    Bonobos Tremont jacket in navy or khaki?

    While Bonobos has an extra 25% off promo running, I was thinking of picking up one of their cotton/linen blend jackets for the warm weather. My questions are:

    1. Would you go with the navy or khaki? Which would be more versatile in the spring/summer?
    2. Do you think it would be fine to wear as a blazer (without the matching suit pants)?

    I like the navy one, think it would be a little more versatile personally. Especially in our area where it has rained every day for last 200 days. Something seems off to me about wearing a khaki-colored coat when it's dreery, muggy, and gross. I also feel like the buttons on the khaki one are strange being pearl/white (could just be me).

      Agree with DerekH, the navy is more versatile (and agree those white buttons look whack). I think the khaki would be a little harder to pull off as a sport coat than the navy. Unless you already have a lightweight navy jacket, of course...

        Navy is definitely more versatile, but if you already have a navy jacket, then I would go with khaki.

          I have a navy jacket that is a thicker cotton. It's not light enough to wear in the summer. It's more of a fall season weight. I need to get a lighter one (which hopefully this one can fill that role) and a wool one that will be good for much colder temps.

          Thanks for the assist. I'm going to give the navy a try. Their CS person said their jackets fit TTS so let's hope that's correct.

            Navy will be more versatile. And I'm also not wild about that particular khaki sports coat. But I have both a navy and a cream colored (close-ish to khaki) linen-cotton sports coat and the cream colored one draws way more raves than the navy. It just looks breezy and relaxed. Whereas navy, even in unstructured cotton-linen, somehow hints a the formality of a traditional navy wool blazer. So I think your intended usage for the jacket makes a difference. I choose which one to wear based on context, and the navy one is indeed more versatile, but, in general, I tend to wear the navy one when I know I'll be out in the evening and the cream one when I'm out mainly during the day.

              Can you link the cream one you have?

                I guess you are lucky enough to be a 38?

                Also this seems to have the same issue as the one I just which is these things are really short for people over 5'11

                  Yes, I'm a 38R. Also, I've always thought I was 5'8" but a doctor visit last week actually measured me in at 5'7" so hopefully I shouldn't have an issue with the jacket being too short.
