - Look here for alternatives to black and white.

    Alright, I'll ring in on this. These are suggestions that will work independantly of this jacket and (hopefully) will work with it.
    You can choose whatever manufacturers you like.

    Polo Ralph Lauren Bengal Stripe Shirt but not the yellow one. (avoid oxford cloth as it may be too heavy but ut is your call)

    [​IMG]


    Paul Smith Navy Blue Knitted Tie This one tie will work with any of the Bengal shirts above.

    Use existing pocket square and keep jacket unbuttoned. This jacket is for fun anyway so it won't matter much.
    I would also be interested to see how our bretheren grades my suggestions. This jacket colour wasn't easy but I tried.
    Nix the black shirt, it is too 'bumble bee'. Nix the white pants because with the yellow jacket you'll look like an egg with legs.
    You can still wear a nice Panama hat with above combo until autumn.
    Hope this helps.

    If you have dark hair:

    Black polo shirt. Ray Ban Wayfarer. White linen pants. Woven leather bet. Brown boat shoes.

    If you have light hair:

    Light blue or white polo shirt. Air force blue cotton pants.

    But size up on the jacket, and lose the hankie.

    You'll have to wear it unbuttoned as it is a little small. I must say, it's a very daring choice but if worn with confidence you could look really cool! I'd say navy pants instead of white so you don't end up looking like "pimp on a speed boat". Boat shoes would however, look cool with it, maybe yellow like these ones haha or the blue ones

    As for a hankie, depends how much you want to go all out! Yellow is very WOW so you can afford to have a purple or orange clash. Failing that, a navy hankie to match the pants.

    I agree the jacket is on the tight side but forgot to ask the OP if exchanging it was an option.
    I also agree on the French Blue shirt as an option. Does this mean the white pants stay? If so, would the blue shirt tails not show through the white pants? Also, what colour shoes would you propose? In my own suggestion I stuck with brown but now wonder about the possibility of either burgundy or tan.

    I'd go for a pale blue shirt in solid colour, white chinos and buff desert boots and maybe a navy square with white dots

    ^ Lord Mulberry presents a good point. ^ Pale or pastel colours for the shirt may help.
    Though fun, the type of yellow on this jacket is very difficult to work with.
