A denim jacket is a great way to give a tailored look a slight edge. Instead of having a blazer or sports jacket on, I've chosen a denim trucker jacket that serves as the clear statement piece.
It's vital to understand how to pull a look like this off, though.
The pairing of textures is essential when incorporating more dressy pieces with casual ones. For instance, these trousers are wool flannel and not worsted wool like what you would find from a formal suit. Mixing traditional suit pants (with their inherent "sheen") and denim doesn't harmonize well and just looks off.
My necktie is a navy blue grenadine tie that lacks the shininess of a pure silk or grosgrain tie and adds a bit more dimension with its rougher texture.
