Communities tend to create a pariah. Among men, who favour classic style, jeans is the pariah. They represent all the evil that has come upon clothing nowadays. They are raw, dirty and ready-to-wear. They belong to a regime of protest instead of politeness. Jeans might be cool and sexy but they cannot be elegant.
Many men, who like classic style, the younger generation in particular, don’t subscribe to old dogma, though. They are not afraid of blending: Why not combine what cannot be combined? They put on shirt, tie and jacket pairing them with jeans.
