    No, I have a casual cotton blazer that gets action with Chinos and Jeans, was looking for a versatile jacket fabric that I could wear hopefully year round (live in NC--temperature stays pretty moderate and I run pretty hot anyways) with dressed up chinos (JCrew Bowery) and then also grey wool pants. Was thinking a hopsack jacket would hit all the check marks vs. a worsted wool. My work is very casual so never need one for work, but would still like to find a versatile jacket I could dress up or down to wear on the weekends on date nights, events, etc.

I was planning on reveling in the irony (or hypocrisy, if you're not feeling charitable).

    Excuses having been laid to rest, allow me to make un-requested comments. @Shomas - I think up top and on the feet, you're killing it, but I can't help but think pants that fit a little fuller and possessed just a slightly higher rise (not sty-fo igent high but higher than bonobos allows) would serve you so much better.
    @jharrisonbarrett - bravo! bra-[REDACTED]-vo! (slight bias- I have white tretorns with the navy details and they are magnificent)
    I think that's a fair take. This suit is Bonobos' slim fit, which ordinarily wouldn't be my preference, but for the price, it was not something I could pass up. I think the slimness would also be slightly less pronounced with a lower profile shoe.

    depending on the weight hopsack is not suited for winter. Usually hopsack is a very light fabric, mine is 9-10oz. I know there are heavier weight hopsack fabrics, but my tailor and friend, said hopsack is almost exclusively a summer fabric, because it is airier than linen. You don't want so much air flow in winter. Being a summer fabric, hopsack would look weird in winter, like linen.
    Unfortunately I discovered years ago 4seasons fabric just don't exist.

    Thanks @sogno. Yeah, may have been wishful thinking that I could get by with one main Navy jacket for all seasons. I really just don't wear jackets enough to justify one for all seasons, at least right now. Maybe that will change some day.

    Thanks @fiftyforfifty! To be honest....I got the most compliments I've ever had while wearing this shirt! Every other person had something to nice to say about it. Luckily there are plenty out there in just about every store. Just got lucky and picked the graphic tee that had a hint of fasihon (floral) but a style that will never die (Star Wars!)

    @jharrisonbarrett - Love the fit. The shoes look like they are buckling out though.
    @BillN - Looks good other than the indoor light throwing off the colors. The orange tie seems a little bold for a wedding but nothing wild and pea cocking.
