Hmm, and Rod, you're not alone in your loathing of safari jackets, they wouldn't look good even in a safari! There's another particular reason for not liking them: since some years ago they seem to be the rage among the fashionista contingent of the Spanish posh crowd, like the gurkha strides and the tebas.

Actually, this type of jacket, one of the contributions of Spanish tailoring to the sartorial world:

Nothing too groundbreaking, tbh, but as classic wardrobe staples goes, this couple of COS newbies look quite nice (the silk panel on the short sleeve cardie, for instance, is a great detail):

Well, that's pretty hideous, color is pretty awful,and it looks 100% polyester. Frankly I don't see even a faint resemblance to the Cifonelli piece I posted (let alone a "safari" jacket), but that's me, I guess.
It's easy to forget, but I try to remember what Sly said all those years ago: "Different strokes, for different folks"...  ;)

Just replying to Simon, Mike, on the subject of what a Spanish "teba" was, nothing to do with any Safari jacket or the Cifonelli jacket you posted.

We call that colour "camel" here.

I'll give your regards to mr. Tebas, Simon  ;D

These look nice on the Anglozine website - https://www.anglozine.london/search?q=soleri

Not sure how fitted they are; on one of the pictures they look a little baggy, but that might just be the camera angle.  Not cheap either (180), but they certainly look to be quality.

I like them too, Paul, Dave has featured them on the His Knibs site (https://www.hisknibs.com/soleri-vintage-style-knitted-t-shirt-by-anglozine/); an interesting detail is the "hidden" pocket on the side seam, quite practical for small items. But for a more affordable take on the knitted striped tee, the Farafield ones seem hard to beat: https://www.farafield.uk/knitwear/newport-t-shirt-arabesque-orange-white-sand-organic-cotton/

Hot too keen on the pale lemon almost white GS. My pasty complexion wouldn't be able to carry it off, would look better on tanned and olive skin tones
Do it well

Yep, that's an issue some people disregard, LM, but skin tone must also be considered before choosing garments' colours.
