Thanks, even though I bought it new and it has all the usual tags, UNITE etc. I can't find one with the fabric content. It has a very smooth hand though. It doesn't wrinkle so I'm guessing a wool/silk blendVery nice outfit - it all looks good together. What kinda material is the sport coat?

wool-cotton was my second guess and upon further reflection, I think you are correct.Thank you.
Looking at it on an old laptop, I thought wool-cotton, but wool-silk makes sense too and you, of course, are seeing and touching it IRL.
Whatever it is - I really like it. Looks like a wonderful all-purpose warm-weather sport coat.
Fantastic, one of my favorites of yours. Excellent from the collar role down to the bucks. Well done.I wore this outfit to a client event at Newport Polo two years ago and one of my compatriots told me I looked like a fixer for the Kennedys...

Another outstanding rig. I love the sport coat and its herringbone pattern. Is its color in the blue family? It looks that way on my aging laptop.A bit more international in today's rig.

edited to add, the coat is a 2005 piece from ebay in a silk,wool,linen blend herringbone pattern. Has all the usual trad details: 3/2 roll, sack cut with patch and flap pockets and a center vent. Amazing how quickly BB veered off course.
Thank you. Yes it's navy. The tie-bar is a recent acquisition from Brooks Bros during one of their never-ending clearances. I had it monogrammed by them as well. I appreciate that it's made in the USA.Another outstanding rig. I love the sport coat and its herringbone pattern. Is its color in the blue family? It looks that way on my aging laptop.
I ask because @delicious_scent (in the Tweed thread) has been considering a blue herringbone overcoat and I think this - if it has a blue hue - could be a good example of a pattern, scale and color (not weight) that would work as an overcoat.
I like your engine-turned tie-bar, it's a nice touch.
Very nice, handsome sack and very classic overall outfit with the shoes adding some piquancy.Substantially cooler weather allows for my first suit wearing of the summer. This suit was my first attempt at recreating the venerable no.1 sack suit by taking advantage of Southwicks MTO program. Although shown in two piece configuration I do have a matching waistcoat with lapels. Fabric is a navy self stripe with a herringbone pattern S110s by VBC. Nothing overly fancy more of a workhorse material.
