Antonio, what kind of vent/s should I go with if I squat and it shows? I'm just guessing suit fit so it doesn't exaggerate anything? Thanks in advance for any advice you can throw my way.

whats a good value herringbone sport jacket brand.
HerrMeier007 (2 years ago)
Hi Antonio, I own a suit jacket, that pretty much looks like the sports jacket you are wearing in this video. The fabric and the color are pretty much the same, the only difference I could notice was the chest pocket and the buttons. But almost every people won't see the difference between this jacket and a sports jacket. I really like to wear this jacket with a jeans and a dark dress shirt (often times black). So my question is: Can I wear this combination? I like the Jacket more than most of my sports jackets, but I'm never quite sure if I can wear this combination or if I should wear a sports jacket instead. And what kind of shoes do you usually wear, while wearing a sports jacket with jeans? Greetings from Germany!

I've been looking at other videos covering this topic around YouTube and let's just say yours is still the best. The devil is in the details. Thanks, Antonio.

I wore suits to work for over twenty years and never thought there was a distinction between suit and sport jackets - interesting!

I play GTA V alot and the sport coats have a really nice looking straight drop where you would button the jacket. So, naturally I thought that this is what distinguished sport coats from suit jackets. I thought it was a visual difference, but it was just that Rockstar Games couldn't properly create an open jacket. I wish they had these in real life somewhere though, because they really look quite dapper, and like it would impress the ladies.

Hi Antonio,  The jacket that you were wearing in this video. What are the width of the lapel, and the height and the width of the gorge? Usually, what are the effects of small and low gorge have on your body image? (http://40.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3yj37jTmY1qa2j8co2_500.jpg) Tuan

Dear Sir. I am a 23 year old man with black hair and a medium colored skin. I would like to know if a medium grey (with charcoal accents in the pattern itself) herringbone sport jacket with brown elbow patches are appropriate for my age bracket. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

Plamen Evtimov (4 years ago)
Antonio, I have a quick question if i might. Is it appropriate to wear a napkin on a sports jacket ?  P.S I am talking when the sport jacket is in combination with dress pants not jeans and no tie.
Real Men Real Style (4 years ago)
+Plamen Evtimov napkin? do you mean pocket square? - yes - sports coat with a pocket square works
Victoryous (4 years ago)
This is off topic, but I notice that you usually don't wear a tie. In my opinion a suit is incomplete without one. Only until the last few years have I noticed people, even politicians, walking around tieless. Has this trend been around for a while, or is it new? I know you know how to, but it seems like going tieless is a demonstration that someone does not know how to tie a tie and refuses to put the effort into learning how to. I would like some info about this; even if it is just about me having a stiff aristocratic mindset. Thanks Antonio! ;)

what do you think about elbow patches on jackets? Please help. 
Anand Nagarajan (4 years ago)
Thanks for the reply. Is there any dos and don'ts that I need to keep in mind?
Real Men Real Style (4 years ago)
+Anand Nagarajan I think they add an interesting touch. A bit less formal but a nice way to add detail on a jacket.

Does it look all right to use a solid navy suit jacket more casually, as though it were a sports jacket? Or would it look silly and not stylish?

And what about a Sports Jacket and a Blazer?
Masterpsflood (4 years ago)
Blazer= metal buttons and Solid colour if not its a sport coat, disregard what i said before, some was true some confused
Masterpsflood (4 years ago)
I swear he did a video on that but I really cant seem to find it anywhere anymore- i remember buttons are one difference: sport jacket has those big golden buttons, and primarily blazers are blue (not always but usually) Sport coats are often different colours- green red, blue etc, blazer is more formal and can be double breasted. Sport coats often have more vents and extra patches, more fabrics, patterns and stuff to accommodate the sport, maybe more external stitches

I have two with elbow pads. Is that an automatic sports jacket?

What about elbow pads? I assume they automatically make a jacket a sport coat.

Enjoying your videos. you take up general things like how to fix your dress to help people like me look proper, all the way down to accessories for the extreamly interessted people. as in, what to have in your valet, rings and abit of history also including what signals it gives to people around you and generall tips as well to for example keeping your shirt tucked. keep up the good work!

