What kind of pants (except jeans) to wear with this blazer (charcoal)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've recently purchased this blazer:

 

http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/boss-hugo-boss-rayford-trim-fit-blazer/3534632?cm_em=&cm_mmc=email_tran-_-011914-_-ship_confirm-_-proddescr1

 

I've been wearing it with dark raw selvedge jeans.

 

 

However, I wanted to wear this to a casual-formal(!?) event and was wondering what other pants I could wear with this blazer besides those raw selvedge jeans I've been wearing together.

 

I've done a little research, and it seems like wearing pants with a similar shade(tone) is discouraged, as it makes it look like an orphaned suit jacket. 

 

 

 

So, I'm a little lost as to what kind of pants I should wear with this blazer besides a pair of dark jeans that I have. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks!!!!

I currently have these trousers in dark charcoal : https://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/pants/bowerypants/PRDOVR~47475/47475.jsp

 

 

This would make it look like an orphaned suit jacket, right?!

Indeed it will. You would want a sharper contrast in colour to carry it off
