Is it acceptable to wear trench coats with jeans?
I really WANT a burberry trench coat, this one to be exact.
But the problem is, not being a Cityboy, I dont wear trousers, or a suit, i only wear casual clothing, ie jeans, polo, Canali cashmere top, etc. And being stocky, I cant get away with wearing my jeans tucked into my boots, so i wear gucci loafers.
Im wondering if i can get away with it, or if i will look stupid?2008 Avus Silver A3 1.8 TFSI S-Line S-Tronic Sportback - exhaust, induction, remap, lowered on H&R's.

depending on the coat, i'd say it goes very well with jeans.
and as long as you don't look too casual (like wearing a t-shirt).

This doesn't sound like a fashion question...it sounds more like a self esteem issue. Look, If you like the coat, by all means buy it and wear it with jeans and shoes. It's a timeless look and im sure you'll look great in it. For anyone to say stay away from trench coats because you're stocky...well let's just say I would take their advice with a grain of salt. Have confidence when you walk. Have confidence when you talk. Don't put the outfit on thinking, "I really hope this looks right on me." No! You piece the fit together, you put it on, and you wear it like you own half the country!
Buy the trench and let me know how ya like it. If you need assistance picking out a nice complimentary pair of jeans and shoes just let me know. But remember to own it! Hope that helps.

What jeans would I recommend? (I guess you haven't read my other posts huh?) The jeans that I would recommend are the jeans that fit. Get all the brand names out of your head and just look for a pair that fit you well. Without seeing your exact build I can't really make a solid recommendation, but there's a zillion denim designers out there, and I can guarantee that more than a handful will fit you very well. Go to a department store with a good denim selection, eg. Saks, Nordstroms, et al, and spend some time trying on different pairs that you like. Buy the pair that fit you well, not the pair with the label that everybody will recognize. People gawk at labels, but they recognize and respect proper fit. Whichever pair of jeans it is that fit you well, BUY MORE THAN ONE PAIR IN A DIFFERENT WASH. And remember, proper fitted jeans does not in any sense of the phrase mean skinny jeans. Buy a pair of properly fitted jeans and you're golden. Glad to help my friend.

Surely the big brands are better quality than the lesser ones, if both fit perfectly?2008 Avus Silver A3 1.8 TFSI S-Line S-Tronic Sportback - exhaust, induction, remap, lowered on H&R's.
