Geez, 3 hours on this site and already I'm looking at pictures of myself and noticing some horrible fashion mistakes. This Armani is one of my favorite jackets, but probably cause I only have two and the other one was part of a $200 suit on sale at Meier & Frank (now Macy's). Anyways, what would you guys pair this with?

Its matching trousers maybe?

Sorry, couldn't resist


But seriously, trousers if you like them, but for going out and situations like in the picture - jeans.
Just have a "dressy" pair of jeans, good shoes (which match your belt) and a nice shirt. Stripes are acceptable because the jacket is solid.

Jeans.

Orphaned suit jackets look best with jeans, trousers seem a little off unless its a sportscoat.

I'm new here, but I'll offer my opinion...

Perhaps darker jeans and a lighter shirt?

Other that the clothing...I think the girl pairs up nicely, but I would switch the budweiser for a miller high life.

I think it looks pretty bad with light jeans and a dark striped shirt. Agree with the above poster who said darker jeans and a light shirt might be better.

I agree with darker jeans and a lighter shirt. Also a good pair of brown leather shoes.

Thanks for the tips guys, I knew it just didn't look right. I'll try a lighter shirt and darker jeans next time, though I think those A-Pockets might be the darkest I own. I love the overall look of dress shirt, jacket, and jeans, it really 'fits' my personality and style, but I knew something was kinda 'off'.

As for the girl, that's my lovely girlfriend of 3+ years; she's a good one. I always tease her by saying "Just because you worked at Sak's doesn't mean you have good fashion sense". You should have seen some of the designer disasters she's brought home


Pics attached.
