I finally boght a pair of white pants, now what

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
They were a impulse buy, and I thought I would wear them in lieu of khaki pants with a sport coat this spring.

I normally wear white shirts, but I feel this will be to bright, and a tie would not break up the mono tone enough if I ever take the jacket off. The obvious solution is to wear one of my light purple or blue shirts, but I thought I'd play around and see if I could still get away with a white shirt with the use of a light weight sweater vest, but I'm just not sure.

I'm visiting friends in Florida in a few weeks and would like to be confident packing them.

Suggestions?

Pray you don't fuck em up the first time you go out drinking like I did with both pairs I made the mistake of purchasing.

Yeah, don't wear a white shirt unless you're planning on a sweater too. What I like is white jeans with a light blue shirt and grey or khaki sport coat. A bit boring, but whatever. Navy and white is too nautical for a landlubber like me.

Embrace the nautical.

They are light cotton trousers. I only were jean's when I'm doing some sort of outside work, so white jeans are out of the question for me lol.

I love white pants and i wear them with any colorful shirt. Also works great with a seersucker jacket. I even wear them with a brown corduroy jacket now and then. You can wear flips with them or boat shoes or desert boots or canvas shoes. White pants are playful and refreshing.

Hope the pants have good lining and pockets in the back or else your dark color shirt will show under your light white cotton if you tuck in your shirt.

Get them tailored so that they aren't too long.

Get light colored or white socks

Wear with light colored suede shoes

Blue shirt

Get a tan

Don't wear white tightie whities, wear grey briefs or freeball it.

Get a tan "Or apply self Tan product"

Don't wear white tightie whities, wear grey briefs or freeball it. Just be careful when pulling the zipper up in freeball case.

+ 1 great advice. Im no fan of white trousers, but in this setting, it looks quite decent.

just because you can doesnt mean you should. The only time a man is ever able to wear flip flops is when the are ON the beach. not near, not close, not on the way to ...but ON THE BEACH.

I agree on the desert boots though. A brown suede with white pants looks great.
