What to wear with linen pants? - Page 2

post #16 of 38
I wonder if I could wear slim fitting white linen pants with a light blue wool sport coat.

Thoughts?

Sure, very summery.

It's been too cool for linen around here lately, but warmer weather returns this weekend. I'm looking forward to pulling out my linen goods.

This past weekend, I wore some white linen pants with a pink oxford shirt with the sleeves rolled up and Allen Edmonds Weybridges. The shoes weren't ideal, but I think it still worked.

Weybridges look awesome! Brown, I assume? Great shoes. I own a pair.

what are the best coloured linen pants to wear? Or traditionally what are the most popular colours?

Ive got a stone coloured pair, and a brown pair.

The word stone always confuses me. To me they are cream really. Tan is like a safari colour isnt it? Ecru?

I think of stone as having a gray hue whereas cream has tan. Ecru has a green hue.

I just got the Allen Edmonds Reveres in Stone and agree that it's more like cream.

+1 A linen shirt goes well with some light poplin chinos. I prefer a darker linen shirt - harder to see all the wrinkles.

55%linen and 45% cotton shirt is a good compromise though isnt it if you dont want to wear a linen shirt with linen pants?

A white "guayabera", panama hat , an ascot, and an Havano.

Thanks for trying to explain. But colour confuses me in general. Now, Khaki, that is another colour that is a bit weird. I bought a pair of combats and the colour was described as khaki. But to me they look green.
