Help Needed. Sports Coat. Pics. Clueless.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

First date after a 5 year relationship ended last year. I want to look nice. I haven't dressed up in a long time! So far I have got everything but the sport coat (I browsed the forums last night for help). Can anyone recommend a matching sport coat for this setup I've got going? It doesn't have to be perfect, just passable. This is not a fancy restaurant.

 

(In case you can't tell, I haven't gotten laid in a LONG time lol). 

 

 

 

 

Clarks shoes. They looked nice. Wanted to try brown. 

 

 

 

 

 

Slim fit dark denim. I'm tall. 

 

 

 

It's baby blue. I thought it "brought out my eyes." (I gave myself a douche chill saying that).

Does it work? 

 

Thanks!

Where to start? .....

Actually, I think that jacket is not a bad choice for the outfit you've already put together. Truth be told, you'd be better off finding a jacket that's just navy blue, with brown buttons, and patch pockets instead of flap pockets. Just an idea. Or getting a pair of nice shoes, that is what I would suggest first. Also, if you think you are supposed to be dressing nice for this date, then blue jeans are not the way to go.

Are these shoes better with denim jeans?

I thought they might look a little too dressy with jeans.

I would actually go for a lighter coloured sports coat to contrast the dark blue jeans and blue shirt... And probably find some nicer shoes. Just my 2 cents. Maybe a light brown sports coat.

Jeans are fine, shirt is fine, shoes are not
