oh these are all just random jackets I'm playing around with, I wouldn't use a nicer suit for clubbing, although in the scene I hang out in, i'm not particularly worried about spilled alcohol/sweat etc.

Yeah...is this clubwear or datewear. I dont really like the white buttons on the shirt in that first picture. Also looks like a messy tuck job, but you may have been in a rush i dunno.

that brioni blazer is quite cartoonish. is it really purple or is it just the flash? it looks like something from the set of the warren beaty version of dick tracy.

Really? I always thought it was more euro-trash than AmJack.

To be honest I thought the buttonhole was just invisible in this photo. IT really doesnt have a bottom button?

Hey Drizzt,

Matching sportscoats with jeans is always dicey, especially if you are a bigger guy. However, some suggestions:

Wear a soft collar shirt in a lighter color, with a pattern. Troglodyte Homunculus, Obedient Sons, and Steven Alan are obvious choices. It makes the outfit a little more casual on top and people won't mistakening think that you are wearing jeans because someone retched on your other pants

Wear a thin tie, a knit tie, or a wool tie. Wear it loose, but not messy. Let it and the collar frame your face better.

Wear a jacket with a little more surface texture. Looks like you have lots of worsteds in there. That works if you can pull off a very slim blazer. Otherwise, use a twill, corduroy, or moleskin jacket.

Wear the Nudies a little lower. Hey don't have to hang way down, but you are too big of a guy to wear them tight (and you don't), but you probably want them about an inch lower than where they sit now.

Use a brown belt and shoes. It just looks so much better.

Yeah I like it with just the top button unbuttoned too, but someone had asked earlier in the thread. The Brioni blazer is mostly blue, with only the slightest hint of purple to it, but I like that a lot

Yeah it's weird like that, only two button but it basically sits as a 2 roll 3... thats why i buttoned the bottom one hehe, I guess I do like it more with it unbuttoned tho.

I like a lot of those ideas, I think some of the AE captoes, especially ones with a bit of shine to them, may work quite well for this look, and I have a couple other shirts that I want to try, especially the Band of Outsiders one I'm going to receive Monday.

I'd resell that Theory coat, because it just doesn't look good on you. Buttoned or unbuttoned. My favorite look on you is the unbuttoned JV sportcoat with an open collar, though I'm not sold on the balance of that jacket on you, either. I'd go with something more characterful. Such as one of the Oxxfords you're listing for sale...

I've seen RRDS look good and I've seen it look bad. Yours however are utterly horrible. They remind me of my old levi's 517.. BLARG

O, and it looks as if you have a little camelhoof going on around there.

Bubbly dude, you can criticize without harshing on the man. C'mon now, that was uncool.

I think they look exactly like everyone else's. If you don't like them to begin with that's fine but how do they look any different than the grip of others on this forum?

Oh, and LA Guy, that laundry list you wrote above was well executed. Good job.
