So anyway... My question: What is the difference between a sport coat/suit coat/blazer?
I have a suit that the jacket fits me fine, but the pants seem to have shrunk in the waist ( ) over the last few years. If I wear that jacket with a different pair of slacks, does it become a sports coat? Or is there some difference in the cut?
Incidentally, what is the going opinion on a coat/jacket/blazer of one color and slacks of another color? For some recent 'formal' dinners, I have been forced to wear black slacks with my navy blue jacket due to short notice. It never felt right to me. Just wondering what some other people thought?
