Sometimes you guys say things and I have no idea what you're talking about. First, this whole notion about navy blue odd pants not being awesome is dumbfounding to me. I wear navy blue pants all the time and think they're amazing. I'd love to see some pictures where they don't work. Just like a navy blue blazer is a classic jacket, I see navy blue pants as being just as classic. Second, what is all this business about grey sport coats being wack. Again, I'd love to see a fail there as well. Pairing a grey SC with grey slacks is silly, because the colors are too close. Navy, beige and/or cream pants to name a few works well IMO. If I get a minute I'll find some pics. Ya'll crazy.
I beat you up pretty hard on the whole pleated mom-jeans thing a while back. However, on this topic, I agree with you 100%. I have no idea what all the fuss is about with either navy blue pants or grey sports coats. As long as you don't wear navy blue trousers with a navy blazer (or the grey+grey combo you cited), you're fine.
