Is it ok to wear a pair of pinstriped pants with a non-striped jacket? Or vice versa?

My only caution would be to be sure that the colors of the jacket and trousers are sufficiently different to avoid looking like they're simply mismatched. E.G., no charcoal pinstripe jacket with solid black pants, etc. Purely as a matter of personal preference I eschew pinstriped odd jackets, but I do have some pinstriped odd trousers that I like.Originally Posted by lawyerdad
So you are saying don't even try to match them? Make them totally different so people know you are purposely going for that look? What would be an example you could give me, lawyerdad?
Are you under the impression that it only works on one direction? For example. I have a friend who was he wears pinstriped jackets with solid pants all the time but never the other way around.
Well they aren't really suit jackets. They are labeled as blazers or sport coats. Is there a difference between those and suit jackets?
Oh, I guess I was reading too much into the post immediately preceding mine. If they're designed as separates, then I suppose so much the better. Probably still intended for a funky casual look, though, and probably best not paired with competing stripes. In my opinion. But I'm an old fart.Originally Posted by Margaret
