About a month ago, I purchased a pair of light brown herringbone linen trousers from Lands End. At the time they seemed like a reasonably priced way to add some light brown linen to my summer wardrobe. After wearing them once, I'm starting to think that the large scale herringbone pattern makes for a somewhat incongruous look. It reminds me of some tweeds and other herringbone winter sport coats and just seems a bit seasonally inappropriate to wear in the summer even if it is linen. Pants are linked to below (unfortunately, I did not get a picture of me wearing them):
Am I way overthinking this or is there something to be said for avoiding certain patterns in the summer regardless of fabric? Currently I am thinking of relegating these to wear during warm fall days but I want to be sure I am not being overly paranoid. Would appreciate some thoughts from others on the forum. Thanks.
