Ties without a jacket, with jeans. Needs a meme.

It can be done, but the jeans need to be dark and trim. I'd also only do it with a jacket, and opt for one that's a bit more casual or that has some texture, such a tweed. I don't think the tie needs to necessarily be skinny, but as previously stated, something sporty would work well. I do it all the time for casual outings, and usually layer it with a 1/4 zip or cardigan beneath the jacket. OCBDs work well here.

After reading through this thread, I decided to give it a try. Sorry for the messy hotel room, I am traveling about for business and I figured a customer site where I will likely never be seen again was a good place to try this out.

 

 

 

I am not a big fan of rules when it comes to men's fashion and I only care for the "does it work" factor. If at first glance I am bothered by my look, I will change it. This morning, I was on the fence, and I went for it. Thankfully it's chilly in Chicago at the moment, so I was covered up with a coat while in public. The office setting is primarily slacks/long sleeve shirt with some people adorning jeans. So far no comments on my tie or funny looks. A good portion of the men in the room have their crewneck undershirts showing, so I doubt they have a clue about what I am trying to pull off here.
