How you can pull off wearing jeans with jacket?
1. Pair your blazer or sport coat only with your dressiest jeans. That means no holes and no used look. Also it's really important that you have enough contrast between your sport coat and your jeans.
In terms of cut, a straight leg or maybe something that slightly tapered works best. Definitely avoid really baggy cuts as well as a bootcut. Also don't cuff or pin roll your jeans because that's simply too casual.
2. Rather than going with a navy blazer, instead branch out and maybe go with jackets that have different colors as well as patterns and materials because that's more contrasting or interesting, but also more casual and it works better with jeans.
3. Make sure to wear your denim and your sport coat with casual shirts to bridge the gap formalities. Long-sleeve dress shirts are good but ideally you should avoid the most formal variations in solid white because they're just too businesslike.
4. Wear the combination of jeans and sport coat with the right kind of shoes. Black oxfords are way too formal and not appropriate. At the same time boat shoes are too informal and should likewise be avoided.
What shoes should you wear?
Ideally go with brown tones or burgundy and oxblood. If you want to be a little more experimental you can think about olive green, grey or maybe navy.
In terms of styles, a classic derby shoe is good just like those burgundy derbies or olive green derbies. Alternatively, you could opt for loafers either tassel loafers or penny loafers. Another good options are monk straps such as those brown single monks with some broguing and a wingtip or those more fashion-forward double monks in burgundy.
If you want to go with oxfords go with brogues either half brogues or full brogues. Other good options include chukka boots or Chelsea boots.
In terms of leather texture, suede is really great to combine with jeans and a sport coat. Why? Simply because it's a little more casual.
When should you not wear jeans and jacket together?
1. The biggest mistake I see men make in this situation is that they pair a traditional business suit with a pair of jeans they have. Particularly it's that black business suit jacket or that pinstripe jacket that they wear with dark blue jeans and it just looks weird and odd.
2. Don't combine jeans with a double-breasted business jacket. Double-breasted is typically more formal. However in recent years double-breasted jackets have become a lot more popular especially at Pitti Uomo. And if you have something that has a nice linen blend maybe with the Prince of Wales pattern and lighter colors, you can definitely combine them with jeans.
3. Never wear a t-shirt with jeans underneath a jacket because it's a clash of formalities.
4. Never wear any kind of black shoes especially not black dress shoes with this combination because it looks out of place. Instead go with browns, tan tones, burgundy tones, greens or anything else but not black.
5. Jeans with a jacket are not ideal if you want to wear a tie, a bow tie or maybe an ascot simply because it would be too formal and a clash. Instead go with a pocket square or maybe a boutonniere because that creates a visual interest and it just creates for a more polished look.
6. Don't wear jeans with a jacket if you want to have a formal dress shirt.
7. Don't wear jeans and a sport coat if you don't know the dress code or if you're unsure about the formality at the event or the occasion you will wear it to.
During the colder months of the year, a tweed jacket
works really well with jeans simply because it's more casual by definition. That being said there are tons of other jackets which are less formal and therefore equally as well suited to jeans as a tweed jacket. Some of them include a Panama jacket which is more of a summery jacket. Another one, the Harrington jacket.

I haven't watched this video yet but... Maybe you'll change my mind. I do wear jeans with a classic white Oxford and maybe a simple vest. I live in a city and am active walking to the park maybe a city cookout and in this environment you can end up sitting on surfaces that are not smooth and could snag and damage slacks and or dress pants. But I never wear black jeans usually a deep indigo. Let's see if this changes after the video.
Never said he wasn't. The difference in the middle of the video isn't that big between both hosts. But whenever I start watching a video from the beginning Raphael just makes it so much more wholesome and that just sets the entire mood for the video for me. So if he works on that, just the way he greets the viewers, he'll be just fine..
for me, i wear, summer colors in the winter, and winter colors in somer, only exeption is blacks and dark clors,
i means, i will wear like green if its a dark gloomy day, if its a sunny day i wear a earthy brown colors, . and black i mostly wear in winter, and in sunny days, besides that i never wear black unless its jeans, never shirts, too hot. finally and thats just the taste of my style, so if you invit me to a chrismas party, expect me to wear a yellow, greens or white. not black, greays or drak browns
it really depends on a few questions
question 1, are you a high class, classy like this guy on video, , if no. then fallow the rules
never where old patch jackets that this guy is whereing . use your best judjment. it will work,
rule 2 dont have a baby face, grow facil hair, even if its a 4 o clock shadow.
never where a suit jacket, where a blazer. reason, suit jackets have matching stuff with pants and vest, and is a total them
rule 4 you can where a blazer, if your going to pub, or night club, or your job is construction, or you do lots of rugh work that requires you to where jeans do to more derability
ps also suit jackets, cant be matched with anything but the suit pant, or you can , but it gose aginst what is its original perpus .
Fine video appreciate the recommendations on how to properly pair a jacket with jeans just one question you mention tweed jacket as one option I'm wondering would a camel hair jacket work well with jeans thanks for sharing the video.
Erm i cant start to take you seriously because your suit jacket has a weird crease on your side of your chest to your right are you sure your suit is bespoke? It looks terrible. Please get it fix by your tailor
I personally think that jeans with suit jackets is too much of clash of formality for me. I think that jeans with a white(ironed) dress shirt with a leather jacket is a good combination. I tend to undo the two top buttons of the dress shirt for a more casual look.
