    Yeah, just not in this case. Seriously, nothing wrong in my mind with pairing a sport coat with jeans, but this is obviously a suit coat, and just does not work very well with the jeans, at least to my eye. Probably the pattern and fabric that makes this incongruous with denim.

    Steven Tyler can do it with that kind of jacket, but....not many others.

    Thank you. The brand name is Seraphin - my last two sets of specs, I've been channeling my inner New England WASP :D.

    I saw only the picture I referenced. I accept his assertion that they are not Merrell-ish IRL, but did agree with the commenter's take on that particular picture.


    I didn't notice his soul patch. I'm not sure I know what the fuck I'm on about, so your confusion is probably warranted.

    I normally wouldn't do the orphan jacket thing either but I like this. I suppose this goes to show that if you've got a good frame and dead-on fit then you can pretty much get away with almost anything.

    This should get more love. Not because you're a fellow Swede, but because this is a nice colour combination. The fit is hard to tell when you're sitting down though. As for brass buttons and silver watch+belt buckle, IMHO there should be a limit as to how much of a f**ck you should give about stuff (can easily look overthought).

    Thank's for the response!
    Those are C&J Connaughts, guess I was wiggling my foot or something because it sort of came out of focus.
    Well... I am wearing brown shoes (Hah!). Thank you though.
    As for myself, I tend not to care too much. If it feels well, I'll go for it. But it's always fun to know other well-dressed think about it.
    Thank you for the keen words though, as for the fit; flawless :laugh:

    Sunny but cool day in MI. Casual errands this morning then work in the afternoon. Nothing special under the jacket, just a jcrew waffle thermal.

    :embar: no haha. just a bag my parents got me for my graduation from undergrad a few years back. Likely from Macy's or something. I polish the leather and keep it nice and the quality is decent. I will probably never replace it for sentimental value.
