Well perhaps I havent' lived yet, and your post had me second guessing so google helped me out with the following perspective on Nantucket Red:
Hitler: Let's have the Waffen SS wear Nantucket red pants for their uniform! That would look snappy!
Mr Hugo Boss: Mein Fuhrer, while that clearly conveys an asshole vibe, it is hardly intimidating. I recommend sticking with grey, black or olive.
Hitler: Ja, you're right. Can I still use it for the draperies in my bunker?
Don't get me wrong, I thought your 10 commandments were good, and your basic wardrobe list was just under "ok", but I'm going to reserve "nantucket red pants" for the "things to buy in the days before committing suicide" list.
Alright, I'll ask you a question. How much tan, khaki, grey or navy pants can you wear before tiring of the tedium? After these essential colours, what would be the colour for pants that you would wear for fun and live another day?
