Jackets to Wear with a Shirt and Tie
The shirt and tie is an undeniable staple of men’s fashion, both as formal and everyday wear. Many of us have to wear this combination for the office, but it can be a stylish look for downtime too. It also has the added benefit of keeping you warm in the cold months of winter without drowning you in bulky men's knitwear.
If you want to smarten up your casual wardrobe and rock the shirt and tie, we’ve got some tips on the best jackets to pair with this look:
This quilted jacket by Gibson London is ideal for creating a smart casual shirt and tie ensemble, particularly in the winter months. It features a textured look and the neutral shade of the jacket makes it easy to match with different colours.
To create a slightly more elegant look, this navy strip linen jacket from Aston & Gunn would be perfect with a white shirt. A classy plain coloured tie would also go very well, but avoid patterns as they will clash with the stripe of the jacket.
The navy jacket is wardrobe staple, and always looks fantastic with a shirt and tie. Choose bold colours and patterned ties with a white shirt to bring this look to life, and for more texture (and warmth) add a smart jumper.
The double breasted jacket look may not be for everyone but’s it’s a unique alternative to your typical blazer. This style by Gibson London features a classic sage check design. The double breasted style is generally more flattering to slimmer shapes, and it’s best to wear plain coloured ties to avoid clashing with the check pattern.
This slim fit jacket by Limehaus is ideal for a sleek, contemporary shirt and tie look, in a stylish light blue that’s perfect for daytime wear. The slim lapels can be complemented by a skinny tie to continue the contemporary style, preferably matched with a colourful pocket square.
Shirt and Tie Combinations
The key to pulling off the jacket with a shirt and tie is keeping it smart casual. Adding patterns to a plain navy jacket such as a stripe tie or a check shirt can do wonders. Likewise add a plain coloured tie and white shirt to a striped jacket to complement this look.
