Quite often, a solid sport coat feels odd. A blazer, while one of the most versatile tailored garments ever invented, can feel stale if worn too frequently. The idea of a checked sport coat is exciting to most clients. There isn't a rhyme or reason to why they can work so well, but sometimes its simply that it's not solid colored. There's depth in plaids, window-panes and checks that solid colored fabrics can't hold a candle to.
The fabric in these pictures has a creamy base when worn with blue jeans or navy trousers. But paired with cream trousers (above) looks grey. The colors represented atop the base are a dusty olive and a blue that looks like a laundry detergent. Easy colors to pair with navy and khaki. But they're also versatile in regards to shirts and ties.
Upon looking closer, the blue is actually two blues; royal and sky.
Checked fabrics are, simply put, more exciting. This jacket works with almost any blue shirt and almost any colored pant (black excluded). Next time you're hunting for a sport coat that adds depth to your wardrobe, ask us for recommendations.
