    As with any unusually colored item, it’s easiest to pair it with subdued, solid neutrals. Grey, brown, navy, khaki, off-white, white. I’d wear that jacket with grey or off-white chinos, a light blue shirt, and a brown tie; or brown trousers, a white shirt, and a navy knit tie; or with grey denim and a white or light blue OCBD; etc. if you want to add a bit of interest you could throw in a pocket square with hints of contrasting colors like tangerine orange. When you develop more confidence with your ability to mix and match colors, textures, and patterns, you can branch out, but to start it’s easiest to stick to neutrals.

    There is no real texture to the jacket from the online pics so I would say it looks like an orphaned suit jacket. Then again, I would not wear that loud of a suit so it looks a little casual due to that. I mean it is up to you but I lean more towards orphaned suit.

    Unstructured and the fabric looks somewhat textured so probably just fine. Suit jackets are typically a little longer/more traditional with details than sport coats. Might consider sizing down one or going R if you're normally L in length if it doesn't seem to match up well with wearing casual.

    Edit to add: it looks textured in the pictures at least but that could just be my eyes. I just saw @JBarwick's reply. If it has any smoothness or sheen to it IRL then I would avoid for sure.

    Good call holding off. That doesn't look good.

    Funny--I guess it goes to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    When I saw the first picture, I thought, "no way with jeans."

    But when I saw the second picture, I think it looks pretty good.

    So, no accounting for taste, I guess.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    haha, I thought it looked good in person. But, online it looked like it would match horrible with jeans. which is what has given me pause.

    part of the issue is that j crew has cut back on having as many "blazers" as they used to and now brand things as suit seperates

    I was looking at Uniqlo, most of their shirts look like one can't tuck them in. Which option do you have?
