Knitted eveningwear: interesting

This rather unique cream shawl-collared knit dinner jacket was first seen in Giorgio Armani's S/S 2014 show, and while the way it's styled and worn doesn't do it any favours, it's an interesting proposition—paired with a woven dress shirt and a better pocket square, a finely textured knit with a bit of sheen could have similar refinement to a woven wool or velvet coat while potentially being more fitted and offering greater range of motion than either. Or of course it could end up looking like semi-formal thermal underwear. Feel free to send one over for evaluation, G, so that we can get to the bottom of this.
