Neapolitan cuffs, I like :) (I hate French cuffs...)

 

 

 

I think this looks pretty good, but the light brown shoes distract from the dark and conservative nature of the rest of the fit.

AAS, these aren't in your budget, but you'd be buying from the SF Community and I think they're good value for $400 or so:

 

 

Contact SF Mmber "HandMadeShoes" aka Justin, via his blog.

 

Those are cool, but I prefer these.  They're also $400.

I like this jacket and pant combo.  I think the shirt is what is holding it back.  A white shirt would blend better with the jacket and pants and cause the tie to stand out more, providing the necessary contrast.

thanks, AAS. interesting perspective. i think the risk there is all the light gray together with the white ending up looking very washed out.

also, i am under threat of death from gdl if i ever wear an odd jacket with a white shirt again. cold[1].gif

Sometimes you guys say things and I have no idea what you're talking about.  First, this whole notion about navy blue odd pants not being awesome is dumbfounding to me.  I wear navy blue pants all the time and think they're amazing.  I'd love to see some pictures where they don't work.  Just like a navy blue blazer is a classic jacket, I see navy blue pants as being just as classic. Second, what is all this business about grey sport coats being wack.  Again, I'd love to see a fail there as well.  Pairing a grey SC with grey slacks is silly, because the colors are too close.  Navy, beige and/or cream pants to name a few works well IMO.  If I get a minute I'll find some pics.  Ya'll crazy.  patch[1].gif

We are not saying they are off limits, just hard to do right.

The one lesson here is to not buy a "medium" gray SJ, especially one with no texture interest.

Okay, no texture-less gray SCs is something I can get behind. As aravenel says, the no-gray sportcoat rule fails the "gray herringbone tweed is awesome and goes with errythang" test.

 

Stitches, have you tried that coat with dark gray trousers? I could also see tan, brown, or even cream gabs working here.

SF surely gets all worked up about grey odd jackets, and I don't see why, they're honestly not that hard to pull off in real life. Sure, a navy jacket might be easier, but sometimes people want some variety in their wardrobe. It would be really boring if we'd all be wearing navy odd jackets with mid grey trousers.

The trouser pairing is only part of it--a great number of grey SCs look like orphan suit coats. There are far fewer workable SC patterns in grey IMO.

Really, aside from the blue blazer, brown is where it's at for SCs IMO. You're going casual already, go all the way.

As long as you make sure the grey SC has some texture, an interesting pattern or is made of a fabric not typically used for suits you'll be fine. Brown jackets certainly look great, but it can be harder to pull off for younger guys like myself, as it's not a typical color for people my age.

Algebra 2 final exam today. I had to abandon my jacket when I went around to collect books.  I hope none of the students mistook me for a cellphone salesman.  smile.gif

there is much craziness on SF. absolutes are too easily thrown about. as the discussion furthers, we can see that most agree there are applications for both, its just a metter of honing in on what they are.
