Look for breathable fabrics with cotton when wearing layers in hotter climates. Wool is a natural fiber sheered from sheep, goats, or other animals. Heavier wool fabrics form tight weaves that keep you warm and are long lasting, especially when properly treated by dry cleaning.
Simple spot cleaning or a cycle through the washing machine affords lots of repeated wear. Silk blazers present a smooth silhouette, and the distinct fabric is an upscale alternative to traditional black-tie attire.
Warm up in cold weather by bypassing the classic tuxedo in favor of a lined corduroy men's coat. These specialty materials are rare choices that enhance your ensemble through styles and colors that attract a lot of attention. Mens Cotton Stretch Blazer. Mens Portly Hopsack Sport Coat.

Previous Page 1 2 Also I believe there are slight differences in the cuts, jacket length and the looseness, but those can change a lot. I think it mostly since sports coats, blazers and suit jackets are all much more similar comes down to the fabric and whether or not they come with pants. You'll be hardpressed to find a suit with gold anchor buttons but there's plenty of blazers with them. If I've understood things correctly, suit jackets are a type of blazer?
They're identical, except that not all blazers have matching pants and thank god for that. No, blazers lack matching pants. Suit jackets have them. They are also generally a little longer and a bit more structured. It is considered a faux pas to wear a suit as either an odd jacket or odd trousers. As in, you shouldn't wear your suit jacket as a blazer and the suit trousers without the matching jacket. Personally, I don't find wearing the pants as just dress slacks is particularly egregious.
The first thing is what I meant with my last thing. And I think that it's not quite the faux pax it used to be, especially since the thighter style now in vogue have made them approach each other.
But I guess it's a case by case basis kind of thing; my own suit jacket works quite well as a blazer, but I imagine other models don't. And maybe people's build are to be taken into account as well? Not entirely, but they're really not very versatile for combining with sports coats.
It can look ok with certain shades of brown perhaps. If the jacket has blue patterning it can also bring it together a bit - brown tweed with a blue windowpane perhaps. Khaki can work but wouldn't be my go-to. Light blue jackets work well with navy trousers, as discussed in the post. Thanks - it's a bit pricey for a tie alas, poor student here , but I might consider some of their bowties instead, it is impossible to find any good ones around here.
TheTieBar is an excellent site to buy ties from. It suffers both from the general style of jeans and all of the regular problems that navy odd trousers suffer. I like your jacket for jeans, but I can't get past the silk tie and jeans combo. I think if you ditched the tie and switched the shirt to an ocbd that'd be a great look. I purposefully left out jeans because adding them pushes the outfits in a rather different direction and aesthetic, and is certainly less "safe".
It's easy to look bad doing it. The rest of the outfit should also adapt accordingly. Personally I'm not a particularly big fan of sports jackets and jeans in combination despite the fact that it's perfectly valid. How can a shirt be too much? I've always found blazers and sportcoats too work much better with shirts than with tee's or other options Might just be that i misunderstood what you meant there, and that it's not too much with a shirt, like a plain shirt or something similar, but with that shirt Vest is way too much, maybe a slightly different tie or no tie, but it's so edgy I can't help but like it.
I may be misremembering, but I think I remember seeing the guy in the photos on tumblr and I think he made that tie himself - so it's not just adding personality, it's a literal personal touch. A silk tie and jeans isn't the greatest thing, and then on top of that the jacket here looks an awful lot like a suit jacket to me.
If this were a more casual jacket say a tweed, or something very Italian and unstructured plus a more casual wool or knit tie, I think that would be lots lots better. A button-down collar might also help, but is a detail most people wouldn't notice. I don't wear ties with jeans. I gathered that to be the general consensus here on MFA a rule made to be broken, maybe? Problem, of course, is that jeans are inherently casual, tie inherently dressy--they're on the opposite ends of the spectrum so it can easily look incoherent.
But I personally think if you can bring those two ends closer together, it can work. Silk tie and suit jacket, as seen in the pic, definitely not. But like a knit tie, buttondown shirt, and cotton blazer with soft shoulders? Not the worst thing in the world, I don't think.
The tie sucks in general, but especially with the look. Reminds me of express. Everything else is great. I thought Glenn Howerton from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia sported it pretty nicely in this episode pictured on the right here. Jeans and blazer are pretty common in Europe and I don't think they clash that much. But applies here doesn't necessarily apply in the US. Thanks for the writeup. Although our styles are different, I was hoping for a bit of advice if you are willing to jump out of your comfort zone for a second.
I am a denim guy at the moment currently breaking in my first pair of raw, which I'm wearing every day. I live in Florida, so looking for things to wear when it gets Florida chilly which is not very chilly You say charcoal may not work well with denim, but was wondering what you thought of a blazer like this with denim? Sorry, the picture of the blazer doesn't show for me - no idea why not. Those are nice looking jeans. Maybe a direct link to the picture will work.
