Advice on what to match with this loud jacket

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I've been nominated bartender of the year in australia and am attending a "Spring races" themed awards night

 

I've bought this jacket because i want to stand out but want some advice on what shirt and pants/chinos to wear and also a bowtie

 

Thanks

The proper match for it is a match.

But seriously, its god awful, but if you really insist on it, why not a pair of white chinos.  I think that'd look best, but its still a catastrophe - this way you might... and I want to stress, MIGHT, not get kicked out for wearing that.

Don't listen to the above responses
the jacket is perfect for the event and award.
it is a fun jacket for a fun event.

the white pants look great
maybe pick up the teal.
Navy will work if you want to tone it down.

look for a bowtie that can pick up a color in it
teal , navy, etc.
but do not match the shade of the tie to the pants

You might wanna mention this on the SW&D forum, as it's not exactly classic. I see a Hawaiian theme in the jacket. You might want to use that theme as a springboard for the whole outfit. Because of this pic, I'll be thinking luau all day! Pass the snout!

It´s way too short. Also loose the hankie or the ensemble will be too busy.

I bet it will look great ... on your wife/girlfriend.

A decent bonfire would be a good accompaniment.
