To wear a sports coat, pair it with a button-down shirt and tie for a classic, stylish look. If you prefer a more casual look, wear your sports coat with a solid colored t-shirt or polo shirt. To pair pants with a sports coat, opt for trousers in neutral colors, like beige, black, or gray. You can also wear a sports jacket with jeans, but make sure that the jeans are in excellent condition, and paired with a neat, sleek belt in a neutral color. Then, finish off your look with a pair of casual dress shoes, like loafers or Oxfords. For more advice, including how to keep your sports coat in good condition, keep reading.
