How about something like this?

Jeans, rolled cuffs on button down shirt, and a black vest? Or if you’re really not into the best, black jeans and the rolled cuff shirt by themselves.

Vest, not best. 

I hate auto correct.

Black pants and white button-up shirt with black dress shoes and a tie? Not using a jacket would make it a more casual look in my opinion.

DH has a sport jacket that’s like a denim material but darker, not sure what material it is really.  How about something like this? I’m a fan of wire shirts, khakis and loafers!

Chinos, linen granda shirt and black blazer would look good

I’m with PPs: I would go with beige or navy chinos with a black blazer and white open-necked shirt. Then footwear I would go with a brogue or loafer in tan/brown.

Not sure if my idea will fit the season of your elopement, but I’ve always loved the look of a formal cardigan or sweater.  We’re having a casual backyard wedding and my groom will be in something like..

Erinandcookie :  My DH wore very dark nice jeans, a navy checked dress shirt, vest, suit jacket and a tie. He wanted to be himself but still be dressed up, so he opted for dress jeans instead of suit pants. It looked really nice!

What I’d do is a sharp blazer, crisp white button up shirt tucked in, nice new dark jeans that aren’t too baggy or too skinny (and no distressing or excessive fading), nice leather belt, and NICE SHOES.  Johnston & Murphy makes gorgeous shoes that can seriously dress up a pair of jeans.  If he doesn’t wear the nice shoes, then you’ll run the risk of him looking slobby/TOO casual.  In the pic a PP posted, the dudes in sweaters would be much better off in nice shoes – the sneakers look kinda trashy in my opinion)

Blazer + jeans + nice Johnston & Murphy shoes is probably my favorite look on my fiance, and if we were going for a casual affair that’s what he’d do.
