So anything at all? I mean I wear jeans mostly. Kind of navy blue jeans.

Anything that would actually work better than what I already have?

Edit: I'm more or less worried about the colour, really. Not so much the style.
Please consider asking this question in the Streetwear & Denim side of the forum. Here in Classic Menswear people tend to be more interested in clothing that isn't "jeans mostly".

I've tried in there, but as far as I know there isn't a thread like this nor is anyone able to even see/answer my questions on there, sadly. This is kind of the last try for me.

 

 

Edit: Doesn't have to be jeans. Just looking for colours that would compliment the coat.

 

 

Edit 2: So after some thought, I've decided to stick with Jeans and have decided that light (but not too light) blue jeans are the best way to go.

It's charcoal gray, it matches damn near everything. That is why people buy coats in that color.

Maybe it's iffy with dark brown, or navy, but other than that let it rip. Even if you wore it over charcoal trousers that didn't match exactly I can't imagine you would catch too much flack, it's a coat ffs.

Don't wear it with your tuxedo, don't wear it with your gym clothes, don't wear it in the summer; otherwise, go for it.

This is like asking what matches a white OCBD.

You have two options:

1) Get it dry cleaned every couple of interviews if you sweat in it a bunch and it gets gross.

2) Get another suit...

 

Clothes are for wearing. You bought something to wear it to interviews, then wear it to interviews... If you're worried people will think it's the exact same one then:

1) Mix up the tie/shirt/shoes you wear

2) Get another suit.

2) Don't be silly.   You're going to a job fair; you want to look like a serious and ambitious employee, not Justin Bieber.  And your suggestion of a "black vest" alone will make you look like a waiter.  They can ask you to fetch the drinks while they talk to the people they actually want to hire.

 

Wear a suit.  Navy or charcoal, plain or pinstriped.  A burgundy tie, plain or with a small patter, at least 2.5" wide and preferably nearer 3-3.5".  Navy tie is good if the suit is charcoal.  Shirt is light blue, white, or a blue micro stripe, with a spread collar.  PS is none, or white, and barely showing.  Shoes are black captoe oxfords.  Yes, it's predictable, and yes, a lot of other people will be dressed the same.  Just as they will probably use the same font on their CV and not put a cute Minnie Mouse border on it.

 

Do the business uniform, and do it really well.

 

1) 60 bucks for a suit that fits decently? You'll start finding excuses to wear it. Def do it.

 

2) Agreed completely.

I brought a coat recently, it is dark charcoal grey like.

Like, I am wondering what kind of trousers/what style trousers to pair with this coat?

 

I currently own mainly jeans. Ranging from light blue to navy to black.

 

So what can I wear with these jeans safely? If you have any pics of the trousers, it would be great.

 

I really like that jacket. What brand/make is it? I might have to look for something nice/affordable in that style.

 

Re: Trousers? I would do everything. It's about as versatile as you can get. I'd go khaki, navy, rust, black, red, blue, salmon, whatever. Just wear it. Jeans are fine too, but you should wear it with more than that. If you just wanted a jacket for jeans then I would have picked something else.

I agree with everything, except that I might wear it with Navy depending on the style of pant and what shoes it's paired with.

Good talk.

Is navy wool jacket, purple university striped OCBD shirt and navy knit tie a bad combination?

post #24128 of 33197
Almost certainly yes. I say this with 97.993% certainty having not seen the garments.

Ok, thanks for replying.

 

Would it be better if I just wear the shirt with the jacket?

I just don't see that going... Purple and navy? Depends on the hue's a LOT. I wouldn't do it.


Personally, my rule of thumb is to dress everything else down if I'm wearing something that's a little over the top. I'm currently wearing red pants, but I'm wearing a black sweater, blue OBDC (unbottoned), and silver tie to even it out.

Purple and blue are generally not friendly towards each other. Purple with black or gray is much safer.

I just got a new Panama hat (cream colour, black band) today:

But, I have no idea about what clothes to go with it. I'm from Australia and it's been really hot weather recently. What kind of clothes are suitable to wear with my new hat? Will a short sleeved shirt in white or light blue or light pink with coloured bow ties and cream coloured trousers work?

 

Thanks for any help,

A wannabe Bustopher Jones

P.S. What coloured shoes would match my proposed outfit?

Is it easy for a tailor to raise the armholes on a flannel jacket? And if so, can someone recommend a good tailor in NYC?
post #24134 of 33197

I tried a suit on last week that I quite like. It was dark gray, notched lapels and with a double breasted waistcoat, also with notched lapels. The Issue is the waist coat is too long and the buttoning point seems a bit low. Can a waistcoat be raised so the that the buttoning point is higher?

Yes, it can be.  The tailor would have to take it apart, and remove material from the shoulders, I'm pretty sure, so it could be an expensive alteration.  I'd get a quote on that before making a decision on the suit.
