The anchor of the well-groomed man’s wardrobe: The sport coat. With its classic fit and modern silhouette, the sport coat is a major-league playmaker.

Dressed up or dressed down, on the road or at home, you’ll always be in the game wearing a sport coat. Sporting the most valuable piece for fall are manager Lloyd McClendon of the Pittsburgh Pirates, head coach Eddie Olczyk of the Pittsburgh Penguins and head coach Jamie Dixon of the University of Pittsburgh Panthers men’s basketball squad. All three score big in fall’s easygoing, wool- and silk-blend sport coats. From suiting up for the big game to their post-game threads, these leaders among men raise the curtain on the versatile sport coat.


Lloyd McClendon
Manager, Pittsburgh Pirates

On coaching:
“Outside of winning, my goal is to see my players develop into their best. It helps that we have the greatest park in the country, with a great city in our own backyard.”

On sport coats:
“They’re extremely versatile. I can take one sport coat and wear it with 12 different pairs of pants and get 12 different outfits.”

Lloyd rounds home in a charcoal gray, wool and silk, houndstooth check sport coat ($2,295) by Oxxford Clothes, styled with classic gray flannel slacks ($345) by Ermenegildo Zegna; black merino sweater with argyle accents ($345) over a blue charcoal sport shirt ($210), both by Ermenegildo Zegna.  All from Larrimor’s.



Pick & Roll
A navy chenille sport coat ($1,395) and gray stretch flat-front trouser ($295) with a blue sport shirt ($235) and stripe silk tie ($105), all by Armani Collezioni, from Larrimor’s.



The Home Run
A tan cashmere-and-silk three-button sport coat with gold-and-blue window pane ($1,395), olive corduroy slacks ($195) and a French blue dress shirt ($155), all by Canali; and a blue stripe tie ($140) by Brioni, from Larrimor’s.

 



Jamie Dixon
Head Coach, University of Pittsburgh Panthers, Men’s Basketball

On coaching:
“Our players are what I like most about coaching at Pitt. We try to have fun—that’s definitely part of the big picture.”

On sport coats:
“I never thought of style and my name in the same sentence, because you can usually find me in casual practice gear. My wife buys most of my clothes, including my sport coats; I like them for their comfortability and relaxed fit.”

Jamie takes his style into overtime with this slate-grey, five-button check sport coat ($525), white button-down shirt and black slacks, all from Montaj.
 



Eddie Olczyk
Head Coach, Pittsburgh Penguins

On coaching:
“It’s a terrific opportunity to lead Mario and the Penguins. It’s a challenge, but I enjoy watching the team come together.”

On sport coats:
“Since I’m on the road, my sport coats are professional yet comfortable. I have about 40 of them, and I keep a few hanging in my office, just in case.”

Eddie looks smooth as ice in his navy, window-pane-plaid sport coat ($1,745) and dark-gray slacks ($345), both by Ermenegildo Zegna; and blue herringbone sport shirt ($225) by Brioni, all from Larrimor’s.


Double Play
This taupe plaid silk-and-cashmere sport coat ($1,445) is paired with seasonal brown slacks ($325), a tan-and-blue micro-check shirt ($245) and brown-and-blue striped tie ($130), all by Ermenegildo Zegna, from Larrimor’s.
