Plaid Odd Trousers?

Thread Starter 
Anybody game for some plaid odd trousers?

Yes, definitely.

I'll wear plaid/patterned odd trousers with a solid color wool sweater, patterned shirt underneath, and nice leather shoes.

You can even pair them with something like a fine-wale corduroy jacket with good results.

I have some and like them, with a white or other solid color shirt, for non-business wear. I tend to get compliments on them, which means either they really do look good or they look conspicuously bad and people are being nice.

I think they look great with a white shirt. I prefer them with western style pockets for some reason.

I like them with a cardigan swater and a buttondown collared shirt.

With braces and a porkpie hat. Avant-garde 60-70s punk at its finest!

I also like them because you can take subtle accent colors from the pants and tie them into the rest of the outfit.

For example, light gray glen plaid pants with a faint blue windowpane woven in the pattern, charcoal gray zip-up cardigan sweater, and a white dress shirt with sky blue stripes.

I found some deadstock plaid pegleg trousers that I couldn't resist, even though they're all manmade material. Very retro, and very, very warm. But one has to suffer for that swinging '60s style.

Seems like they are strongly suggested for this fall/winter

I came across a pair of Brooks charcoal glen plaid odd trousers recently. They're great.

All of my odd trousers are plaid/check'd. Sometimes I think I need to get something solid, but that's so boring.

IMO the best thing about plaid trousers is they can pair with the absolutely most conservative jacket patterns -- e.g., navy blazer, blue-black herringbone, and make the ensemble seem fresh and sophisticated.

This is how I do plaid

I like it the plaid odd trousers--these a flat front by Dunheel. I'm also wearing a vintage 50s shirt, vintage Borsalino, Sutor Mantellassi suede monk strap chukkas and a suede Robert Talbott belt.