I see it now, thanks! My opinion is that it wouldn't look good over denim, especially dark denim. It's more rock-star than anything, and I wear it as such. But with my pierced ears and medium-length hair, I think it works. I might look pretentious, but c'mon, a rock star does look pretentious! I've done it in my past here. What's the difference between flannel trousers and the regular wool trousers that came with my suit? When I think if flannel, I think of Seattle grunge. Although when most people especially those without much knowledge of classic clothes say "flannel" they mean as you say, cotton flannel, usually with a plaid pattern.
In this instance I'm talking about solid gray wool flannel. The nice thing about it is that the softness and especially texture of the flannel wool sets it apart from whatever's up top. They're probably one of the best choices for semi-formal trousers in the winter they can be quite warm. The difference between them and your wool suit pants, is that likely your suit is a worsted wool rather than flannel. Worsted wool has a smooth outer surface, unlike the soft texture of flannel.
I just got this and think it would go really well with some gray flannel or wool trousers. Now I just need to find me some!
I am a fan of two things not covered by this list, and figure I should bring them up specifically fabrics. I love my tan camelhair sport coat. I can pair it with jeans and a polo for more casual outings, or a button-up, tie and navy slacks for the office. I think of it as an inversion of the classic, and more common, navy jacket with tan slacks.
Plus, it's the only big-name designer brand piece of clothing I own Burberry. I also enjoy my dark brown corduroy sport coat from Old Navy.
I worked there for a few years in high school, and was able to pick up a few great pieces as a result. The jacket is actually fairly durable, features surgeon's cuffs, and is fairly versatile.
Plus, since I am a more bulky guy, the lack of padding in the shoulders helps me slim down my look a little bit. Does anyone have any thoughts on how age comes into this? I'm a 23 year old and i think i'd look quite out of place if i showed up with a blazer for coffee. I think you'd be fine at 23 in a casual sport coat to a stranger. Now if you never dress like that people who know you may find it odd but that says nothing about the look just that it's out of character for you.
Since i started working a real job 5 months ago i've been able to afford nicer clothes and people have noticed a change in style. It's not that i've actually changed personally, i can just afford new clothes. Hell my last 2 years of college i think i bought 2 t-shirts and 1 sweater and thats it.
I've probably spent more money on clothes in the last 5 months than i have my whole time in college! That's partly because i needed a whole business casual wardrobe and that shit's not cheap. Slowly integrate formality into your wardrobe. I started out with polos and normal button down shirts and jeans, then went sweaters over button down shirts and sometimes chinos, then every once in a while I'll wear a jacket to the office. Sometimes later I'll wear it while in the office, too.
It helps people adjust. I currently work for an IT company and we're all IT or web developers. In fact 'the suits' are the nickname for people that come from DC as they're the only ones in suits. That's one of the more annoying things about entering your mids and deciding to dress better. All your friends who are still wearing tshirts and jeans and flipflops will comment on your clothes every time they see you for a long time.
And it's usually not "you look great" but "what are you so dressed up for? I'm 20 and thinking of getting some more blazers into my wardrobe, but mostly for the summers when I'm in NYC. I think it's a matter of confidence and what kind of stuff you are doing. I'll be mostly going to restaurants, events, dates, etc.
Because I'm 20 and in the city, dating is a bit tricky and I generally lean towards older women just by a few years, It's not like I'm milf hunting. Please get a milf hunting sports coat. I was going to do a search for milf hunting accessories but that's a terrible idea while i'm at work.
Just wear it and you'll be more comfortable and feel more in place. People will get used to it too.
This is true for light-skinned, light-haired people. But for those of us with brown or darker skin and black hair, black clothing actually goes quite well as it highlights those features and doesn't wash out our skin tone. Black trousers and shoes with a black shirt with a charcoal jacket can be a very somber but still nice outfit, suitable for a nice dinner out or at a friend's house. Suitable for a club maybe Show pics of it being pulled off and I'll be amazed. I'd send pics of myself, but I am not in any decent shape.
If I come across something, I'll send it your way. Thanks for the great guide, Syeknom. I'm building the dressier side of my wardrobe, so I'm trying to pick up the most essential items first The next two dressy pieces I plan to purchase are this navy suit and this sportcoat in the effort to build some range colorwise. Is this the right way to think about it?
Or, were you to buy one more suit and one more jacket in the next year, is it better to start with the essential blue blazer? There is a good chance I'm overthinking this. The question is best answered by taking a look at your life and circumstances. What needs do you have for a suit? Do you require them for work? Do you want one or two around for interviews? Do you go to weddings? Buying a suit simply through the virtue of it being dressy is not necessarily the way forward.
