^ navy pants might work with that, but it also might come off as too "outfit-y" since navy is so predominant in the pattern. I'd go with gray. Sounds boring, but I think it would look better.

From the evidence presented in this thread, I hereby renounce the rule, "No navy odd trousers."

Agree with you on this one.

I have them in flannel, cotton canvas, and chinos. I like navy trousers for something to wear more casually, sort of like an alternative to jeans. Maybe with just a grey sweater or cardigan for example. But technically in terms of colour I think navy 'goes' with almost anything...

Are "navy pants" the new "black suit"?

Indeed, I only wear my navy flannels in casual settings where jackets are not required. Looks pretty good with a camel or grey jumper and a Forestière or some such.

My burgundy and purple jackets have worked very well with my navy trousers Otherwise, Master Classter offered the best evidence, thus far

Browns go beautifully with blue trousers, in particular if your pants are not a fine business worsted weave I have seen a sand/beige SC go very well with navy herringbone pants. Accent with tan/chestnut. The hate on this forum for navy pants primarily stems from the influence of 2 people: and manton. And then you have all the johnny come latelys trying to prove their e-street cred to each other by trying to outdo each other in clothing fundamentalism.

As with most things pertinent to MC, I think it is a matter of tradition and different influences. I would for instance never wear an odd charcoal trouser and have none, for much the same reason as with navy blue. In general I just prefer lighter coloured trousers with sports jackets. I leave solemnity to all those days wearing suits.
