Thanks much. They're great jeans. I may try jeans + tweed sportcoat soon to see how I like it.

Okay, I've decided I agree with you about the belt. It didn't work. The sweatshirt is a nice piece that I really like. It's really too long to leave untucked (I've tried it). It might not have been the best choice with the other elements here, though.
As for the jeans being too high I really am wearing these at the hips. I can't really see how they could go much lower. Maybe I still don't have the feel for it yet.

Yeah, the cuffs aren't exactly to my liking, either. I probably will get these hemmed a little later on. Should I go with taller/flatter cuffs in the meantime?
Thanks for the comments from everyone. I suspect I'm never going to satisfy everyone with what I'm doing, but also recognize a lot of it can be done better.
