there has always been an arguement in menswear as to whether it's right to wear a blazer, shirt and tie with jeans. purists hate it, but when you see something executed as well as the pic above, i think it's a hard argument to win!
great tonal colour combination, and the wash of the jeans and belt add to the sartorial irreverance of the outfit. i only hope he has the matching pants, as that would be one killer suit!

whilst i applaude anyone who embraces the sartorial world, there are a few rules that can't be broken, the main one being fit. i love the combo this guy has on, but it's all way too tight. the key to tailoring is having a streamlined look that doesn't look like a batsuit! here, the shoulders are too small, the bicep of the jacket too tight, as are the thigh and knee in the pants. A+ for coordination though!

really loving this look...whilst a black tie, chambrey shirt and cream suit goes against most peoples colour pallette, i think the prportions of the shirt collar and lapel really work. and the knit tie and shirt fabric (i own half a dozen chambreys!) keep it from being too stuffy...i don't think a woven tie would have had the same effect. one more for the wardrobe!
