One question comes up: can you wear a suit jacket as a sport coat? In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro answers the age-old question if you can break up a suit. Confidence and Fit Alpha straddles the line. He's seen it work terribly as well as wonderfully. But if you're comfortable and confident, you can pull off just about anything. If you own it, that's what it boils down to. It also boils down to FIT! To Break Apart or Not Break Apart 1. Depends on the fabric - if the suit has a shiny and single color fabric, it looks like more like a suit. If worn as a sports coat, it's too shiny and dressy. It looks like a suit jacket. If it has metal buttons, it's a blazer. Alpha demonstrates. 2. Lapel - you don't see too many peak lapel sport coats. Dry Clean Both Pieces Alpha discusses how he wears the pants that come with the suit as slacks. If you break apart the suit, make sure you take both to the dry cleaner, however, even if they both aren't dirty. The dry cleaning process changes the consistency of the fabric.

Whats the difference between a sport coat and suite jacket? Looks the same to me. Please reply.

Jahim Uddin What would you call the jackets from Kohls? I dont see a pair of pants in a hanger with it? Unless youre supposed to go and grab them from somewhere else on the store rack?
Jahim Uddin (9 months ago)
Rex Erection, Suit jackets will come with a matching pair of pants that are made from the same fabric and are a lot more tight fit. Sports jackets so not come with a pair of pants and are a lot looser and do not have as much structure around the shoulders
Rex Erection (9 months ago)
Jahim Uddin Didnt help much. All i got from it was the buttons. Still looks the same to me.

Can you wear short sleeved button downs with a sport coat?
Soare cu dinti (1 year ago)
I see your shirt button is almost falling off, if you close the upper one the shirt would probably look too small. i get that alot with S size so because i need more room for mobility i buy M, then i have to take them to the taylor to adjust the lenght... and yeah they look a bit baggy but there is no choice because my size is not usual, i have to custom everything and if the clothes are not expensive then tailoring them properly doubles the price... Any video for guys who don't fit in basic sizing and struggling with adjusting their clothes?

I kinda like how Aaron looks in this one (I'm not talking about the style combos he is showing off) just his clothing choices in this video in general. The glasses & the button downs pattern just mix beautifully. I think it fits Aaron a bit more than his usual look.

your jacket is too tight a fit on you. You see that x made by the fabric being pulled? That's too tight.
Tre' Roney (1 year ago)
skidrowsux1977 it's very unprofessional, butt stylish and new. I have some suits that fit like that that I don't wear in business but only to weddings or such
Teringventje (1 year ago)
that suit jacket works just because it would look terrible as a suit.
TSchull RN (1 year ago)
Random thought: I was wondering how you start avid. You should set a second camera up in the background. Then start your actual video and put both of the cameras footage into the video so we can see how you start.
Massimo Potignano (1 year ago)
I really like that pattern on your suit jacket. I've been looking form something like it. Did you get it off a custom site? Great videos by the way! They were a great help and deciding factor when I bought my first custom suit!
Kralj Kraljevic (1 year ago)
So i was thinking of breaking up a suit cuz i never wear it. So i would use my jacket with jeans. My suit jacket is navy blue with no stripes on it, so can it be paired up with a sweater and a shirt under it with jeans ofcourse ? Thanks :D
Teringventje (1 year ago)
navy suit jacket always works on a good jeans

What can I possibly do if my suit jacket is shiney? But I want to wear them with jeans.. Royal Blue colour! @alphaM
DubbyStep (1 year ago)
don't, just buy an actual sports jacket
bgz027 (2 years ago)
You should not wear a suit jacket as a blazer.  It has everything to do with weight (density) of the material
Teringventje (1 year ago)
wut? you can wear a suit blazer such as a charcoal or a navy on a good jeans, obviously....

do you usually wear glasses?

Hey alpha I'm 5'6 and weight 145lbs i have problems finding a blazer the 38r slim fit it looks nice but I can't even put my arm up because the the sleeves look so short and the 40R slim is too loose

Omar Zepeda if you're 5'6, then your coat size should be shorts, not regulars.

Definitely NOT!!! Wear a blazer/sport blazer with the right material
MrSoccerluvr4 (2 years ago)
He did say that a lot actually. If you are around people that don't really know the style then its fine, but stray away from if people actually know the proper style.
Angelo (2 years ago)
As much as I hate to admit it, you're right if you're going to be in any situation with people who know, e.g. business. If this is just for clubbing, it really doesn't matter.

You don't see too many sport coats with a peak lapel? That's not really true at all. Also there's a term for the "owning it" get up and it's called "sprezzatura" in Italy.

Hay Alpha baby! I have a herringbone jacket/blazer that I like to wear. What's the dos and don't of wearing that?
SWLinPHX (2 years ago)
If it matches you're fine. The color and material will determine how dressy it is.

Yo Alpha do you have any videos on shopping by label vs price?. I spend good money on suits, how do I know I'm getting what I paid for?
Chris Tsirigotis (2 years ago)
great clothes and all but I don't think that anyone would do any kind of sport wearing a suit...Don't get me wrong I like the idea but you wear suits for special occassions , professional businesses etc , not when you are doing a sport.
SWLinPHX (2 years ago)
I'm Greek-American but a sports coat or sports jacket has NOTHING to do with playing sports. In English "sport" or "sporty" also means more casual or playful, and less dressy (also like a "sports car"). For instance, a jacket you'd wear at your golf club or for afternoon cocktails at the harbor during the day or in your free time on the weekend riding in a convertible for a picnic.
Chris Tsirigotis (2 years ago)
+ickeausberlin36 Well I don't own a sport coat so I wouldn't really know and in my country ( Greece ) we call soccer , basketball , jogging a sport , not a chess game. Cheers
ickeausberlin36 (2 years ago)
+Chris Tsirigotis Well, I thought you were joking and so was I. To clear things up you might want to do some research on sports coats. The term does not mean it is meant to play ball in it but referres to a jacket less formal without matching pants. And by the way Chess actually IS a sport. Cheers
Chris Tsirigotis (2 years ago)
+ickeausberlin36 chess tournament ? And what muscles this activity involves , brain muscles ? We talk about sports like jogging..etc.
ickeausberlin36 (2 years ago)
Is that a joke? Go visit a chess tournament.

nick gebhardt (2 years ago)
Since fit is a staple to good clothing what are your thoughts on buying clothes online? So far I'm only buying from Nordstrom as they have a great return policy that if I don't like the item I can return it. This does however waste time having to go to the store to return and order another size and possibly having to try again.

How can you talk about suits when you look like a GEEK with the eyeglasses. You can not talk about clothes when you wear ear rings and glasses. I think you really want to dress like a broad you fruit!!

Hey Alpha, can you ever wear a pinstripe suit jacket as a separate coat and not with the pin stripe pants?
SWLinPHX (2 years ago)
If it is a dark navy for instance with a subtle pinstripe then yes, you could rock it with a pair of chinos or gray trousers.
