Color and style sportscoat to go with dark navy trousers? - Page 2

post #16 of 41
Just bought this cloth for a SC. I am thinking of navy flannel trousers to go with it

I'll try and get a better pic, but would this (cotton/linen blend) jacket work in this colour with dark blue chinos?

This thread is relevant to my interests - one of my preferred pairs of trousers is a set of navy blue moleskins. I have worn them with green corduroy and grey herringbone wool jackets, and even a Gieves hacking jacket in a rather 'out-there' green and pumpkin-coloured check.

I find it all actually comes down to your choice of shoes and belt. A good idea, for example, is a brown leather belt with a pair of dark brown brogues. Brown acts as a good 'bridging' colour which allows you to wear a grey/green/tweed jacket on top. The end result is a pleasing tritone earthy/country/naval palate. When it comes to shirts, blue trousers tend to 'demand' a blue shirt, but I would always stick to a stripe pattern or a check at a stretch; plain blue-on-blue doesn't work so well.

Black shoes necessitate a dark grey or even black jacket for the sake of balance. But you run the risk of looking like a chimney sweep. I have to say I usually avoid wearing black footwear with navy blue trousers for this reason.

They're navy pants... how hard can it be? Pics below. Otherwise, just picture a navy sportscoat.... what color pants would you wear? now inverse the colors/objects.

Dark Brown


Redish Brown / rust


Mid Brown


Camel


Beige


Light Blue


Charcoal


Light Grey

I know they don't get much love around here, but I have a couple of pair of navy trousers and wear them frequently. I pair them most with these two jackets:

Tan with cream windowpane

I have a brown/rust district check coat that looks great with navy trousers. I is baffled why they don't get more love. Probably b/c they can't be worn with the most common of all odd coats - the blazer.

Agreed, I recently wore a seersucker jacket to a wedding, with blue trousers. Brown would also look good with navy.

I have a chocolate brown sportcoat with a faint blue windowpane plaid that is one of my favorites. Looks great with blue pants and gets a lot of compliments.

If that is is supposed to intimidate me you failed miserably. I will not be replying to further provocation from you on this thread as I frankly have better things to do with my time than respond to your inane offerings.

I'm still not sold on navy pants with a sport coat. Somehow I always think gray or tan look better.
