Just post cool pics of your jackets that you like. Tell us your stories of your favorite sportjacket.
Mine is above. It has a history that goes from Italy to Florida.
You know I have not long ago sent you a PM saying I really appreciate your posts. I just don't get much out of seeing clothes laying flat. That is not meant to be offensive.

I am really looking forward to Fall and tweed sportcoat whether. I'll be bringing one of these to Italy with me in November then straight to The Queen Mary. So, it will have that much richer of a history.
Another interesting thing about tweeds is that they already come with a history in the weave of the fabric, sometimes of clan, locale, or country, or often colors that are symbollic of nature. There is a certain romance to a tweed sportcoat, or even to a Palm Beach Plaid for that matter.
And no offense to Tomasso, or anyone else, but I also agree that clothes and hats need bodies to animate them; to see the drape, fit, texture, cut, and for hats the proportion, brim conformity to the head, and fit. It's also a nice way to get to know our fellow members. Clothes laying on a flat surface are lifeless things.
Matt, I like your jacket and in that pic you have that "Clark Kent rushing to the phonebooth look about you."

Most of my sportjackets are just pantsless suit jacket, here are some of the more interesting ones:
Here are some rock'n'roll fifties. . .
and of course, my single button, peak lapel hepkat jacket:
I think sport jackets are great for everyday wear as there are countless ways to combine things and as an Indiana Jones-fan and collector of the clothes that were worn in the films I simply like the idea of the tough tweed sport coat that you can put in travel bag and wear on more formal events.
I think I like a sport worn with a vest and pants in the same color (for example: choc-brown coat + dark brown vest and pants) better than a totally matching suit.
resortes805, as usual you have the best looking stuff!
I like the versatility of a sports coat.
This is a two piece herrigbone but it looks great as a sportscoat.
I have a few others I will try to get pictures of.
