How to Break Up a Suit | Wear a Suit Jacket as a Sport Coat?

Subscribe to Alpha M. on YouTube
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.
