Typically I don’t like to wear black shoes that much since I find them a bit plain. Sure they will go with everything but it’s a safe choice. A stylish brown shoe injects personality into your look. A brown shoe will go with almost anything and give your style that nice bit of pop to make you stand out nicely amongst the herd.
Style tip – Brown shoes will not typically go well with a black suit. Sure it can be done but for the majority of people I recommend staying away from it.
If you don’t like wearing suits because they are too stuffy and you don’t want to look like a total dicknose… then the navy blazer is for you. This jacket will be one of the most versatile things you have in your wardrobe. They can be paired with slacks, jeans, chinos, and even t-shirts( I cringed when I wrote that).
My preference for a navy blazer is white, off white, or gray pants.
This bro below is doing a good job of rocking it. Everything fits well and nothing is loose or baggy. If I’m going to wear jeans with the blazer I’ll make sure they are a dark rinse.
This last picture is the look you want to avoid. Or as some like to say… “The 80’s stand up comedian effect”. This is the shit I see Downtown San Diego where I just want to punch babies.
1. The jacket is to long and not tailored at all. He looks like he’s swimming in it. This is a far cry from the Bond we know on the big screen
2. The shirt offers no contrast to the jacket making him look extremely pale.
3. Bootcut jeans… I don’t think I need to even say anything about that. If you’re going to wear jeans with a blazer they should be fit not have a bunch of shit pooling around your ankles. Get your shit to a tailor and ask them to keep the original hem.
I’m not a huge fan of the cufflinks but I do like the use of red. The wood buttons just go with the warmth of the jacket fabric.
Great use of color here. As always a great look is really finished off by the details.
Allen Edmond Neumoks
I really like these Allen Edmonds. The shoe has a great modern sleek look to it, nothing chunky here. The leather has a distinct distressed look about it. These will go well with pretty much anything you throw at them.
