Gray suit jacket by itself? Need advice...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've got a thing tonight, and was wondering about something. I got two suits, a navy 3-button and a dark gray 2-button. The navy is not here right now its in my closet at home (I am at school). I dont want to go with a full suit tonight, but was wondering if I could wear the gray jacket with jeans and a nice shirt. I also have a corduroy jacket but its not as dressy obviously.

Would this work or should I forgo a jacket all together for a sweater?
Ive heard that a suit jacket alone is not a great idea, unless its navy.

Thanks.

I've done it with a gray suit jacket when the pants wore out. As long as it's not conspicuously unsolid, I think you can get away with it. But hey, what do I know.

The color doesn't matter, it certainly doesn't have to be navy -- stand-alone sport coats come in all colors, patterns, and so on.

If you pair it with the right things, you can make almost any one of them work.

Grey shouldn't be too hard.

Thanks guys, thankfully this is a solid coat so I think I have something brewing here laid out on my bed, not sure about the jeans though. I am afraid that jeans + tie = math teacher a la boy meets world

i think it looks terrible as a worsted, but it looks great as a woolen.

Go with the sweater, and put a tie on if you're trying to dress up.
