    Hello all,

    First date after a 5 year relationship ended last year. I want to look nice. I haven't dressed up in a long time! So far I have got everything but the sport coat (I browsed the forums last night for help). Can anyone recommend a matching sport coat for this setup I've got going? It doesn't have to be perfect, just passable. This is not a fancy restaurant.

    (In case you can't tell, I haven't gotten laid in a LONG time lol).

    Clarks shoes. They looked nice. Wanted to try brown.

    Slim fit dark denim. I'm tall.

    It's baby blue. I thought it "brought out my eyes." (I gave myself a douche chill saying that).

    Does it work?

    Thanks!

    Actually, I think that jacket is not a bad choice for the outfit you've already put together. Truth be told, you'd be better off finding a jacket that's just navy blue, with brown buttons, and patch pockets instead of flap pockets. Just an idea. Or getting a pair of nice shoes, that is what I would suggest first. Also, if you think you are supposed to be dressing nice for this date, then blue jeans are not the way to go.

    I would actually go for a lighter coloured sports coat to contrast the dark blue jeans and blue shirt... And probably find some nicer shoes. Just my 2 cents. Maybe a light brown sports coat.

    Jeans are fine, shirt is fine, shoes are not
