    I'm considering this sportcoat as I have no brown coats. Can I wear it with jeans? What other color slacks? The close-ups show a subtle pattern that I think makes its more interesting than it looks in the big pix - any comments?
    Thanks

    Even with the herringbone pattern, the jalepeno green just is too much for me. Sorry.

    Good point - although doesn't it look way more brown than green?

    May be just my monitor. However, that is the risk with buying non-traditional colors without the ability to see it in sunlight and in standard in door lighting. Good luck.

    Looks like a brownish tan to me. I see no green at all, especially the rich deep green of a jalapeno.

    Sounds like time to calibrate the monitor.

    The risk seems pretty low to me given the 90 day return policy.

    you can wear tan, black, charcoal, olive, and darker or lighter shades of brown with that jacket. Some shy away from navy slacks, but I'm not a member of that crowd. Navy would look good with that jacket. I think jeans could work, as well. Definitely khaki chinos.

    buy it.

    I wonder if they haven't adjusted the colors. Look how washed out the yellow tie is, and how bleached the price tag. Maybe it's just well lit, but I imagine if they describe it as green, it really is.

    On some of my auctions, I've adjusted the color to make it look "right," only to see it on another monitor and realize I'd botched it up.
