If a solid, dark gray. (The tie should be darker than the shirt, navy would be blue overkill, and a livelier color could clash with the shirt.) If patterned, plaid is rather trendy and then a subdued one of those is likely to be okay. Other patterns might work.

Constructive criticism is welcomed...Mimo or Michael.

....I am gonna get crucified ...$#!T

I really don't think that's bad. The fit is pretty good from what I can see. You'll get shit for the white shirt and possibly the lapels though.

What tie is that? From this distance with that camera, it looks like a $5 generic shiny silk tie.

 

Mimo can't say too much about that fit I don't think. :-P

LOL - I don't know whether to blame the dang camera or not but that tie is a Brioni. FML

Yeah blame the shaky camera and the dirty mirror. Plus, I'm not good at telling brands. Especially since, to me, from that distance, one plain tie is just like another plain tie.

Also, I'm digging the collar on that shirt.

 

I need to buy a white shirt. At least one.

Hi all, this is my first post after tons of lurking trying to get myself educated - this forum has been a huge help!

 

I'm 23, about to start my first "real job" a job at a consulting firm and I've been slowly building up my work wardrobe. I saw this sportcoat (or is blazer more appropriate?) at Nordstrom Rack the other day and it fit me very well, at a decent price, but I'm not sure if it's worth keeping. 

 

I'm not sure how versatile it will be. I couldn't wear most grey pants with it, leaving me with less options. Navy might work, or maybe black, but I can't really tell -- it looks a bit weird with black pants + black shoes. Maybe I'm just being a noob though.

 

I'm also not sure if it would look too much like a suit jacket that I decided to wear with non-matching pants. 

 

I just don't know enough about style to see if its worth having at this stage in my life. 

 

What do you guys think? Useful, or superfluous?

I'd save the money and just get a nice suit.

Looks like an orphaned jacket. I'd return it and get something elsewhere. A navy blazer is a great choice. I skipped the navy and got a blue houndstooth linen as my first jacket. I now have a navy blazer and will be ordering another one with possibly the exact same fabric shortly, just a different style.

 

Grey is not a versatile jacket color compared to brown or navy.

 

And what size is that?

 

Navy pants are frowned upon but it doesn't mean to never do it. Black pants are frowned upon and you should never do it. You can wear your many greys with a navy blazer.

Also, that jacket looks awful.