I just want to share a constructive comment: Try to take more care about the volume of the different takes on the video. Most of the time, the Gentleman Gazette logo with jazz music is louder than the rest of the video.
Great job, by the way.
Done well, there’s nothing cooler than jeans with a sharp jacket and shoes. My advice is dark, slim jeans with an aniline tan brogue and either a classic wool navy blazer, or a Harris Tweed herringbone grey jacket. Double breasted with jeans.....never! And please don’t wear anything other than laced footwear (but never trainers) or face the judgement of the best women you may encounter!
I have a grey border tweed jacket that goes quite well with smart jeans. If you really like the jean-jacket combo also consider non denim jeans. I have some olive jeans that look great with a navy cotton sports jacket.
At the start of the show is the best Iv seen you being urself....that is you, the haircut and the lay of your clothes, plus the colors were a great match. Later on during parts of the show the shirts were too tight in your stomach area. I can taylor the cut best for you with a good neck fit with a fuller cut in your stomach area. Nothing wrong with fuller body types as a result of good living.
Raphael, while I agree with you on almost every point, I must disagree about peak lapels and ….. It is not the lapel that dictates the formality of a jacket, but the clothe. A single breasted, cord or tweed jacket, with peaked lapels, would never be considered leaning towards formality. Thus, could be paired up with jeans. Square ended knit ties, an oxford shirt, jeans, and a sport coat also can create a fine presentation, so a tie with jeans? Sure, if it's the right tie / short combo. French cuffs and jeans? Sure why not. Silk knot play full cufflinks, with a pattern shirt with French / double cuffs, will work. Fabric, pattern, and link selection are key though. The rules are meant to be bent and sometimes broken. The trick is being confident enough to pull off the look.
Nice jeans/jacket combinations. The somewhat lighter colored jeans with a navy blazer works works well too. I think it still is a common mediterranean look, sockless, great fitting expensive jeans, nice shoes/loafers.
I need to disagree for once. I really like this outfit: Black dress boots, dark jeans with a nice, but not too tight fit, leather belt, a white or light blue dress shirt and a 2 button navy jacket. Love it!
I wear an RM Williams wool sports coat in houndstooth with a simple white shirt over Levi 501s, they require cuffing but paired with RM Williams stockman's boots in tan kangaroo leather the ensemble works as a kind if smart/casual farmer look. Ideally an Akubra should also be worn but I can't pull off hats!
I wear black jeans with blazers, though jeans that are fitted, but not skinny type. I wear slacks, and dress pants all in black alike, around the same group of people. I imagine it is because of the black, but no one has ever noticed or commented on the difference of my pants.
Blazers, bow-ties, shirts, shoes on the other hand... all of that. I don't own a single pair of blue jeans personally, I think they make blazers look... "downgraded". Not bad, or sloppy. It just takes an edge off them to me, for whatever reason.
My two cents, having worn black jeans with very sharp outfits on many occasions.
I was not allowed to wear jeans as a kid because my lower middle class parents believed that jeans were a sign of being poor. Plus, they have such a heavy fabric. Maybe that's why people wear them with rips..... Poverty of appearance continues!
I absolutely love your videos. Yes, I'm a woman, but I like to learn! Plus, I pass on some information to my son. I don't care that he's only six, it's never too early to learn to be a gentleman. Off-topic, but I love your accent.
I pull this look off all the time though I skip the tie. I'm an account executive in the South and a lot of my clients idea of dressing up would-be khakis and a golf shirt. I enjoy wearing a sport jacket so rocking a nice pair of jeans with a jacket is a great solution for me not to come across as overdressed.
In my opinion, jeans should be worn by those who do any type of labor, since is made of denim which is very thick and resistant from breaking. Blazers, Dress Shirts, ties and dress shoes should not be associated with those overrated pair of pants.
Yes and no. The rational reasoning behind telling people to wear a suit as a pair is that most people only own one basic navy or charcoal business suit. So lets say you wear the jacket more often then the pants. Eventually the jacket will be become discolored and will be visibly different then the pants. Which is not a good look.
You also increase the risk of spilling something on one of the pieces and it being at the dry cleaners when you need a suit. Since you are wearing each piece more often then you would a suit. Hence the general advice to not wear a suit separated. Though when you build up a collection of suits so that you can always have a business suit on hand and have a rotation going so you are wearing each piece less it is fine to wear a suit as separates. Especially if they are in a casual fabric such as tweed or color like brown.
This video could not have come out at a better time - with fall quickly approaching I'm going to start wearing jeans more often. Growing up in sunny southern California I never had the need or interest to wear jeans. Now that I'm in Indiana jeans are much more of a necessity. Still I've never really liked the jeans + sweater look. This is a great way to incorporate dressier menswear a and still wear jeans. Thanks for the advice, Gentleman's Gazette!
I would love to get your opinion on something, obviously you should match your shoes to you belt, but do you really need to wear a suede belt with suede shoes or is this an opurtunity where you can simply match the shoes with a more casual weaved belt or such? thanks
Very well done, Rafael. I often wonder what newer elements of men's style are simply trends (the vast majority, I believe), and what will one day be considered classic style. I have a feeling that this pairing is here to stay; however, even if it is not, I very much appreciate that the Gentleman's Gazette addresses many of the more popular current trends and helps us make them work within a classic framework. Keep up the good work!
