    while I agree with everyone here that a lined jacket will likely provide a cleaner, more professional silhouette, the reality is that a SS jacket, whether lined or unlined, will look 10x better than whatever the average interviewee will be wearing in most circumstances, which is an ill-fitting, fused jacket from a mall fashion or discount fashion store. So I think an unlined Havana with flap pockets would be just fine almost 99% of the time.

      Let me post pics on the fit of the Havana on me vs. the Lazio. I am worried that the Lazio swallows me. I am slim, 5'9" 165, and I have a small frame. Grey pic is the lazio. The blue jacket is the Havana. Sorry about the lighting. SS doesn't have particularly bright lights.

        Ok, between those two, the blue all day long. It's much more flattering on you.

          You may want to try a size down in the Lazio.

            I understand where both ( [MENTION=17082]Hebrew Barrister[/MENTION]) of you are coming from. I would argue that fit is the most important. Also, the OP’s location and occupation may give him a little more leeway. Finally, 99% of the interview will most likely be sitting down witth the jacket unbuttoned, eliminating most benefits of drape.

              The blue jacket is more flattering for your physique, but I would go with what [MENTION=2341]LesserBlackDog[/MENTION] had to and try sizing down in the Lazio.

                I tried sizing down, and I couldn't pull off the look I wanted. The canvas is too stiff, and I am not big enough in the upper chest to fill it out. I returned everything. I thought about getting a Traveler Havana, but I went against it. Although the Havana jacket fits phenomenally, the pants are the same cut as the Lazio, and they didn't fit right either. I must have and odd thin shape. Actually the Bonobos suit OTR fit ME way better.

                Anyways, appreciate the help and suggestions
