I think it's a great fit @Canadianguy

 

Nothing earth-shattering but it's a basic outfit done very well indeed.

You mean on the outfit? It's BB Red Fleece sweater and cords, PRL shirt, and Cheaney pebble grain longwings.

Thanks a lot, that's basically what I was going for.

Quick question for the Classic Menswear, Casual style dressers - would this car coat in a salt and pepper grey tweed look out of place with casual winter wear like jeans and sweaters? A more obvious choice would probably be a pea-coat but the double-breasted cut does little to flatter me.

@Lucido, there might be more people who know about wearing things with jeans over in the "Streetwear And Denim" part of Styleforum.

Trucker jackets are not just for truckers

Thanks. I had a look but it's not for me. I'd be just as likely to wear cords, heavy twill chinos & flannels with the coat - it's just that I'm not sure if it's a complete formality mis-match to wear it without a jacket underneath.

I wouldn't question a car coat layeed over a sweater and jeans in the least. As long as it doesn't look exceedingly long (even then it could work) I don't see why it wouldn't.

I'm not sure there is anything remarkable in this fit, but maybe that's the intention? The sweater is very drab and boring, and fit is a little boxy. If I were to wear this, I'd probably only do it under a vest or a coat, but never on its own. It just looks like the woolen version of all those soviet style buildings you see in pictures from the early 80s. Your jeans also fit a little too loose in all the wrong places. Shoes look alright though.

Nice, man. I love that you make those shoes work with a denim jacket.

Gerry, what are those trousers? Look really good here. I like a nice wool pair of gray trousers with casual wear too, but mine are molloy and a bit too heavy and serious I feel like.

@gnatty8Thanks for the critique. These days I am gravitating towards a more relaxed fit as I'm getting older and I can't stand clothes that are too slim, but it's always a fine line and I'm still learning. As for the sweater, I'm sorry it caused you so much displeasure.

Something super dressed down, but still within my "california summer style" that I've been doing lately.  

 

 

 

Spread collar polo, linen-cotton patch pocket jacket, and thrifted light wash denim! Bit of a high cuff, but its hot!

There are a lot of ways to wear jeans and sweaters and my $0.02 would be that this jacket would be coherent with some ways and not others. Would be great with slim denim and a pair of derby boots on a slimmish last. The hidden placket and relatively sleek overall look (judging from just a single pic...) would be a tougher match with more casual fits unless you were good at pulling that mixed style off. SW&D is going to be a better place to ask about how to hit that look.

@Gerry Nelson for a split second on first glance, given the gray-on-gray, I thought those pants were joggers. I wouldn't doubt that you could pull off even that most dubious fashion trend.

Thanks, man. You're too kind. I get much inspiration from the other posters in this thread.

Thanks! They are light grey cashmere flannel trousers by Panta. I snagged them about a minute after they got put up on the B&S forum - really glad I got them!

Ha! I doubt that. FWIW, these flannel pants feel like they could be used for lounging around the house - they're that comfortable.
