A few of my fans wanted to hear my thoughts on the blazer & jeans (b&j) look. Well let me first say that it takes a certain kind of person to pull the look off. Now I know there are going to be some ladies that disagree with what I am about to say. But all I ask is that you hear me out. But before I continue you must read my disclaimer.
The opinions and thoughts about to be shared do not make me gay in any way. I am simply sharing my thoughts and opinions on a topic selected by my peers.
Now what kind of person does it take to pull off the blazer & jean look? Well first of all it helps if you are at least 5′ 8″ or taller. I have seen short guys try to pull of the look and it just looks weird to me. If you happen to be like me and developing a little bit of a gut then the blazer & jean look will not work. The b&j look is common for those pretty boys that like to wear skinny leg jeans. Yeah I am talking to you Jordan Holloway-Jonas!! Now please keep in mind that there are always exceptions to these rules.
I am sure that the ladies disagree with the b&j look. I will agree that the look does not work in the following scenarios…
- Dark blazer worn with light blue jeans
- Light blazer with dark jeans
- B&J with cowboy boots or hat
- If over 40 b&j with shirt untucked
- If under 40 b&j with shirt tucked
- B&J with sunglasses indoors
- Must have the right shoes.. dress shoes or all white shoes..
- Over 40 b&j with mock shirt or button down
- Under 40 b&j with button down or cool t-shirt
I think the b&j look is a step up from casual. I think the look works for younger and more established gentlemen. A colleague of mine from Dallas pulls the b&j look off like a pro. On a good day, I can pull the look off as well. I just think that for men, we really don’t have many options as women do with clothing and fashion. I am very curious to hear why women don’t like the look? If it is because of the b&j look no-no’s then that is why. Talk to me people. I want to hear your feedback…
