Fresh off ebay, trying to put an outfit together with it.






So I guess I'm looking for suggestions on...
Shirt Color
Tie
Pocket Square (if one)
and Pants

Or you can just tell me you hate the jacket

Grey/charcoal is easy and a no brainer.
Tan/camel/khaki or dark brown as a 2nd

I like it. And it reminds me of a Vintage 100% Cashmere coat that I have. The thin lapels are either very much like a current Thom Browne look, or they are vintage. And the fabric looks like Cashmere and a heavier weight.

Is the coat Vintage, and Cashmere?

BTW: Personally, I wouldn't wear it with a tie. I would favor Brown or Black pants, and a mock turtle top in a lighter color.

It's vintage, but actually wool. I'm guessing it's from the 60's.
