    A general question that I want to ask is: is it okay to wear suede bomber jacket with a dress shirt, tie, and trousers - as well with formal shoes? I know wearing a bomber jacket is casual and that's my approach to this outfit, a semi-casual. What are your thoughts?

    If not wearing a tie, I'd say it's tolerable. Not ideal, but not glaringly awful.

    If wearing a tie, you ought to be wearing a jacket - sportscoat or suit coat - as well, and wearing a suede bomber jacket over a suit or sportscoat would not be something I'd recommend.

    Seems fine to me in a look book sense. I see it a lot in Ralph Lauren look books and Burnello Cucinello. I would wear it to work but even a tie is a bit dressed up there.

    Edit: forgot I was Men's Clothing.
