How does it look at the back without a jacket covering your behind?

What's this about exposing yourself in pants? Oh my shog[1].gif

I am not planning on doing odd trousers/jackets but just planning on getting some beater trousers for days when I don't feel like wearing a suit. 

 

So on those days you wear a tie with no jacket?  I have to say that this is not a look that I am a fan of - jacket doesn't necessarily need tie but I feel that tie definitely needs jacket.

Side adjusters are more functional. Belts do not have small increments like side adjusters do. Thus, if your're in between sizes, Side tabs/adjusters are better

Plus, I've never followed the rule that belt color must match with shoe color so I don't need to even think about it the slightest when the belt is completely gone.

Dunno about this. I cannot abide black belt with brown shoes or vice versa. OTOH slavish matching of exact colour and texture can come off a bit too try-hard.

 

Wearing pants with belt loops but no belt - well, I know a lot of people do this. Even some SF cognoscenti. To me however, it's definitely on the #armoury side. Possibly a bit too #menswear. Maybe even (dare I say it) slightly #hipster.

Noodles, you need to get a staple navy blazer.  You'll be able to wear it with most of the odd trousers and ties you want to wear.  You can also wear it for more casual fits that do not involve a tie.

Just picked this one up. :slayer:

Regarding navy blazers, 3 is a magic number (in my opinion).

Why?

Don't like your green SC, looks very dated, IMO
Also, DB and notch lapels don't go together...

Just in case if the others are being dry cleaned and pressed.

 

I know it looks dated, but I can pull it off.

 

Notch lapels? You must be looking at the wrong jacket..

post #8188 of 37395
Well, they're sort of in between lapels then. wink.gif
I'd like to see a fit pic of how you pull it off...

I suppose one plain wool, one flannel and one linen? It depends entirely on your needs and climate of course. One or two navy sportcoats should be enough for most people.  

 

Agreed on the green sportcoat, the cut doesn't look very nice, and I can't see that shade of green being worn outside of the golf club. Bottle green or olive can be nice, but this is just meh. It might be better to stop buying all these coats in weird colours just because it's a good deal and save up for one or two versatile ones in a nice cut.

i too am not a fran of the SC. very dated looking.

i only have one navy SC right now, in the process of adding a second.
