At this particular restaurant, every single guy in the joint (20-and-30 somethings for the most part) was wearing black, and most had on black pants. I wasn't paying that much attention (I was with a date after all), but it really jumped out at me because I was the only guy wearing any color (blue & white gingham shirt, mid-grey wool slacks, steel blue silk jacket). Believe me, there weren't any wool trousers - this was a "street" sorta place. I'm going to guess they were primarily black jeans and black leather pants by their fit. But there are slim-fit chinos out there (RLBLs, for instance, makes 'em), that look pretty urban so I wouldn't be at all surprised if there were some in the joint. The night before we were at a nicer restaurant and it was the same thing, except maybe the black was a bit more upper-scale in cut and fabric - a little less street. But regardless, again, I was the only guy in any color at all. Here's one suggestion
for wearing all-black in a sort of "non-street" manner. What do you guys think?
