    Right then chaps,

    Just bought a three button blue tweed heringbone blazer But a stumped on how best to wear. I always get a bit confused with blue jackets (lame I know).

    I'm guessing black jeans are a safe bet, but any tips on tops or shoes would be ace.

    Scrap the tie, and Nathan's outfit is a good one in a casual situation. It may be easy to get into a habit of wearing ties casually, but personally I think they're a cumbersome, unnescessary accessory. In a smarter situation they're fine, but on the streets I do think they look quite tried-hard. I wore one into Spoons, and got the dirtiest looks I've got in my life. Obviously it's a dirty place in itself, but I realised when I got home that sometimes there is a time and a place for everything. Casually, it's good to let the shirt speak for itself when out and about. Just my 2p though. I do like ties, but I prefer to save them for smarter occasions.

    This particular blazer goes with a lot. It's easy to wear with most colours of jeans. You could also consider a burgundy pair, or even a grey/black/burgundy pair of cords.

    Ben's probably right. Personally, I probably get a self-indulgent, vain kick out of the odd dirty look. =P

    I find that you can tone a tie down with a casual bit of knitwear. I was wearing a grey knitted tie to a restaurant the other day and an Allsaints cardigan over the top seemed to make the whole thing look a bit more toned down.

    I guess it's all down to habit. I feel quite plain without anything around my neck in the evening.

    I know what you mean. I love wearing them, but I've realised that when family sees me wear them, it takes the formality out of the outfit if they see me wear it a lot.

    By all means wear it! I personally wish everyone would throw their cuffed chinos away and adopt a smarter aesthetic. But where I live, I can't see this happening any time soon...
