I have chocolate brown leather pants that I would like to wear out in the evening. Is a light brown suede, outdoorsy jacket tacky to wear with these pants? (Kettering, OH)
The most important thing about coordinating leather and suede is that the color, weight, and finish blend.
For a fairly regular casual night out, you can probably fake them together by pulling in another soft texture, like a cashmere turtleneck . If the occasion is more formal, you may want to add a dressier wool jacket.
Ruff hewn leather is very modern, don’t match a well-worn finish with something totally done like pearlized, glazed, or patent leather… keep finishes like with like.
