>wearing a blazer as ordinary day casual
do people really do this? like I get maybe putting one on when going to a restaurant or something or if your job requires it. but I'm talking about an ordinary day off where you plan on leaving the house
I mean, sport coats were always worn this way, so it doesn't seem that odd, but given that I live on the west coast, where dark jeans are worn as dress pants, wearing one out would depend entirely on what I was doing that day.
It is because you are focusing on the style instead of functionality. I don't have outerwear that isn't a jacket/blazer so of course I am going to wear it casually. All my important things are already in the pockets too.
>Blazer and jeans
Seriously if you do this, just off yourself. It looks fucking stupid. Just wear a pear of chinos or anything really, otherwise you will look a shit.
Also sports coat = yes for casual wear
The jacket from a suit = jump off a bridge
there's a line where things get hazy though - suits with varied fabric and contrasting buttons can often be worn with the jacket separately, and more casual fabrics like linen and cotton lend themselves really well to this
The problem isn't people wearing jeans and a blazer, the problem is they're wearing a very formal blazer, like a black pinstriped one or whatever.
A blazer in like tweed, flannel, cashmere can fit well with jeans.
this specific fit is more on the formal side of things, but I've seen some nice combos with lighter chalkstripe jackets
I just bought this, I thought I could wear it casually when I'm out. I have a striped shirt like that too.
Did I fuck up?
I often wear black blazers/jackets. Pic related, it's an unstructured polyester one I got from Uniqlo. Not every blazer/jacket is formal.
