I think they look outstanding with jackets in the tan and light to medium brown range. Also with gray and gray-green jackets. I find them an attractive versatile addition to my wardrobe--at least the woolens and cords. Lighter cotton slacks in dark blue tend to fade and look crappy much quicker than cottons in other colors in my experience.

I have a tan jacket with a windowpane plaid pattern that only seems to work with navy slacks - although when I purchased it in London, I believe it was shown with green slacks and a checked shirt (not being British, I can't pull that off.)

I find navy slacks to be among the most versatile pairs I own, although I have to agree with JLibourel in that navy cotton slacks are a waste - it only took me one pair of Navy Dockers to learn that lesson.

i have yet to find the pefect odd jacket to go with my navy wool flat front trousers (I have one incotex and one Jil Sander (no crease)). I usually pair them with burnt orange or coral red slim sweaters. So far, the navy pants go really well with my military green saharienne, but I can't imagine a blazer in this colour

I wonder if a dark/mid grey tweed herringbone jacket would be nice with a navy wool pants. I believe it will, but I'm not sure.

Slim flat-front navy trousers with a pair of boots, a crisp white shirt, and a grey mid-length trench coat would be nice for a casual outfit.

I say 2 thumbs up. But my navy trousers I went M2M, and got a nice slim ff pair. They go great with cordovan loafers and sport shirts for a casual elegant look for Friday at the office. Most navy trouser I see R2W that I like are impossible to find on sale, or they get snapped up off Ebay pretty quickly.

It might have been worse there. I recall one poster showing nothing but contempt for working class people who he thought were the only ones crass enough to wear them.

Personally, I like them and wear them but only in wool. I don't have to worry about matching them to jackets because I rarely wear jackets.

I very much like navy trousers with sweaters in many colors. The sweaters are lighter and more colorful. So that trousers in a color, but still dark look pretty good, IMO.

I also like the navy trousers with jackets in grey. I believe they pair very well with the PoW pattern, for example.

Maybe this is just me, but I think you guys are thinking way too much about sport coats to go with pants. I'm not saying just go with a shirt and tie, but a cardigan or other sweater can go pretty well with them without the need for a jacket. That said, I'm probably going to get some flat front navy trousers with a cuff.

They can also look good with just a golf shirt.

I love this coat and decided to wear it one last time today before the fall weather (and wardrobe) really kicks in.




Great looking coat! I almost bought it when Decalo had that big run of 40Rs in July. I'm trying to squeeze out one last wear with the linen blend one I did buy while the weather holds (labour day? What labour day?). It also looks good with blue pants.

Golf shirt, polo, whatever you want to call it... yes. I usually prefer it when they have no side vents, that way it's more suitable for tucking in.

Typically, or so I thought, cuffs were for pleated pants and flat front were uncuffed, especially if tapered

I cuff (2 inches) all my flat fronts, and they are slim fitting. I can't imagine going back to wearing them uncuffed. Different strokes.
