The patterned sport coat is not the first suiting item to take up residence in a guy’s closet. That’s a grey or navy suit. It’s not even the second—that’s whichever colored suit you didn’t get the first time. But it can happily be a solid third. Sure you could go with a solid-colored style, but honestly, this feels like the time to live a little, don’t you think?

Check out three ways to wear a patterned sport coat – in three very different looks – for some outfit inspiration:
