    If a denim suit and velcro shoes is worthy of being on a runway, you're more than golden wearing that jacket with jeans.

    This is impressive. While reading this, I honestly started considering pleated jeans until I remembered- they’re pleated jeans.

    In theory, I think double vents only belong on suits. In reality, I have plenty double-vented sport coats, especially in tweeds and corduroy. That jacket looks awesome.

    This is one of my favorite colors of corduroy to pair with jeans, especially darker ones. A dark suede shoe would really round out the outfit as well. For something even more casual a boot would look nice too.

    Agreed, I never single vent, ever.

    What is everyone thoughts on ties with jeans? Jason Chang does it and it always looks like it works great; Mashburn also looks good. I can't muster the courage to do so. I could potentially get on board with knit ties but even still it's a bridge I have yet to cross.

    Strongly depends on the tie imho. I think heavily textured is ideal

    I can only see this working well with thicker or textured ties — like knit ties or some woven wool ties.

    Knits and simple wool ties work with dark jeans. I also like muted colored silk rep ties in Fall and Winter such as this one by Drakes. (Spring and Summer I go lighter with linen, silk knits or brighter silk prints) freh.17706.002.jpg
