A look that inspires 3 - the well-dressed older man

This elegant gentleman is dressed in a way I like very much.

A plain, well-cut and fitting linen jacket with brass buttons, striped shirt, jeans that fit perfectly and look as though they have worn naturally (I dislike artificially-distressed jeans) and good quality loafers and socks. Above all, he looks relaxed and comfortable in his clothes.

Simple, stylish and effective.

Sorry, I've in error deleted a couple of comments from this post.

One reader quite rightly pointing out that all my images of stylish men wear jackets.

I'm aware of this weakness - I like jackets, but wouldn't claim that one is needed to look stylish.

I need to branch out a bit.

At the same time, a jacket really does polish things up (even very dubious and questionable things, sometimes, can be entirely bypassed with the aid of a good jacket), and that is not a coincidence.

The jeans, and the open-necked shirt worn with a jacket, both separately and together, are the opposite of stylish as far as I am concerned.

Yes, I take your point TheSeventhSphinx - I suspect that's why I like jackets.

I'm not sure what point is being made in Anon's comment. Are you saying that open neck shirts shouldn't be worn with a jacket?

GF - I really like the look! I have worn jackets and blazers all my adult life (am 52) and can say it does make one look more stylish with less effort. As to jacket with jeans - of course! Try double breasted linen (eg Drakes Navy Caruso blazer) with denim OR a grey flannel blazer, navy sleeveless cardigan in winter months for example. The only thing I would add to outfit above is a linen or cotton pocket square. Trust me - try this and your wife or partner will "look" at you differently and in a positive way. Dimitrious
