    Hi,

    This is my first post. It’s also the first time I plan on wearing a blazer.

    It’s a dark blue, lightly patterened jacket, which (in my opinion) fits me reasonably well. But I am aware of its downsides. Although it’s not a “classical navy blazer,” the typical matching trousers would be khaki (and gray, but I’m not a big fan of the blue-gray combination).

    Now, I’ve heard that wearing an odd, blue jacket with blue trousers is generally a bad idea, but I happen to have very dark, “midnight blue” chinos and decided to post that combo here.

    In my opinion, the dark blue chinos match the blazer just fine. But does it look like I’m trying to “fake” a suit? What do you fine gentlemen think about this?
