    here is the full listing. normally you can click on the pic and see the original listing.

    It looks like its in great condition BUT they are doing some lighting tricks.

      Hmmm...the only part that bothers me is the right area under the pocket flap. It looks like it is balding. Otherwise, if it fits it could be worth it. Most camel sport coats are flap pockets. I have always wanted one but don't know how I would wear it.

        • This might be too pricey at $260 on sale, but for a Made in USA sport coat, it’s a steal!! If nothing else, the pic can give you style inspiration:

              Those look like pretty different jackets to me - the SuitSupply one looks more like a natural linen, summery jacket. Hard to tell from just that one picture, but it seems like an apples and oranges comparison. They both seem like nice jackets - I'd go with the one you like. (And with the Brooks Brothers one, it's hard to go too far wrong for $30...)

              • sorry for all the blazer post but im slowing building my wardrobe up

                just saw this, the white one, and im kind of drawn to it. like a lot. But, I fucking HATE all the other colors. Is this something I could pull off similar to the pictures for a date night/work outfit

                • How much of a faux pas is a black coat coat with brown shoes? I know that people generally recommend charcoal/navy for overcoats (perhaps for this very reason), but black is what I have right now...

                    Overcoats are expensive so one often has to compromise. If you only have one, charcoal is a more versatile option, but many people wear black. It’s not as elegant as it could be, but in the great catalog of sartorial faux pas, it’s minor infraction. I wouldn’t worry about it until your coat wears out and you need to replace it.

                    • Got myself a cheap-and-cheerful velvet blazer for holiday parties, one at work, one at a home. Both are probably in the ballpark of smart-casual


                      Could I wear this with a polo shirt? A white one? Would a deep navy one look good?
                      Also, I think medium grey pants would be good, but chinos or wool trousers?

                        Now that's pretty cool. Perfect for the holiday season.

                          A polo wouldn't work with velvet. The contrast would be too jarring. The photo is styled correctly. The jacket needs a white dress shirt, dark wool trousers and black shoes. You could try a charcoal turtleneck.

                            I think either a white or a black turtleneck would work with that. It's a bit of a departure from the traditional button shirt look, but personally I like the blazer-turtleneck combo.

                            If you google something like "how to wear a burgundy blazer" you will find all sorts of ideas on their image search.

                                I'd go with parka as it seems more versatile.
