i like the original better. but it's up to you. i just say that because as a throwback to the movie Susan said she put everyone from Oz in color while the Wizard is in black and white. keep in mind though that that is a costume pattern, and so probably doesn't have a lining. that doesn't suggest you couldn't get more fabric and make a lining but you might have fit issues due to a jacket's pleated lining on the back. i would also flare the bottom of the jacket out more. there's a photo of Ben Vereen in the role and he's like twirling. you see the whole jacket, and it's actually rather large. but it is a good starting point.
