amazing shirt! Very nice countryside gentleman look. i even like the denim trousers. It's true that as they sayed there is a contrast between the informality of the cloth with the formality of the cut, but i don't mind it. it's different, but interesting. Iam of the opinion that pleats should go everywhere, so maybe i am not a fair judge 😅

I'm not so sure about this outfit. I like the overall impression, the colour combination, the strong contrast between the neutral beige of the jacket and the bold blue of the trousers, but (traditional) denim is not the best choice, as I see. I would replace it with cord, certainly the most traditional option, or with a kind of wool denim, as shown here:

I like that shirt, finally no button-down collar.

By the way, this denim jacket looks very good in my eyes, but I would be concerned how it will age.

it will crease and will fade. it's normal for denim. it's the same concempt of linen, no matter what it's going to wrikle. You have to like the look. i think the parisian gentleman's has a bespoke denim suit. i think could be a fun piece with an iteresting patina.

Yes, it probably will. I mean, would I like that look? Honestly, with all the cloth options you have for your tailored wardrobe, denim would not be among the first ones.

Beyond an aesthetic point, I would say that I understand the desire and the attempts to incorporate denim, the most used fabric in the world, into tailored clothing, but it goes against its nature, as it is eminently casual and suits work and casual wear.
