    I have personally come to the conclusion that a tie with jeans is just too incoherent. If you are somewhere where you can wear jeans, why are you wearing a tie?

    There are lots of casual pant options that are better than jeans but not to the level of formality of wool trousers that would work.

    If you're a super awesome cool dude, I imagine you will look great anyway, otherwise you risk looking like a doofus.

    To each his own regarding a tie with jeans and a jacket. If you wear a tie with jeans, you do it on purpose. Its an expression of personal style.

    I'm taking a new pair of LVC Levis 1947's to the denim tailor to be tapered. They will have will have a similar cut to @EFV 's pic, above, when done. Maybe a bit wider at the cuff but not much. They have the same high waist. The 1947's have been a longtime favorite cut of mine as well as their 1954ZXX which is a bit roomier in the thigh but with a more tapered leg than the '47.

    I was under the impression you could not tailor the seat of a pair of jeans because of the back pockets. However, after reading some things here and there, it would appear that I was wrong to think so. Can @Gus or anyone else share their knowledge of this?
