Yes, you can. The plaid sportcoat is an iconic style that was immortalized by New England college students way back in the '50s and '60s as an alternative to wool in the summer (wicked smart, those guys) and as a chance to stand out. The key is finding the right one. Our version takes a serious approach to details (like mother-of-pearl buttons and a full lining) and uses a natural indigo-dyed plaid for deep color that will age beautifully over many years of wear. We're wearing ours with some broken-in chinos and a vintage oxford.