Antonio, the double vent, by the way, was invented in Britain to ride as well. The Brits believed that the double vent allowed the jacket to sit higher on the waist when in saddle and especially when going over jumps (as the Brits did in the fox hunt). Everything about the English suit is inspired by equestrianism -- the pants sit higher, for a similar reason, and are only tapered at the waist. Also, if you watch modern Show Jumping you'll see that almost every rider wears a double vent.
Real Men Real Style (5 years ago)
You are welcome.
ErikJAwesome (5 years ago)
Thank you! I have a suit jacket sitting in my closet from the thrift store, and I was always curious to what it would be classified as!
sllim02 (5 years ago)
I had a question for you. I have this Calvin Klein jacket given to me as a gift. It is blue with pinstripes, and has a notched lapel, 2 button single-breasted, and double vented. I guess the oddest thing about the jacket is that it has no interior lining or padding and the jacket itself is made of 98% cotton, 2% polyester making it really thin, light and easily wrinkled. Would this be considered a sports jacket? Thanks for the video, again! It was really informative.

Thanks a lot Antonio! I have to wear a business casual outfit next week at my University and I recently bought a jacket (I didn't know if it was a suit or sport jacket), this video really helped me figure out what it was (it turned out to be a tweed sports jacket).

what if its 90 degrees, can you still wear a sports jacket and what brands would you recommend?

What would you comment on traditional blue sports coat with gold buttons? I've always seen/liked them a lot. Are they still acceptable/in style?

Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@carbidutz Wow, that was fast. Good work!
dantheman (7 years ago)
@RealMenRealStyle Just got myself a navy and I am Loving It!
Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@carbidutz Suitable but less versatile. We actually did a whole video on black suits and whether or not a man should buy one, right here on the channel -- I'd take a look at it! At the end of the day you CAN wear a black suit anywhere you'd wear navy or charcoal, but it often doesn't look as good and gives you less matching options.
dantheman (7 years ago)
@RealMenRealStyle Would black not be suitable?
Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@carbidutz I think we've got a first suit video on the channel somewhere, but the basic gist of it is -- dark color (navy blue or charcoal gray), single-breasted, two-button. Acceptable anywhere!
dantheman (7 years ago)
Im looking for my 1st(believe it or not) suit. Im really slim and Im worried I might look too skinny in a suit..I need it for my job though so there is no way around it :(
Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@CiMBoMTurkiye93 You can definitely wear your sport jacket with either dress slacks or good dark jeans. The jeans are more casual, but it's still a common and acceptable style.
Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@Dinonu I did - you have to seach for it though as YouTube doesn't let me link here:(
Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@avenancius Great comment - although I can't say I intentionally design the jackets shorter for my clients. Instead a accross the board I try to just barely cover the backside - a more modern look.
Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@TheWolfMusic12 I do it all the time and it looks great!
Real Men Real Style (7 years ago)
@AlainStocker I know - it's just a matter of time. Right now my wife edits the vids in her free time as we do this for fun (I run my clothier the other 10 hours a day!). Look for us turning this into a business soon so I can hire help!

drew barrymore (7 years ago)
I have indeed seen fabrics been utilized for both sportcoats & suits like Antonio says, I would like to say sportcoats run shorter on their overall length, whenever you want to use the jacket of a suit you would notice a bit "oddness" it doesnt look bad all, but suits are built to look as a 1 piece, if you happen to have a tailored sportcoat you would notice the jacket enhances your upper-body & generally runs shorter on their lengths, I would even say sportcoats have narrowed waists
JonUIUC (7 years ago)
Antonio, are you wearing a hidden button down shirt? I noticed a little pulling, or are you using those magnetic collar stays? I like single vents with longer jackets w/ more waist suppression. Single vents on avg/shorter jackets doesn't seem as "right" to me.. Although half my jackets are single vent...
Static Wolf (7 years ago)
I usually wear a dark pair of jeans(typically a very dark blue/indigo color) is that ok? not ok? what's your thoughts on it?
Antonio Centeno (7 years ago)
@stemcgolf I guess I was pretty hard on them - funny you're the second person today to mention it (we had a Facebook comment along the same line). Thanks for commenting!
