Orphaned suit jackets are a fashion nono but practically I think it's a bad idea because if you wear the jacket alone more than you wear the slacks they'll wear at different rates and will look off when you wear them together again.

Some sport coats are flexible imo, needs to be different from the pants but still work with the pants / shirt / tie if worn.

Imo it can work, depends how dressed up you're going for.

Also sports coats tend to be more patterned/rugged than suit jackets

Just get a sports coat/blazer regardless. It's good to have for going out, more casual weddings, etc

Well, except for the ubiquitous navy blue blazer. Boring, but handy.

Isn't the jacket going to get worn less frequently anyway? If I'm wearing a suit to work or to a social function, I normally take off my jacket when I sit down anyway. So, the jacket gets less wear than my slacks would.

Is this discrepancy usually not significant enough to cause significant differences between the wear of the slacks and the jacket?

The jacket will last longer than that pants, so it's a good idea to get 2 pants for each jacket.

Homer and Jethro sang about their tough luck. One of them bought a suit with 2 pairs of pants, and "burned a hole in the jacket." Yet another reason to avoid cigarettes, IMO.
