    Which Bonobos Italian wool jacket?

    I swore I wasn't buying any new jackets but the Bonobos sale on the Italian wool is too good. But I'm torn between the colors:

    Light blue:

    or


    the Oliver solid blue?

    Which one should I get (budget says I can't have both).

    Assuming you have a more traditional dark blue/navy already, my vote would be for the Oliver over the light blue. I have a similar color summer sportcoat which is easily swapped into most places where I'd otherwise wear navy blazer, and it instantly "summers" up my outfit. The light blue could be pretty cool as well, but I think would be a bit tougher to work in--at least on my normal wardrobe. If you do more pastels / Southern prep, the light blue would probably fit better.

    I feel like the only colors pants I could pull off with both jackets would be light khaki, light grey, or white/cream. I am not a fan of how either is styled on the website. Based on that, I would vote for light blue only because I prefer the hue.

    What is your skin and hair colour? That may be a deciding factor.

    i think some of this depends on your level of dress. I am going against the grain and saying the darker jacket. I feel it is more versatile.
