How to wear a jacket and jeans look, number 5: Wear the right shoes

Always wear the combination of jeans and a sports coat with the right kind of shoes. Black Oxfords are way too formal and not appropriate here but at the same time, boat shoes are too informal and should likewise be avoided. Ideally, go with brown tones or burgundy and oxblood. If you want to be a little more experimental, you can go with olive green, gray or maybe navy. In terms of styles, a classic derby shoe is good. You could opt for loafers, either tassel loafers or penny loafers, both work. Other good options are monk straps with some broguing and a wingtip or those more fashion-forward double monks in burgundy. If you want to go with oxfords, go with brogues, either half brogues or full brogues, because that is casual enough to wear with jeans and it ties the ensemble together with your sports coat. Other good options include chukka boots or Chelsea boots. In terms of leather texture, suede is really great to combine with jeans and a sports coat because it is a little more casual. It is less serious and as such, it ties together those two elements of different formalities

Jacket with jeans Don’ts, number 1: Do not combine business jackets with denim jeans

Avoid black business suit jackets or pinstripe jackets with dark blue jeans. It looks weird and bad. As discussed before, while some suit jackets can be worn with jeans especially if they are more casual, any kind of business suit should not be combined with jeans, that includes solid navy jackets or maybe solid gray jackets but also any kind of stripe, pinstripe, rope stripe or chalk stripe. They will not look good with jeans.
