If I could sweet-talk DerekS out of his maroon pants (and don't think I couldn't), seen here:

(or if I could get my hands on a similar pair) would they be a good combo with my dove gray herringbone silk-linen jacket, seen here? Please vote.

I don't know if this changes anyone's mind, but Derek's slacks are maroon, not red. I KNOW that red pants aren't for me, but I thought maroon might be a nice alternative to what I normally wear with that particular sport coat.

Personally I would consider "Dove Grey" to be too pale, almost stark, in comparison to the maroon. The upper half needs some kind of texture or pattern to counter-balance the boldness. In this respect tweeds are a good choice.

Edit: This is also the reason that navy is a traditional pairing, it is bold enough to equal the red. Most other colours are not.

I may be in the minority here, but I like it. Think Spoo may have nailed it though, can't see you being comfortable in red pants.

I guess I'm in the severe minority. I like it and think you can pull it off.

+1. I really think you need a strong pattern on top.
