Help with jackets/blazers.......

So having recently turned 30 I have done away with my casual jeans and hoodies and started dressing smart/casual.

dark jeans or chinos with shirt and v neck are my staple.

I have always HATED jeans and a jacket but more recently have been drawn to thinking about it as an alternative to the shirt and v neck.

I reckon my hatred comes from people wearing suit type jackets which just doesn't work.
So my question is what type of jacket/blazer would work well??

I wear dark blue jeans or chinos and mid brown/tan shoes or grey suede brogues.

Just looking for inspiration please!!!!!

(Also, do I need to size up for a jacket? Especially if I'm wearing a jumper underneath???)

What pants color(s) goes with this shirt?

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

How much of a d**k will I be if I wear my own black shoes instead of the square toed ones the groom picked out for everyone? I'm one of 3 others standing next to him during his wedding. The suit is already bad enough (it fits me terribly, but I'm going to wear it).

Almost anything of a lighter or darker tone would work great. It's a very flexible color for a shirt.

I think the general response to such queries is that its his (and her) day and you should oblige. But given how awful square toes are, I'd try to find some excuse not to wear them (I got a blister while breaking them in, wife packed the wrong pair, etc).

Kudos on wearing the suit even though you don't like it.

I would go ahead and do it. If anybody complains, tell them that you tried the other ones on and they didn't fit quite right.

Looks legit to me.

It's likely a vintage piece; I don't think BB gets faked that much.

That's real. I can't tell you about how old it is, as I don't study BB's labels. I'd say somewhere in 2000's.

As long as your shoes are equal in formality I would go ahead and wear your own.

The jacket needs to be obviously casual, in a cloth with plenty of texture. This basically means tweed, or I suppose linen in the summer. It would help if the jacket has casual features like patch pockets, swelled edges etc. Black and white herringbone tweed would work with jeans and brown shoes, so would any kind of brown tweed. Grey suede brogues I'm not so sure about.

As for sizing, if you're new to wearing jackets, I recommend you stick to b&m shopping for now so you can try the jackets on in person. You shouldn't need to size up for a jumper ime.
