I'm going to work for Bain Consulting and anticipate wearing the traditional consultant-wear: light blue shirts, light blue stripes, maybe some light blue checks
I'm thinking of getting 3 suit pants. At first I was thinking 3 different colors, but I think just mid-gray would look the best.
I have AE black and AE brown.
Mid Gray) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...-100s-mid-grayI think this is TOO light for a conservative work environment
Dark Gray) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...100s-dark-graySeems like I should just by all 3 of this color, what do you think? Could both brown and black shoes work here?
Charcoal) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...-100s-charcoalcould I wear brown or black?
Navy) http://www.howardyount.com/collectio...uper-100s-navyprobably could only wear with brown shoes?
They are not crazy low (10.25') -- just low for my tastes as I have broad shoulders and like my rise to be around 12' to minimize my top heavy shape.
Epaulet Navy super 120's. Check them out. I have many pairs of trousers from them, good stuff.
Depends on how you are setup and based on how broad your shoulders are. It's not like a 12' rise is crazy high. 5'9 is not tall, but it's not stumpy. I'd give Epaulet a shot.
That's it -- navy is nice too -- I own many of the linens as well. Highly recommend,and if they don't fit ship em back.
You're going to have a tailor alter them (the pants are specifically designed to leave room for this) so don't fret if they don't fit perfectly out of the box.
