Thoughts on a jacket and matching colors
Came across these two jackets and wanted to get some feedback from people on either of them. They're both pretty similar.
Another question, I have some khaki pants that are very similar in color to these jackets and I was wondering if you all thought it was a bad idea to wear them together? I know monochrome works fine for say business suits but I wasn't sure if it also applied for a jacket and pants combination (I'd wear a different color shirt under it).

Yeah I quite like them. But no, definitely wouldn't wear khakis with them. They're fairly casual jackets, so some indigo or black jeans would work. Or with the first one, maybe a rich burgundy if you want something more colourful?

I like them too, not sure which one I prefer. Reminds me of the safari trend.
I wouldn't wear Khaki either too similar colours can often have the opposite affect to what your after.
You may be better off wearing Navy, White, Off-White or potentially a Sand colour if you want to go close.

Thanks for the advice everyone. Those two links both have some good pieces on there. However, I noticed some of them do show the monochrome look with the pants and jackets being the same color. Does that only work in those cases because they are all part of a set so the uniform look is then appropriate?

I think a monochrome look can be really good. I often wear a similar coloured jacket with my sand coloured chinos and sand coloured boots too.
