I'm like a broken record, so I'll say denimdenimdenim, but I think a heavy moleskin trouser could look nice, too - even some corduroys if the're more palatable than jeans. You could do a MOK-inspired look, for sure. Maybe some navy cotton trousers would work, too. And BOOTS. As it is, a bit incongruent (if we care about those sorts of things)
i agree with you here, even though i really see this jacket (its a jacket imo, quilted on the inside) as an MC item, not SWD. the flat pants and shirt do not seem to go well, it really works better with other thicker more textured pants and shirt. i should have worn the merino wool navy v-neck jumper i had planned to with these pants and shirt, but i love this jacket so much i often just grab it.
i think it would be cool to try moleskin, cords would be good to have as well. i am lacking in both those departments. i think i will try this jacket with chinos next time and see how i like it with a less dressy get up. i might surprise myself and like it a lot.
and yes, i feel congruency/coherency is very important.
