There's an Ask a Question thread right up at the top of the page dogg.

Also, don't do this.

Go to a jcrew store and ask one of the male SA's to put on a jacket. They're all basically dressed in jeans, button up shirt, skinny tie, and adidas sneakers.

you're doing it all wrong. you need a pink gingham shirt, the skinniest tie you can find, rolled levi's, and desert boots. throw any olive green jacket on top and preferably rock a faux-hawk. all jcrew'd out. bitches love jcrew.

the tie should be about the same width as the lapels on your blazer,

Harrington.

There are actually quite a few types of jacket you can wear with OBD shirt, skinny tie and jeans. Think 1960s and Mod. Harrington already mentioned. Any shell jacket which is slim and straight. Anything English, almost: Duffle, Gloverall, Corduroy jacket etc. Or (my favs) tweed sports jackets, just make sure they have narrow lapels, are slim fitting and not too long. Definitely not a 70s jacket, too waisted, pagoda shoulder line etc. Look up some Steve McQueen pics.

I would try to stay away from skinny ties and stick to SLIM ties. But if you must, try an get a Grey Herringbone blazer with soft shoulders for that casual look that you desire. Or, the classic, un-constructed Navy Blazer. Never go wrong. Hope this helped!

Yes good call - i tend to use "slim" and "skinny" interchangeably, but you don't want the keyboard tie look, nor the leather tie (which thankfully i resisted in the 80s).

Lads, a bit harsh on the tagline comment! I like your blog and fits.
