Men’s Sport Coats & Blazers You Can Wear With Jeans

Bonobos $298

Once I introduce a client to a sport coat, they fall in love. Some become downright addicted to the polish it gives their look. I have numerous clients who sport one every day (pun intended). What sells them is the ability to wear it with jeans as well as chinos. Notice that I didn’t say slacks. I am a firm believer in men’s sport coats being paired with jeans and chinos, not slacks. When you pair a sport coat with slacks, it often looks like you have mismatched a suit. This also means I don’t like “suit-looking” sport coats — nothing shiny or overly-structured for my clients. Instead, we gear towards rougher textures, casual fabrics, and lighter weight sport coats. Below are my favorite men’s sport coats right now.

Which Jeans To Wear With Blazers

Below are the blazers you can wear with jeans, but you do need to make sure you have the right jeans to go with these blazers. Here are the no-nos on wearing blazers with jeans or sport coats with jeans:

  1. Do not pair distressed, whiskered, or holey jeans with blazers.
  2. Do not pair whitewashed or super light-colored jeans with blazers.
  3. Boot cut jeans do not look amazing with blazers, especially on short men.

If we are talking blue jeans, you want a lean pair of classic medium blue jeans like these AG Dylan Slim fit jeans.

How To Wear A Sport Coat With Jeans

If you are going to wear a sport coat with jeans, follow these rules to ensure the best look:

  1. Tuck your shirt in.
  2. Pair it with dressy sneakers, or casual oxfords, like this Cole Haan Oxford in British tan.
  3. Match your belt with your shoes. (Pair this belt with the Cole Haan oxford above.)
