    I I recently purchased a nice light blue blazer by LV. It has a very nice soft blue color. What would look good with it?

    It's exactly that one? Too bad it's three-button.

    I have a rather fitted one by Isaia in cotton. I wear it with jeans or cement colored cotton pants and always with a crisp white shirt and white PS.

    A white PS?

    It is exactly that one. It fits nice, but the sleeves are a little long.

    mid-to-light gray pants might be nice.

    I own that same jacket, or one very similar. I never button it, and I won't wear it when the weather cools down. It's an excellent summer jacket. Having three buttons is unfortunate but this hasn't dissuaded me from wearing the jacket regularly. Wear it with a linen pocket square or a light colored cotton, a silk knit tie or unbutton the top two buttons... consider the third button sprezzaturra. Wear light colored trousers. I really like this jacket.

    Looks pretty versatile and a great look. I would think navy blue slacks, khakis, bright red pants, and jeans could all be pulled off pretty easily with that jacket.

    I would agree with this, for the record. I would almost treat a blue jacket like a light blue shirt. Just about any colour works. My issue is solely with the three buttons (I think it looks frumpy, especially on a more casual sportcoat), and I would also hope that it fits properly. Nice silhouette and so on.
