I'd say go for it if you buy the trousers that go with it. This is clearly a suit jacket and should never be worn with odd trousers.

Yup, striped SC without matching pants is a super advanced level of difficulty - and there are some that say it never works.

No matching pants option, I'm afraid. That's why I was thinking I could pull it off with jeans, but you're right in that no trouser/dress pant will ever match this. I just thought jeans may be nice for when I'm casual.

Yeah, that's why I'm asking. I cannot imagine a way to pull it off.

Some say that striped SC with no pants is an even more difficult one, achievable only by unlocking the SC with non-matching pants tier.

One might say those some are never wrong :stirpot:

Haha, this is why I'm here. You're all awesome. Jacket is a no go.

Haha, but I love peak lapels (because I'm secretly a charismatic villain). I'm actually curious about the ticket pocket. Why not?

I'd say look past the intended purpose and look at how you would like to use it.

 

Looks to me like a good fit to me, but hard to tell since you do not have it done up. Then again, I'm fairly new to this as well.

Related to above I'm getting a flannel navy bold chalk stripe single button blazer suit with peak lapels.

Wish me luck.

fwiw I plan to wear it with white trousers; I think jeans would be highly incongruent and one of those fashion things that most people just look trash in them including most fashion people or celebrities.

It just looks too much like you were wearing jeans and threw on the closest jacket, whereas an outfit that harmonises more indicates intent, which makes breaking of rules more feasible IMO.
post #37093 of 37396
Agreed. Going to try it again with a jacket and see how I feel. I think I like it for either purposes.

Get both???

What in the world are you talking about?

post #37095 of 37396
I believe in it. You'll see in 2 months time.
