Would they work with EG winter fabrics or best left to the warmer months ?
Edit : mbaum + eluther are good at this
Wow - just caught up on four weeks of posts in here. there are some really stellar fits. Everything from the traditional workwear to more "out there" stuff. So well done @ManofKent , @agvs , @ramdomthought, @CJAM and @Gerry Nelson.
@modual , I think others gave great advice. I like those pants and see no issues in combining seasons. In fact, MoK does that really well and so usually do the LA dudes, like @Cotton Dockers, as our climate allows for that.
In addition to what others said, I would look to SS14 for more inspiration. That was a super strong EG season with tons of gray pants. You will find those combined with a lot of blue jackets and a bit more colorful shirts. A direction I recommend. You can even be daring and combine those pants with highly patterned jackets (Black batik or Foulard print in blue comes to mind).
Or you can simply throw on a blue moleskin Bedford - and do it very conservatively with white shirt or crazy it up with colorful/ patterned shirt or even a shawl.
I think those pants also work in a more casual setting with this season's leisure jackets. Perhaps the stand-out cable knit will work for an all-gray/ monochrome scheme. And you can roll them up with Vans and this summer season's navy linen explorer jacket and a simple tee ...
Tons of possibilities ... post 'em here.