However, having one good suit in your wardrobe is a great idea just for those few occasions when they are necessary - it's no fun scrabbling at the last minute to find something to wear to an important job interview, and your red suit won't quite cut it there! Solid navy is a great choice for a first suit and Suit Supply is definitely one the best options in the lower price brackets.
Their Sienna model is very interesting: High button stance, soft sloping shoulders, ticket pocket and a more delicate S's wool all give it a very distinctive look and edge. Personally I think the Siennas are at their best for events rather than office-wear but it's not a bad option in any case. Certainly professional enough for most job interviews, and if you're young and slender it'll work well. The Ludlow sports coat is in much the same vein - trendy and designed for young, svelte people.
Here the lapels are razor thin, the cut-away of the jacket aggressive and the waist slim. Brown tweed is a great choice for a first sports jacket and it'll serve you well. I wouldn't overthink things with your jacket purchases - there's no need to own a navy blazer I don't actually.
Their virtue is their versatility: Thanks so much for such a detailed response! The suit is actually medium grey, the line is just named "Alfani Red. Again, thanks for giving your opinion on the appropriate occasions for each piece. I think that a lot of the time that premeditated idea doesn't make it from merchandise planning all the way to the website copy.
Can I have you guys' opinion on wearing T-shirts under a blazer? That's what I usually do. You have to go one way or the other on this one. Thanks for your time and advice but I'm wondering is this just a personal opinion of you? So I'm wondering if it really looks that bad. Yes, it's an opinion that I personally hold, and an opinion shared by many others here as well. That said, you can do it, as it's college and the standards for looking good are very low, but would you wear that look as an adult out to the bar?
I don't think you would, as it just isn't a very fashionable look. You can be fashionable without wearing a blazer, and the look will be more congruous because you aren't trying to "dress down" an inherently dressier item. It depends on where you're from. On the east coast it's laughed at, but it may well be at home in LA. Although many consider it a "bad" look, I personally don't. A solid colour v-neck white for an example doesn't necessarily look bad.
Here are a couple of examples 1 , 2. It is more of a summer look and athletic body structure is preferred. Another casual look could be achieved with a henley underneath. There is a thread about dressing down a blazer, it is informative and interesting. Do not take all advices here to heart, people tend to have different tastes, likes and personalities.
Should I really only wear solid color shirts - of which I own black or white? Can I wear stripes? I'd skip the black shirt. Stripes are okay but with jeans your shirt fabric should be more casual.
Oxford, poplin, or chambray for instance. That's as much so, or more important than color. And brown shoes are a yes. This came at a perfect time. I'm looking for something to get for my dad, who isn't particularly stylish.
I think he has all the basics, but I'd like to try something that could bring it all together. He's short 5'6, I think and not really in shape, but if I wanted to get him something along these lines I think something like 8 in the olives or 13 in the browns , does anyone have any suggestions for where I could find one for a decent price?
Is no one else weirded out by the combination of cargo pants and a blazer? Are cargo pants somehow back in style? Thank you for this. Come on man, tweed with navy! It's not some great crime against fashion to wear them, they just combine with things worse than other colours and look less good. I integrated the ideas here into a Pinterest board I'm building.
It's a bit helpful I think to see everything side by side. This guide just gave me about 20 more combinations I would have never thought of in my current closet. And yeah, I need to buy some grey flannel trousers. Most importantly, pants are to tight, I dont want to see his package clearly though his pants. The upper half is just a little to matchy for me with tie matching the jacket and the shirt matching the pants. The peak fold on the pocket square just puts it over the top into anoying try-hard menswear stupidness.
That said, the shade of pants and the navy jacket look great together, but the outfit as a whole does not. This, and I also really hate the no-visible-socks thing that MFA seems to love lately. The fit, especially in regard to the short length of the pants, would look out-of-place in a lot of areas. The color scheme on the other hand, which is what Synknom was attempting to illustrate, looks fine to me.
It's a bit fashion-forward because of the green pants and tassel loafers, and a look like this is obviously not for everyone. But I do think it works and looks pretty good on him because fit and proportions are perfect, allowing him room to play around with expectations - in this case subbing in the green pants instead of grey or khaki to give a very different feel to the outfit than normal.
The tassel loafers serve to take it even one step further away from what's expected, while still feeling congruous in formality to the top half, sort of tying everything together. Feel free to disagree, but please don't come into threads and say "this shit does not look good" without explaining why.
That isn't useful or interesting. If you have some greater wisdom on this matter, please share it with us - or feel free to keep your opinions to yourself if you don't feel like explaining or at least expressing them politely. I wasn't trying to be helpful. I was trying to be critical, and instill some doubt in OP's credibility.
