Matching Men’s Coat and Pants

Alright, I admit that this is probably embarrassing and sad…I have difficulty making good fashionable choices. Especially when we start talking about branching out to different colors, matching clothes, and all that. Honestly, if I could get away with it, I’d just wear khaki shorts and a black t-shirt every day at home, and gray slacks with a light blue shirt everyday at work. No variation, just easy clothes selection! That’s probably not a good idea for anyone, so occasionally I have to brush up on what I can actually wear.

At one point, I was trying to figure out if I could effectively wear sports coats and slacks, so I made this handy little print-out. I don’t even wear sports coats (I stick to suits if I need a jacket), so I guess this page isn’t even valuable for me. But, maybe it will help someone else who’s trying to diversify his wardrobe. I can’t really remember what I based this on, but I’m sure it comes from various websites professing expertise on the topic. Here’s my matching cheat sheet:

  • I know this post is like two years old, but I feel like it’s worth pointing out that it’s probably incorrect. Based on my googling, it seems like it’s actually okay to wear a navy shirt/coat with black pants now.
