Rules on wearing a suit jacket with pants other then the suit pants?
I know this is typically something people should not due, but, what is the difference between a solid suit jacket and blazer/SC? What is the different between a slight pattern (faint light overcheck) suit jacket then a blazer with the same pattern?post #11359 of 3319712/3/11 at 3:08pm
And there is a long standing tradition of wearing an odd jacket with trousers. I like the practical aspect of it. Why throw away a good suit jacket just because the pants wore out? That said, the more sporty suit fabrics work best for this IMO.post #11360 of 3319712/3/11 at 3:36pm
So how would I know if my suit jacket would be able to be worn as a blazed also? Sorry for the vagueness of the question.Quote:Originally Posted by Steve Smith

The camel coat is definately very apropos right now, so if you try to stay trendy then you can't go wrong with camel. However, most of the camel coats that I've seen this season are single-breasted, not double breasted, so if you are trying to be right on-par with the trend then you might want to skip this ebay coat. If, on the other hand, you don't care THAT much about following current designers' whims regarding the number of buttons, then this looks like a good choice.
What is the price and label? It definitely has a vintage mien, so you'll stand out in a discerning crowd.post #11364 of 3319712/3/11 at 4:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by Scotty
What do you think of these shoes for fall/winter. The rubber heel is fine with me for the rainy weather I have here but I wonder about the color for those seasons.
I work at an office where men wear chinos/nice jeans/corduroys. My pants include tan/cream, olive and navy moleskins, medium grey flannels and sometimes medium dark jeans.
Thanks to all.
Seems to me that those shoes would go well with most of your pants and jeans. Just don't wear them with anything extremely dark (like a navy that is almost black).
Are these Allen Edmonds?post #11365 of 3319712/3/11 at 4:27pmpost #11366 of 3319712/3/11 at 5:03pmpost #11367 of 3319712/3/11 at 5:26pmQuote:
Sleeves are supposed to be long enough to cover your suit jacket sleeves when wearing a suit over it. Can you wear it with casual clothes? Depending on how casual, but if you are wearing "smart casual/business casual" then yes you can.
Post a pic/link of the coat (so we can see the formality of it and give you better advice about wearing it casually or not)post #11368 of 3319712/3/11 at 5:54pmpost #11369 of 3319712/3/11 at 6:15pmQuote:
It's more the fabric than the buttons (as you could always swap the buttons out). Suit fabrics tend to be more "refined", smoother, glossier, etc. It's sort of like pornography, you know one when you see it. There are some suit jackets that could pass as blazers, but they're fairly rare. Buttons are a good clue that a jacket is a orphan from a suit though.
Then again, the average man on the street would have absolutely no clue.post #11370 of 3319712/3/11 at 6:35pm
Well, it took me hours of effort (okay, 3 seconds googling "rubinacci pocket square"). Try http://www.marianorubinacci.net/eshop/product.php?id=543&lang=2
It's a neat pocket square, but at 70 Euros - call it about $94 - I probably won't be buying any.
