    Obviously, RRL makes tons of "sportsjackets" that can be or are specifically meant to be worn with jeans/as streetwear.

    Love this thread. Had actually been considering this look, but wasn't ballsy enough to try something on my own. Definitely getting some great ideas from here, just worried about making that first purchase and having things not fit as I want...

    Would completely unstructured be the way to go for broader shoulders? (Don't know if anybody saw WAYWT over the last week).

    Just curious.. what sort of belt will compliment these? I'm guessing grey suede?

    Depends on the color, material, silhouette. Definitely a casual belt. I have a black/brown Margiela double ring belt that goes with most things. I have a dark blue Barena jacket which is ridiculously easy to compliment, colorwise, but the dark green one is more of a challenge. You definitely want something dove grey or black toned with it. The Richard Geller and the Wings+Horns cargo jacket are both black, so anything with a black tone works. I personally like belts that have some character of their own. The Margiela belt I was just talking about, for example, is made from interesting leather, and each ring also has little nuts and rings around them, like a bangle of some sort. Or I like the distressing of an Alexander Fielden belt. For some of them, a worn down, scratched up, bridle leather belt works well also.

    I'm a believer in "the comfortable wardrobe", in that I think that each thing that you own should feel like yours, something you've worn for years, not a museum piece. I am not, however, a proponent of the "minimalist" wardrobe. That's good for monks, but not for people who love clothes.

    Unstructured can worn for anyone, it's just a matter of how it fits. Generally, if you are broadshouldered but tall and lanky, you can go drapey, and things can look great. If you are not, either you need some serious swag, or you should get things that are fitted, because otherwise, you can look like a sloppy bag.

    Re: shoulders and fit, when I bought the mentioned harris tweed jacket, the store guy was "shocked" how wide my shoulders and upper chest was, and he wanted me to try on stuff like L.B.M 1911 for giggles. Size 54 looked shrunk/ Pitti gone mad. So unlined isnt fool proof, but sure beats a highly structured shoulder. One thing Ive come to appriciate is jackets that are long enough in the body, even if they are to be worn casually. If you are tall, dont do that that short/shrunk look imo.

    Parker, do you ever wear cord or tweed jackets?

    Parker post that purple corduroy suit you have!


    I agree with this, and I think it's also why t-shirts tend to look better with casual jackets. Untucked dress shirts usually hit right around where the jacket ends which tends to be a very unflattering look. I think you shirt needs to be longer than the jacket (EG, Yohji) or visually shortened by tucking it in to achieve good balance.

    These look great IMO.

    I am planning on wearing blazers more often with my commonly themed button down, chino's/denim, sneaks/brogues outfits.

    A couple of shots where I have actually worn a blazer.

    Obviously still learning to get proportions right. Very interested to see how this thread takes off.
