Signs in better restaurants used to request that gentlemen wear jackets. These signs aren’t so common anymore, but I think wearing a jacket elevates your dining pleasure as well as your appearance. The sport coat should be your new best friend because it is one of the most versatile items in your wardrobe. The sport coat is a useful holder for your phone and glasses and makes a man of any age, weight, or state of fitness look slim, trim, and polished. With a vest and scarf the sport coat becomes outerwear in the fall. With well-fitting jeans and a white shirt, a sport coat communicates sophisticated leisure. With a dress shirt, tie, and dress trousers, the sport coat completes a put-together look for many business and social occasions. Business meetings, dinner with the in-laws, drinks with friend, you name it: a sport coat can take you anywhere.
