Sorry to bring back an old thread... but if wearing a grey glen plaid SC, what color trousers would be recommend and or acceptable for less dressy/more sporty occasions?

Any help?

Would jeans be kosher with a grey plaid sc?

I like this version from Steven Aver. Guabello fabric. This will be my next suit purchase from him. Steven has some more from different mills, all look great to me.

LOL. Is afraid to give an opinion? I think if the GP was a tight weave you could pull it off with a solid pant.

Yes, jeans can be worn with it. Someone might say it's non-traditional, but f*** 'em. And if I am not mistaken... Glen Plaid Price of Wales Refers to a specific style of Glen-plaid where the main pattern is black and creme and has a red and blue over check... The last pic posted is very close to POW. You can kind of see the over check in this picture, but I think the background is too dark to be a true POW.

Bringing this one back to the top for a fabric related question.

Does anyone have any suggestions on books or fabric numbers for a good 10ish oz prince of wales suiting? Looking for a conservative black/white plaid with a very subtle blue overcheck. Basically the opposite of those loud PoWs that foo was posting a while back.

In an effort to facilitate some dialogue here, what do folks think of the minnis fresco PoW? Below is a shot of it off of their website which unfortunately is not all that clear, has anyone seen it in the wild?

I think Black and White plaids are always going to be at the bolder end of the cloth range due to the contrast, especially a clear cut worsted. However, the fuzziness inherent in a flannel can soften the look a little.

Absolutely. In addition to the usual suspects of dark grey or black glen plaid check on a lighter grey background with no overcheck, blue overcheck and brick red overcheck, I also have suits with:
- Dark navy glen plaid check on air force blue background with red overcheck;
- Dark brown glen plaid check on mid-brown background; and
- Dark brown and cream glen plaid check on light brown background with blue overcheck.

Yes, absolutely. I also have a very pale grey linen jacket with a large-scale glen plaid check and it looks great with a pair of navy cotton trousers in summer.
