Well, given the pockets, the color, and the buttons, it'd look stupid to me if I saw someone wearing it with a tie and/or blazer.
It's the kind of shirt that'd strike me as being an odd choice for almost anything other than jeans.
Then again, I'm admittedly middle aged, inclined more toward classic Brooks Brothers than toward classic cowboy fashion, and I'm in Baltimore, MD, not Billings, MT. All of which could be relevant, if you're trying to figure out where and with whom you could pair that shirt with a tie and blazer and not look stupid.
True, fashion only advances when daring people challenge the rules. But bear in mind, for every 1 who challenges the rules and winds up being hailed as a visionary, probably 50 wind up being regarded as laughing stocks. Choose carefully which rules you wish to break, and how you wish to break them. Or just accept that some people may think you look stupid. Sure, you might not want the people important to you to think you look stupid, but if strangers think you look stupid, so what?
But I'm curious - Do you
think it'd look stupid wearing your shirt with a tie and blazer? I mean, you must have some opinion, even if you're looking for people here to either reassure you or warn you. So what do you think? (And, where are you? Alaska? NYC? Tokyo?)
