This jacket that AlanC is selling would be perfect with jeans.

I think it has very little to do with his condition and more to do with his general rebellious attitude. Tell House to treat a patient one way, he treats them another. Tell House to wear a lab coat, he ignores you. I'm sure the same is concerned when asked to dress professionally; he dresses how he wants to dress.

I also think House's wardrobe works for him. Many here agree on the topic that wearing suit jackets with jeans looks like you're trying to hard; I disagree. If it works for you, it works for you. 99.9% of people don't give a damn if you wear a suit jacket or a sport coat with jeans. Arguably, wearing anything beyond your regular parka or zippered hoodie or jacket is going to show you have some style and give more than 2 cents about your appearance.

Would have loved to take a look at what it was but he took the pics down...

Reviving this thread...

How well would a coat like this work with dark jeans - or are there better alternatives:

Why not? I do it all the time:



How about white jeans?

What I don't understand even more is people on here insisting to tuck in shirts with jeans, if you want to look 50 then maybe, otherwise just no.

Let me help you with that.

It's as basic as wiping your nose.

It can be as basic as it wants but it'll always look crap on most people.

It all depends on the blazer right?

If the blazer is pretty formal looking, it doesn't mesh well w/jeans
no matter how nice they are.

But some blazers can play that dual role.

I'm wearing a blazer, button shirt, jeans, and loafers today. It's a nice
casual look

maomao's top pic looks good. I think you have to be slim to carry off this jeans and odd jacket look well. The overall grooming has to be good too.

It all depends on the fit of the jacket and the person wearing it. I just wore a really nice grey jacket from my three piece with a v-neck over a dress shirt and my lucchese cowboy boots. If they were ugly boots, the jacket didn't fit, the jeans were baggy, or I wasn't the right look (some people just don't look good in certain things) then it would be bad.

And untucking a dress shirt looks better than tucking it into anything just because you think it can't be untucked. Again, it goes back to the fit. Not some yes or no rule. I can't stand seeing someone tuck a dress shirt into a pair of jeans, regardless of how well the fit is. Unless you wear a sweater over it.

Huh?

I think it looks a bit goofy with a longer jacket, like the first of the two pictures above. And the stripe on the jacket just makes it looks like it's missing the pants. The second jacket looks a little shorter and appears solid, and I think it looks good, (especially with the white jeans).

So, like other people said - more modern/less classic solid jacket and this looks fine.

It is an awful mixing of casual and formal that makes the wearer look indecisive. It is the mullet of clothing choices: business up top, party down below.
