I went with option 1, but mainly because option 2 has a poor pose.

Go to a nice menswear store and look at a nice two button charcoal or black herringbone sport coat. I also like muted window panes. Either is classic and you can dress it up or down as the situation demands.

It is not fervid hatred, it is just that I feel your choices are very limiting.
How about a classic sport coat with a western shirt, string tie, boots and jeans?
Still get a western look but can be paired with slacks and worn to other occasions. just saying.

Oh man, those are horrible! What school is this?

However, I'd gladly wear that purple vest with a proper black suit.

Nothing wrong with suede itself.....but fringes.......ugh! Thank God you retired them.

My main "light jacket" is still a dark brown suede one, but not that whole Western patchwork quilt kinda look.

I think you are not only confused about your wardrobe, but your sexuality too.
